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.

Get Hyped for Winter with Todd Ligare’s AK Edit

It snowed an inch last night, and we’d be lying if we said skiing wasn’t on the brain. Thankfully, Todd Ligare’s newest AK edit is the perfect thing to hold us over until the lifts start spinning. It’s a no-frills kind of edit, with Sierra Nevada athlete Todd Ligare going full throttle on one Alaskan spine after the next. Hot damn, Ligare, what did you have for breakfast that day? Jet fuel?

Must Watch: Tanner Hall’s ‘Eternal’

The Ski Boss is back. I repeat: The Ski Boss is back. Tanner Hall has a habit of dropping unannounced edits, and his latest one is absolute fire.
