This season Utah has had the worst snow year since '76, with that in mind Nate Cahoon, Leo Ahrens and Sam Cohen made the long trip up to Girdwood, Alaska, to check out the amazing Chugach Mountains.

Of course that’s far from pocket change, but by ski resort standards, it’s a pretty sweet deal. The resort is
I’m not gonna lie, when I was speaking with Nic Alegre about his career in action, environment, and lifestyle photography, I about cuffed him to the table, forcing him to hand me his life. Weird, maybe; warranted, yes. The dude travels the globe alongside elite athletes, photographing their almost annoying beautifulness. Rest assured, I held myself together. Alegre’s not chained up. Instead, he’s kicking it in New York, recouping after a whirlwind year, a large part of which he spent
