TGR Legend Kent Kreitler is on the Powell Movement

TGR Hall of Fame athlete Kent Kreitler is a living legend. He’ll be remembered as the skier who first helped bring tricks to the backcountry, but he is so much more than that. He was part of an elite crew of skiers that pioneered big mountain skiing in Alaska…the generation that lived fast and took chances. Just a few years ago, he was inducted in the TGR Hall of Fame for his many parts in films over the years. In part one of his podcast on the Powell Movement, Mike Powell talks with Kreitler about moving to Idaho at 10 from New Jersey, skiing in South America, winning the US Extremes, McConkey, Coombs, and much more. Oh yeah, and like Mike says, be sure to check out Kreitler's classic film parts with a TGR Premium subscription today!
