Sony Adds Tim Durtschi to Action Cam Team

Tim Durtschi has been pushing the frontier of backcountry freestyle longer that almost anyone out there. From his groundbreaking switch skiing in 44 Days to his double cork over Chad's Gap in 2010 to his podiums at Red Bull Linecatcher, Tim has been able to successfully meld two genres of skiing - freestyle and big mountain - like few others. His career didn't slow down this past year at all, either, as his closing segment in Way Of Life won him a Best Male Performance from the Powder Video Awards. From AK to Austria and back, Tim showed his genius in freestyle-able terrain as much as in no-fall straight-line chutes.

Far Out Places: Crested Butte and the Elk Mountains

For TGR's upcoming snow film –presented by REI–we set out with a simple goal to shoot our segments in ways that were outside the norm. That goal brought us out to Crested Butte, Colorado where we teamed up with our longtime collaborator Clayton Vila to put together a part that merged park and street influences with the always stellar Sean Jordan.
