Ian McIntosh: Unexplored Alaska

Since I watched the very first TGR films when I was just a teenager it’s been a dream of mine to come to an unexplored region of AK and ski some first descents, just like the boys did back in the day. This year in Petersburg that dream came true and no words can express how stoaked I am to be a part of the TGR family as we step into a new generation of ski exploration in Alaska. Here are a couple of photo’s of the trip and some of the lines I got to be the first to ski.

My Line on Devils Thumb**This is the North face of the Devils Thumb and I was lucky enough to be the first to ski off the ridge just below the cliff face on the left of the photo.**

Looking down Devils Thumb**Looking down the line off the Devils thumb. Seth also got to shred a line down this face just after me and he ripped it. Another dream come true, shredding first descents with a hero of mine. Hell ya Morrison!**

Screen Saver

**We ended up calling this face Screen Saver simply because after I took a photo of it on our reccon flight it became my screen saver shot.**

looking down screen saver**Looking down Screen Saver.**

mono spine**We ended up calling this face Mono Spine for obvious reasons and I was the lucky one who got to ski it first.**

witches cauldron still brewing**Every morning that we flew over the Witches Cauldron it was brewing just like this. I see why it got it’s name.**

sage and the heli**Sage and the Heli**

south face of devils thumb**South face of the Devils Thumb.**

If you haven't watched the edit, give it (and much more) a gander on TGRtv today.  This has always been the plan. Compete so I can make a name for myself and build my personal brand.
