Sending It On Snowmachines In Girdwood, Alaska

Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Dylan Hood, Dash Longe and Tim Durtschi made the trek back to Girdwood, Alaska, to film for Teton Gravity Research's next movie, "The Dream Factory." This time the crew brought their snowmachines for a high-octane powder assualt on the mountains.

So far the crew has explored four different trailheads in the area, which have provided more than enough terrain to play on.  It's been a nice surprise to show up at the parking lot each morning to see no other cars, crews, or slednecks.  In some cases the boys have been able to access the same terrain as a heli on their snowmachines.

Nick McNutt -The Aftermath of the Faulty Transceiver Saga - LPP #189

It's been a year and a half since Nick's near fatal accident skiing pillows on a TGR shoot in March 2020. The one where he was buried and his transceiver failed. He talks about the fallout from bringing attention to the faulty device and Black Diamond's luke warm response to take accountability. He describes his experience of the nearly 6 minutes spent under the snow, the training he and his crew used to save his life as well as and the physical and mental effects that were the result of

​TGR Tested: Atomic Hawx Ultra 130

The new Atomic Hawx Ultra 130 sure is a looker - and it skis damn well too. | Atomic photo. I haven’t been one to ski a dedicated resort boot in quite a few years. With the stellar performance that crossover boots have offered recently – including Atomic’s own walk-mode boots – I just haven’t really seen the point, but testing the new Atomic Hawx Ultra 130 made me realize what I’ve been missing out on. A few inbounds days Jackson Hole confirmed my suspicions - I was blown away by how
