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!

For the loved ones of the victims, however, this is never the case, the memory of the life lost will always remain. RELATED: 8 Things I
The west has featured decent high elevation snow this season, with spots like Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee having solid snow coverage, but in general, the early season hasn't been great to the western U.S. In fact, if you were to compare the annual snowfall at Squaw (80 inches YTD) versus Jay Peak in Vermont (185 inches YTD) you might think you were living in an opposite reality. But, fear not, all you West Coast skers and snowboarders, because the flood gates should open this week
Four years ago, Peter Wells came to his brother with an idea: “Let’s start a ski company.” They wrote a business plan, got the money together and put the pedal to the metal. “It takes time to build a brand and get our store out there, and for people to accept a new brand,” Tim Wells told TGR. “But we’re doing it.” The ski industry is changing, and Sego Ski Co. is ready to take advantage of it. Sego is poised for wild growth in a changing industry: In just four seasons they’ve gone from
