Jackson, Wyo. (November 21, 2016) Teton Gravity Research (TGR), the global leader in youth-culture media releases a clip from its twenty-first anniversary ski and snowboard film, “Tight Loose”, in which a professional skier, Nick McNutt, accidentally triggers an avalanche, requiring him to outrun the slide from the very top of the run.
This past winter Nick McNutt was skiing in the North Cascades when he faced the most dangerous element of big mountain skiing, an avalanche. Fortunately, the Canadian showcased not only his strength as a skier, but his ability to perform under pressure. McNutt was able to point his skis and safely ski out of the avalanche. The avalanche segment can be seen in “Tight Loose” which is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.

This could be the start of the slippery slope to becoming, what people across the state have termed, a "Masshole." Massholes are an aggressive creature, especially while driving. They have
Professional mountaineers Cory Richards and Adrien Ballinger have now been snapchatting under the Everestnofilter account for nearly two months. After much thought and deliberation they saw Tuesday (May 24) as the correct time to start their final summit push. Neither of these very accomplished climbers have reached the summit of 29,029' without supplemental oxygen, something that less than 3% of Everest climbers attempt.
