Columbia Presents T-Bar Film’s “Vasu Sojitra Out On A Limb”

Vasu Sojitra does something few people can do, ski the backcountry with one leg. He lost his right leg to a blood infection at 9 months old. But rather than letting his disability define him,Vasu has always treated his amputation as a mere hiccup in life. Columbia presents T-Bar Film's "Out on a Limb", a film that profiles Vasu's inspiring story and follows him as he ventures deeper into the backcountry to summit peaks, drop into avalanche zones, send cliffs, and ski deep powder lines–all completely unassisted.This film gained international recognition as a finalist in the Banff Mountain Film Festival and as winner of the Winter Wildlands Backcountry Film Festival. Teton Gravity Research is proud to be exclusively premiering "Out On A Limb" today on our website.


Go behind the scenes of "Out On A Limb" with an exclusive interview with Vasu Sojitra & director Tyler Wilkinson-Ray.

Learn more about Vasu, enjoy a recap of his recent submit of the Grand Teton, the first by an adaptive athlete with crutches. 

Check out the original trailer to "Out On A Limb" presented by Columbia.

Like the gear Vasu is rocking! Get your all the gear you need from Columbia for the fast approaching winter!

This guy is a badass!

Wow! The VT footage is insane

Flippin’ A. Having suffered a spinal cord injury, and come back to skiing, and being pretty happy with the level I’ve been able to get to, it’s mind-blowing watching Vasu have the stamina and flow on bump lines and chutes like he does in this film. Respect.

    Seriously - the control and strength to flow through turns like that is super impressive. Hope to see more from Vasu!

Looking for Powder? The Sierra and PNW Will Score Multiple Feet This Week

Looking for Powder? The Sierra and PNW Will Score Multiple Feet This Week

The west has featured decent high elevation snow this season, with spots like Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee having solid snow coverage, but in general, the early season hasn't been great to the western U.S. In fact, if you were to compare the annual snowfall at Squaw (80 inches YTD) versus Jay Peak in Vermont (185 inches YTD) you might think you were living in an opposite reality.  But, fear not, all you West Coast skers and snowboarders, because the flood gates should open this week

Whistler is about to SCORE; 57 inches possible through Monday

As we've written about–and as you're probably aware if you fancy yourself much of a skier or snowboarder–much of North America has had a pretty abysmal start to the ski season so far. One place that hasn't had a poor start, however, is Whistler Blackcomb up in British Columbia. And as the saying goes, apparently the rich get richer because a massive storm is rolling into the Whistler region that will potentially drop 57 inches of fresh snow by Tuesday morning, according to snow-forecast.com

How Sego Ski Co. is Taking Over the Ski World

How Sego Ski Co. is Taking Over the Ski World

Four years ago, Peter Wells came to his brother with an idea: “Let’s start a ski company.” They wrote a business plan, got the money together and put the pedal to the metal. “It takes time to build a brand and get our store out there, and for people to accept a new brand,” Tim Wells told TGR. “But we’re doing it.” The ski industry is changing, and Sego Ski Co. is ready to take advantage of it. Sego is poised for wild growth in a changing industry: In just four seasons they’ve gone from
