View this post on Instagram

@altaskiarea is for scoochin’ !! This is getting down to the crux!! So hyped for this one!! Ciochetti’s ribbon on the Devils Castle at Alta has been on my hit list forever! Thanks to @wildwildwasatch for coming along and for the belays!!! I was worried I wouldn’t find a partner at first. @croshanemedia said he would go if absolutely no one else would haha I could tell he was pretty pumped that @wildwildwasatch said yes! Cro was just as hyped to wake up at 2am with us and film it long lens and shoot photos of our descent.! thx boys! And thanks to @straightchuter for putting together the chuting gallery! It’s been a wild ride so far!! @rossignol @rossignolfreeride @discrete @girosnow @traegergrills. #scoochersgonnascoooch . . . . #snowboarding #splitboarding #alta #lcc #slc #utah #snow #mountains #mountaineering #sketch #rei #alta #youwont #scary #extreme #gnarly #dontreadmyhashtagsbitch #skiing #climbing

Knuckledraggers at my Alta?! What’s the world coming to? At this rate we’ll have André instead of Dom Perignon in the Yellowstone Club’s refreshment huts next year! Anti-snowboarder rules notwithstanding, this line would be impressive regardless of the number of waxy planks strapped to your feet. Alta might be closed, but a 626” season means that there’s still plenty of snow up high. And up high is where these guys went, snaking their way through bands of cliffs around the Chuting Gallery. It’s worth noting that despite Alta’s generally unwelcoming attitude towards snowboarders, whoever runs their corporate Instagram account liked the above post.

Undoubtedly a terrifying line, especially at the tight crux pictured in the first Instagram video. There appears to be a foot-wide ribbon of snow on a high-angle bench above massive exposure. Luckily, the team placed gear for protection in case of a fall.

Props to the intrepid adventurers, but we’ll look elsewhere for our late-season turns.

The spine doctor is at it again! We can’t get enough of these POV clips from Travis Rice. Who could forget his iconic King Kong Line earlier this winter? Travis is always looking at the mountain with a unique, refreshing perspective. He sets out to ride “the unrideable.” For most, this particular line would require some serious survival riding, but not for TRice. He even tosses in a shifty on the way down, nailing the line with style and ease. Check it out for yourself!  RELATED: Video:

Human Powered: Uphill Endurance meets Freeriding in Red Bull Raid

Every freeride competition seems to start a little like this: 3-2-1—dropping! Not Red Bull Raid. Instead, things go a bit more like 3-2-1—start skinning. Before competitors can even think about hitting cliffs or stomping tricks on their line, they have to first reach it. Finding the blend between endurance racing and big mountain riding, Red Bull Raid is a unique human-powered approach to traditional freeriding events. It’s the same old gnarly skiing and snowboarding, just with a bit
