Every spring when the snow starts to melt, pants are replaced with boardies and boots with flip flops. Cameras are flown back from around the world to Wyoming. While most people are out enjoying the summer fun, we're still focused on skiing, deep in powder, spinning off cliffs. Often times we work ourselves into a late night haze. Long evenings are spent arguing over how legit a shot is or what song works best.
Throughout the summer most of the featured athletes come through the TGR edit suite to work on their segments. Dana Flahr drives down from Whistler, Erik Roner stops in a few times (I think mostly for Pica's mexican food), Dylan Hood catches a few good couch waves, and Sage never drives in without his mountain bike.

Carving turns on powerful 100mm underfoot skis is a pleasure - Atomic's brand-new Maverick 100Ti is our tool of choice. | Atomic photo. There’s a funny thing about skis: the ones with the most exciting, out-of this world design are often the ones we get to ride the least. Let’s be real, a powder day at a ski area doesn’t last long. If you’re lucky, you get a few morning runs of blissfully deep riding before the snow turns to chopped up crud, or even gets scraped off a hard underlying
The boys that are the Bunch - known for doing things a little differently - are dipping their hands into the game of making skis. | 1000 Skis photo. For those of you who have been paying attention to the weird corner of skiing that is the Bunch, you might have noticed some murmurs about Alex Hackel, Pär ‘Peyben’ Hägglund, Magnus Granér and Lucas Stål Madison switching up their ski sponsors this year. Well, the news is true, but there’s a whole lot more. The youthful skiing visionaries,
The first two things that come to mind about Ryan Hudson are that he's one of the most laid back, friendly humans I've ever met, and also one of the most interesting. After a full weekend of TGR premieres (you know how tiring that can be if you've ever been), Dark Starts, the Backcountry Splitboard Podcast rallied Ryan for a quick chat. Actually, the episode is more than two hours, but Ryan's charm and amazing life story will keep you captivated. The episode touches on how he came to love
