After spending weeks weathering storms in British Columbia, Dash Longe, Dylan Hood, Angel Collinson, and Tim Durtschi travel withSelkirk Wilderness Skiingin search of new terrain and new tricks. Their efforts to push progression, however, come with a price.During the final days of their trip, the Teton Gravity Research athletes begin sessioning a jump in the backcountry. For Longe, the jump—and the deep snow beneath it—provides the perfect canvas for trying a double flip. As snowmobiles tow the athletes to this jump, they aim to embody Longe’s mantra, “If you don’t just go for it, then you’re never going to get it done.” But as Longe demonstrates, efforts to push one’s limits can secure not just new tricks, but also new injuries.Way Of Life’s Behind the Line is a series that takes you into the minds of the TGR athletes.

At some point, something went egregiously wrong for the Swedish freeskier as she attempted this unforgiving cliff band. After tomahawking down the slope, it’s a miracle that she only walked away with a broken wrist and few scratches.
This winter has been quite the season for Spain’s Aymar Navarro, including stacking results on the Freeride World Tour, skiing huge lines all over the Alps, and skiing as much powder as possible. We all probably know him best from his South Lines web series, climbing and skiing couloirs in the southern hemisphere, all while we spend our days at the beach or on our bikes.
