Great Days 16: At Home with Sage Cattabriga-Alosa

Editor's Note: In this Smith Optics Great Days edit, hosted exclusively here on Tetongravity.com, TGR veteran Sage Cattabriga-Alosa goes back to the chairlift that he's called home since 2001: Alta's Wildcat double chair.

But getting to ski with the likes of Max Hammer, Colter

Caroline Gleich On What It Took to Complete 90 of Utah’s Gnarliest Ski Descents

Ski mountaineer Caroline Gleich recently checked off descent #90 of Andrew McLean’s the Chuting Gallery, marking her completion of a list of some of the gnarliest skiing in North America. For most, a list of potential climbs or descents opens up a world of possibilities, giving much-needed beta on faraway, unfamiliar areas. For others, guidebooks represent

THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE RON

THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE RON
