Colter Hinchliffe and Tim Durtschi’s Guide to International Ski Carrying

In this educational video from Teton Gravity Research, Colter Hinchliffe and Tim Durtschi instruct us in a variety of ski carrying techniques native to the Austrian Alps. While North Americans will be familiar with the classic over-the-shoulder carry technique known as The Local, they'll be less familiar with Austrian techniques such as The Offering, The Decapitator, The Oklahoma Suitcase, and The Reverse Local, which Colter and Tim demonstrate in person while documenting variances on the techniques performed by native practitioners. For more demonstrations of ski-related techniques, please refer to TGR's latest ski film, Almost Ablaze.

After Dry Spell, Argentina Gets First Pow Day of the Season

After Dry Spell, Argentina Gets First Pow Day of the Season

We’ve been following along with a few of our favorite skiers currently down in South America, and it seems like the southern end of the Andes had been experiencing a bit of a dry spell. Turns out that dry spell just ended with the first big pow day of the season in Bariloche, Argentina. While Aymar Navarro has been getting hungry searching for couloirs up north, Miles Clark managed to score big in Bariloche a few days ago. Look at the form on that tuck at the end! For now, the waiting game
