Billabong Magic

TGR recently hosted the Billabong Team and Ian and Luke Walsh for 5 days of epic Jackson Hole riding.  The Billabong crew consisted of Shane Dorian, Tara Dakides, Bucky Lasek, Graham Stapelberg, Enich, and Andrew. Jason Ford from Future Snowboard Magazine also flew in to his old stomping ground to join us. This was the third year in a row the surf posse has completely scored in Jackson Hole. Day one was a brief lull in the unbelievable storm that has been on top of us since December 18th, so we called the boys at High Mountain Heli and slotted ourselves for the day.  It proved to be a perfect warm-up day for the crew. The next day we woke to 14' of fresh pow and Jackson Hole was at its finest. Total snowfall for the 5 days the boys were here was over 4 ft. The level of riding these guys have achieved through these annual trips is unbelievable.  Everyone scored multiple faceshots and was completely spent by the time the planes left Jackson.

Give your kids the right name and they're bound to become pros . . .

I give up. I admit defeat. After twenty-two years I realize that my dream of becoming a pro skier is over. Never will I grace the cover of Powder Mag and you will definitely not see me in a segment of Almost Ablaze. That’s fine—life has other plans for me. As I reflect back on why this happened I have to place the blame on two people: my mom and dad. Not because they didn’t sign me up for ski school or drive me up to the mountains of New England each winter, but because they named me

What it Takes to Be the Fastest Ski Gang in Aspen

What it Takes to Be the Fastest Ski Gang in Aspen

What started as a few 10-year old Aspen ski racers toying around and causing no good in their little ski gang deemed ‘The Stallions,’ would later evolve into a 15-member crew of ripping skiers. The group's name would change to something more representative of their ideals, a name set in place to pay homage to the late Hunter S. Thompson and his adopted slogan while running for Sheriff of Aspen and Pitkin County–“Freak Power.” While the esteemed journalist would lose the election he
