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.

Talk about crushing the game.

What Happens When Pro Big Wave Surfers Go Heli Boarding?

Skills translate across sports, don’t they? That’s exactly what Big Wave Surf champions Paige Alms and Billy Kemper set out to discover when they took a trip to Alaska’s Chugach Range to go heli-boarding. Lucky for them, pro snowboarders Robin Van Gyn and Leanne Pelosi, as well as Olympic gold medalist Julia Mancuso were there to share some knowledge. Sharing skills in the mountains is one of the best parts of being there, and these pros have a lot to share. The surfers learn and feed off the
