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.

The Army’s Most Famous Band of Skiing Soldiers

The Army’s Most Famous Band of Skiing Soldiers

The ski troops of the 10th Mountain Division endured incredibly brutal combat in World War II, battling frostbite and hostile alpine environments during their short but violent campaign against German forces in Italy’s Apennine Mountains. Casualties in the winter of 1945 were staggering, but when the ski troops returned home they poured their heart and soul into the newly-evolving ski industry, opening ski resorts, managing ski schools and influencing innovation. Unlike most of Europe, prior
