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

FWT Skier Wadeck Gorak Goes Full Send

FWT Skier Wadeck Gorak Goes Full Send

Many skiers, when encountering a massive cliff blocking the entrance to their line of choice, will opt to bring a rope and rappel. 29-year-old French Freeride World Tour skier Wadeck Gorak decided to forego the hassle and go full send, hucking a massive air into a corn-filled couloir. He doesn’t seem to mind the rocks everywhere in the landing, either.

Jesper Tjäder’s POV Forest Pumptrack Is Back Again

Sweden’s Jesper Tjäder is a master of the strange. Known for feats like hitting a full loop switch, gapping massive jumps, and a creative forest pumptrack at his home mountain of Åre, Sweden, Tjäder’s skiing is never boring. RELATED: World's First Switch Full Loop at Audi Nines Speaking of that pumptrack, he spent some time rebuilding last year’s line with his friends, adding in some more spice in the form of creek gaps, tree grinds and big air.

Gnarliest Yard Sale Goes to Freeskier Sofia Wikström

Yikes.  Sofia Wikström took quite the tumble trying to stomp her line in the Scandinavian Big Mountain championships. 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.
