Dad of the Year Builds Backyard Chairlift and Slope

With the early closures of ski resorts, a lot of family vacations have been ruined. In response, we can do two things. Option A: be sad. Or there’s option B: transform your backyard into your own personal ski resort. As this crafty dad shows, all you need is some rope, a camp chair, white carpet, and fearless children. Heck, I’m a grown adult and I’d be down to give that solo chair a whirl. Let me guess, that run is probably rated a blue square, right? The Austrian folk music is also a nice touch, I sure hope there's fresh Kaiserschmarrn at the top.

It may not be the fresh corduroy you were hoping for, but at least you’re outside having fun with the kids. That’s the least we can do during these strange times.

Here's a clip of the SSX trick that he's imitating:

Remember that grom segment from Faction’s The one where a little tiny Henry Sildaru chases none other than Candide Thovex around La Clusaz? Yeah, it’s probably one of the rowdiest grom segments ever shot and Faction just re-released the whole seggy online for you to watch.

This All-Female Ski/Sailing Trip To Greenland Was Forced To Reckon With COVID-19

Sometimes you just have to go with the flow. When an all-female ski expedition that included TGR Tested rider Ilka Hadlock and some of the strongest and most badass ladies in skiing (Mary Mcintyre, Corinne Prevot, Keree Smith, Leona Charpentier, Julia Olsen, and Camilla Edwards) set sail from Iceland to Greenland this March, they had no idea what would be in store for them. On an expedition like this, pretty much anything could go wrong, but what eventually derailed their effort was
