Sage’s Early Years, Going off on Utah’s Pyramid Gap

It was the early 2000’s and Sage Cattabriga-Alosa was just a kid — working as a dishwasher in Utah — and all he wanted to do was ski.

Close range helicopter tracking shots were pretty cutting edge in skiing and snowboarding at the time, and TGR was testing them out at the Pyramid Gap in Utah’s backcountry. Local boys, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and the Collins brothers were there and were excited about the filming concept and on hitting the 90 foot gap.

Sage absolutely crushed. That’s when Todd, Steve, and the rest of the world really learned how bad ass Sage was.

Nick McNutt Shows How To Effortlessly Slay BC Pow

As skiing has evolved, so too have the styles of the riders we admire. The frenetic skiing favored by guys like Glen Plake decades ago has evolved into a smoother, almost hypnotic style that features in the films of present day, and perhaps no skier makes it all look as easy or as smooth Nick McNutt. Check out his segment from TGR's new ski and snowboard film Rogue Elements, and marvel at how effortlessly McNutt rips through BC pillow lines and hucks laid out corks off backcountry hits. The
