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.

There are few skiers in the industry that have been as influential as the soft-spoken, pow-slaying, ski design mastermind that is Chris Benchetler. 10 years ago, he was first presented with the opportunity to design and build a pro-model ski for Atomic. Since then the ski has taken on several new forms, but the basic design (a fat, playful twintip pow ski inspired by Benchetler’s desire to surf and butter down mountains) has never changed. The action sports world is full of parallels, and
Once again, Aymar Navarro manages to blow our minds with his ability to find yet another super sick line in South America, and absolutely style it. This time, Navarro and filmmaker Txema Trull send it down the Punta Balcón on Chile’s Cajón del Maipo. While we know that music was added after the fact, it’s almost as if Navarro and Trull are truly dancing their way down the never-ending line. Nice work! RELATED: Aymar Navarro Rips the Real C
