Drop into Sage Cattabriga-Alosa's opening segment from TGR's latest ski film, Way Of Life. This segment shows five minutes and thirty seconds of Sage flossing insane spine lines in Alaska. Sage has come a long way since he first started filming lines with TGR under the tutelage of Jeremy Nobis back in 2002, and he has without a doubt earned his place in the pages of skiing's history.
Sage crushes lines to the tune of “DTV” by Natural Child while being filmed with the most sophisticated 4K aerial cinema system in the world. But it goes without saying that Sage isn't the only talented skier in the film. Whether it's Tim Durtschi and Dash Longe bringing A-grade tricks to terrifying backcountry lines, Griffin Post and supergrom Daniel Tisi dropping jaws in our backyard in the Tetons, or the US Freeskiing Team throwing down Olympic-level park tricks in Mammoth, Way Of Life captures some of the most talented skiers in the game. If that sounds like the kind of thing that gets you stoked to hit the slopes, pick up Way of Life on iTunes for $12.99 or our DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack for $29.99. Thanks to all of our fans for another great year in the life!

This weekend, the ski community was devastated by news that Jackson’s Bryce Newcomb lost his battle with a traumatic brain injury. Newcomb was involved in a cornice collapse outside the Jackson Hole Resort's boundary in late March. For anyone who knew Newcomb, one thing always stood out: his absolutely infectious energy both on and off the mountain. He truly lived by the motto of “SEND IT,” spreading his sense of humor and stoke and convincing all those who rode with him that anything was
— D.L. Three years into my quest to find a copy of Dolores LaChapelle’s , I was finally on the cusp of unearthing the elusive tome. My search had led me to Powell’s Books, in Portland, Oregon, and as I closed in on my quarry, I felt the weight of a multi-year journey begin to lift. Out of print since 1993, was — and is — hard to find, and over the years the volume has gained legendary status as one of the best philosophical/academic examinations of powder skiing ever written. Today,
