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.

Featured Athletes:

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

These Skiing Robots are a Bunch of Jerrys

While the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang is in full swing, South Korea is also hosting the world’s first robot ski tournament.  “Edge of Robot: Ski Robot Challenge,” featured 8 teams from local universities and tech companies. Despite their heinous performances, Kim Dong-Uk–the event organizer–said, “I think robots will have their own Winter Games on the sidelines of the Olympics held by humans.” Mr. Dong-Uk can dream all he likes, but right now he should worry about the fact that his

How Angel Collinson Returned From a Torn ACL to Slay Alaskan Lines

There are aren't many skiers walking this Earth–male or female–with the talent, moxie and that Angel Collinson has. There's a reason she's the first and only woman to win Line of the Year award. She tackles Alaskan lines that most of her contemporaries would balk at, and does it all with an omnipresent smile on her face.  But, even when you're one of the best big-mountain skiers on the planet, mistakes happen. And unfortunately, when you're on near-vertical Alaskan spines, the consequences
