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

Real Skifi Tries 21 Tricks on the Same Rail

Real Skifi Tries 21 Tricks on the Same Rail

The Real Skifi crew put the creativity back into skiing. In an era of competition slopestyle runs that look like Olympic aerials skiing, the crew of Finnish misfits give skiing a breath of fresh air. This time, the guys try 21 different tricks on the same handrail. Oh, and did we mention theres no snow in sight, and the handrail leads straight into a river? Looks like a great way too cool off to us.

Chris Benchetler Celebrates 10 Years of the Atomic Bent Chetler Ski

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
