2018 Editor’s Picks: Ski

Ski video's are TGR's bread and butter, so it was tough choosing just five to aggregate as our editor's picks.  However, we did it for you, dear reader.  Enjoy!


1: Mob of Skiers in Snowbird Pow Frenzy

Watch the frenzy here:

Watch Mineral Basin go from entirely untracked to tracked out in a matter of seconds after ski patrol drops the rope at Snowbird.  The whole thing seems pretty sketchy to me, but I guess it's worth it for a few powder turns.  


2: Kai Jones

See Kai Jones throw it down here.

Whatchu know 'bout Kai Jones?  Kid slays, so it's no surprise that he made the editor's pick list.  Keep your eye on him because he's on the come up. Watch his full segment here.


3: Pow-Pocalypse Part 2

Witness the Pow-Pocalypse here

In the same vein as pick number one, this video documents a likely-dangerous flood of skiers and riders duking it out for first tracks at Alpine Meadows.  


4: Candide's Quattro 2

Watch the ski god here.

You knew it was coming.  What self-respecting list of ski videos could omit the great Candide Thovex?  In case you've been hiding under a rock for the past year or so, this video is b-a-n-a-n-a-s.


5: Mickael Bimboes FWT Canyon Gap

Watch the canyon gap here.

As you might surmise from the thumbnail, this gap is so big that Mickael needs to adopt a ski-jumping posture.  However, he does it so casually that it's easy to miss.  Watch the video a few times and you'll get a sense of just how ridiculous his line is.

Whistler Got 151 Inches of Snow in December, Check Out the Action

It’s been a historically white December in Whistler, so white in fact that the 151 inches of snow that fell last month have beaten out the previous record of 149 inches that fell in 1994. Whistler Blackcomb spokesman Marc Riddell had this to say about Snowcember: “It was a phenomenal holiday period and we’ve got a great base to start the season, particularly given the snow we’ve had in the first days of January.” He added, “It took some time to arrive this season, but it’s not letting
