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!

Elyse was surfing, I was mopping up something not even the most savage of savages should be subjected to, and my years-long wish

Wilderness First Responder: What It’s Like To Use It

I didn't notice that Jen was in this photo at the time that it was taken. If I had, maybe things would’ve played out differently.  On July 2nd, I woke up at 4a.m. in my hammock. I packed up my sleeping bag and quietly tossed it into my already loaded 4Runner, doing my best not to wake anyone else up. A few friends and I had been camping in the Popo Agie Wilderness outside of Lander, Wyoming near the Wind River Range. By 11a.m. I was putting on my snowboard boots on the side of the road on
