Watch how Jeremy Nobis Revived Skiing in the 90s

Jeremy Nobis started out ski racing, but thanks to Todd, Steve, and the open spot on one of their helis in Alaska, he’s now respected as a pioneer of aggressive big mountain skiing.

Nobis, in all his long-haired glory, brushed off the person giving him the lowdown on sluff management, and proceeded to open the throttle, making Super G turns the whole way down the ridiculously steep face.

Todd and Steve were blown away. So was Powder magazine. They took one of his turns from that line and smacked it onto the cover of their February 1998 issue with the caption, “Jeremy Nobis: The next rock star?” It was a cover that changed the world.

Through Nobis and his run with TGR, skiing became cool.

Luckily for him, this was a record-breaking season—the perfect year to hang around Wyoming. He’s also embraced his role as Kai Jones’ mentor, passing on knowledge just as it was passed to him when he was a young up-and-comer. RELATED: TGR Winterland Tour Dates and

It’s Summer But Here’s Another Tasty POV Ski Line From Black Crows

While we’ve been enjoying the heat of summer in all sorts of forms here in the Tetons, whether it’s dusty singletrack, refreshing river runs, or solitude on some remote summit, we can’t deny getting the itch for some winter fun. Luckily, our friends over at Black Crows have a temporary scratch for that itch, with this tasty ski line from Yannick Boissenot somewhere in the mountains of France. It’s complete with everything we’ve come to expect from him: ropes, pointy sh*t, and some really
