ESPN Launches Competition to Find Best Big Mountain Ski Resort

ESPN just launched a competition to determine which North American ski resort has the best terrain. Similar to their other "Real" contest in ski and snowboard categories, this will pit seven iconic resorts against each other. The rules are actually pretty awesome, something every core skier and snowboarder can get behind. All of the footage in these videos had to be shot over the 2016/17 winter season and exclusively feature resort-sponsored athletes who ski and ride each resort on a regular basis. Only natural terrain features were allowed (no snowcat-made kickers), and all footage is of places you can get to from the top of a lift.

We have some classic spots battling it out including our home mountain of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. We may be partial to our backyard hill but there are plenty of rad shred destinations to vote for. 

Voting ends at 9 a.m. PT on Monday, November 13.

This is one of the best articles I have come across. Keep up the good work. Tweakbox Download for iOS

Those spots are so great I would like to skiing there myself.

After an absolutely epic winter season, skiing big lines all over the Tetons and winning the U12 North American IFSA Junior Freeride Tour, 12-year-old Kai Jones was nowhere near done. Peeking out the car window on a roadtrip with his family, Kai noticed some sand dunes in the distance, and decided to go explore them, skis in tow. Kai Jones would also like to remind all groms to enter the 2018 TGR Grom Contest The St. Anthony Sand Dunes, situated in Idaho just west of the Tetons, offered

​Tim Durtschi, Owen Leeper, and Co. Send Beartooth’s Road Gap

Tim Durtschi and friends Owen Leeper, Sasha Motivala, and Amon Barker went up to Beartooth Basin this weekend and celebrated summer skiing with a good ol’ road gap, right over the Beartooth Highway. Some bystanders were so amused they stopped to take out their cameras and film the guys, including a news reporter. If you don't know this crew and their skiing abilities, the surprise and shock of turning a corner of the pass to see them flying over the highway and landing in the snow on
