Sammy Carlson

Over the last 48 hours Sammy Carlson has logged 24 of them floating, launching, spinning and flipping in the backcountry.

We timed it perfectly, rolling into an epic zone right after a snow storm and scoring blue skies.

There were a few features that we spent some time building, but most of the stuff he hit natural.

Check it out.

Vulnerability and Friendship in the Mountains: Skiing the WURL

The Wasatch Ultimate Ridge Linkup, better known as the WURL, is not for the faint of heart.

Every so often, a storm cycle comes through Jackson Hole that is so marvelous it’s cemented in local lore. They’re the kind of weather events that crusty ski bums will tell you about after one too many shots of whiskey. They’ll get this far-off look in their eyes and exclaim, “Remember the January of 2020?” For those of you who weren’t in Jackson during that magical month last year,
