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. Underneath the fixed-grip double lies a veritable playground of natural kickers, transitions, jibs, and cliffs, and 12 years later, it's just as fun for Sage to shred as it was on day one, when he was hitting gaps in between washing dishes at the Peruvian Lodge.

Since 2001, Sage has called the slopes of Alta home and it is the jumps, gullies, and consistent powder found off the Wildcat Chairlift that makes this area so special to him. Despite traveling and skiing all over the world, Sage always returns to his magic place, where he is able to revel in the comradery that takes place under the Wildcat.

this gets me fired up!

How Windells Ski Camp helped Dash Longe make Skiing Cool Again

Dash Longe photo  Back in the ‘90s, Dash Longe, 32, didn’t think he looked all that hot in his Spyder ski jacket and rear-entry ski boots. His twin brother, Hunter—can we just pause to appreciate both their names for a second—was a snowboarder and had the “cooler” gear: the Wave Rave clothes and Airwalk boots. And so did most of Dash’s friends. So why didn’t Dash jump ship? He had a mission, and that mission was to make skiing cool again. Enter TGR's 2017 Grom Comp Contest Presented by

This new partnership with Matt Sterbenz, 4FRNT’s owner, has raised a lot of questions about what this will mean for the two companies and for skiing as a whole. This Blister podcast interviews Levinthal and Sterbenz firsthand to get their take on the deal, and
