Remembering Groundbreaking Ski Mountaineer Hilaree Nelson

The mountain sports community was shaken to the ground after learning the tragic news that ski mountaineering icon Hilaree Nelson died earlier this week in a ski accident on Manaslu. The Telluride, Colorado local was more than just a skier – as a mother of two, she brought her leadership and compassionate energy everywhere she went…and that was a lot of places. She was the real-life superhero we needed who truly was a pioneer and leader in the outdoor space, with incredible achievements in the mountains. Nelson inspired all of us with her ambition to always chase her dreams, and that impact can be felt by all of those she encountered and inspired. TGR is devastated by her loss and will remember her forever. Our thoughts are with her family, her partner Jim Morrison, and all her friends who will carry her legacy on. Below is a short collection of thoughts and reflections from members of the TGR family and her community.

TGR Tested Quick Hit: Helly Hansen Ridge Infinity Shell Kit

The Ridge Infinity kit is a durable freeride kit for ripping no matter the conditions. | Helly Hansen photo. Freeride skiing takes a toll on your gear – your skis, boots, and outerwear need to hold up to abuse season over season. As much as I love lightweight gear, reality is, an ultralight touring outerwear kit just isn’t going to cut it for mobbing around in and out of bounds. Helly Hansen’s solution comes in the form of the smartly designed Ridge Infinity Shell jacket and pants, and
