Tim Durtschi - My Way Of Life

Watch Way Of Life for free 2/19 — 2/25: https://www.tetongravity.com/films/way-of-life/watch/

About Way Of Life:

For some, embracing the mountains is not just part of life—it's a way of life. The search for snow shapes not only how they approach these peaks, but also how they approach the world. And whether athletes spend their days dropping first descents in Alaska, lapping the local mountain, or training for the Olympics, they're part of a community built around a shared passion. The bonds that form from this community transcend continents and cultures, transforming strangers into friends. After all, a smile on a powder day needs no translation.

Shot on location in 2013, Teton Gravity Research's Way of Life takes you on a journey to the mountains and inside the minds of today's top athletes. With stunning imagery created with GSS, Red Cinema, and the Sony Action Cam, this film explores the origins of skiing in Austria, the search for original lines in Alaska, and the U.S. Freeskiing Team's quest for Olympic gold. The adventure also leads athletes to the rugged terrain of Jackson Hole and the Tetons, as well as the backcountry of British Columbia. Regardless of the terrain they ride, the athletes featured in Way of Life push the boundaries of what's possible. This journey takes them across the globe as they form a brotherhood that needs no language.

Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Tim Durtschi, Sammy Carlson, Dash Longe, Dana Flahr, Todd Ligare, Griffin Post, Angel Collison, Ian McIntosh, Dylan Hood, John Spriggs, Colter Hinchliffe, Max Hammer, Daniel Tisi, Willie Borm, and the US Olympic Freeskiing Team

Video: Parkin Costain Chops Through Alaskan Spines

Professional big mountain skier and axe thrower, Parkin Costain, just dropped a new edit from Haines, Alaska. Chopping through spines left and right, Costain handles his own in the AK terrain like a seasoned veteran. Remember guys, he’s only 19. It’s no wonder that he had no problem keeping up with Tim Durtschi and Colter Hinchliffe in this year’s segment in Terrace, British Columbia.

Video: Real Skifi is Still The Weirdest Crew on Skis

Rollerblades, skate parks, high dives: the Real Skifi crew has it all. Well, everything except snow. Like most of us out there, they too are still waiting for the white stuff to fall. But that does not seem to faze them one bit, given that they’ve singlehandedly carved out a niche in ski film production that includes some of the most creative urban (or is it suburban) skiing we’ve seen.  RELATED: Real Skifi Tries 21 Tricks on the Same Rail Their latest episode is short, sweet, and to the

The 11-year-old shredder took home the title as the best young freeskier in North America, and this clip makes it pretty clear as to why. Check out his full segment from #TGRfarout:
