It’s no secret that to sustain a career as professional skier, you have to put in the off-season training hours. That doesn't just mean going to South America for a few weeks or riding your bike once the trails dry up, but it means hitting the gym and using every chance you can get to gain strength for the winter.

Scott multisport athlete Dane Tudor spends much of his winter on huge backcountry ski missions with the TGR crew, but his off-season is anything but “off”. He is busy putting in work at the gym, enjoying long swims across alpine lakes, and cranking out the miles on his mountain bike. To him, it's all pretty simple: no shortcuts.
