K2 Skier Wants to Ski Everest Next

Andrzej Bargiel, the Polish ski mountaineer who made history in 2018 by becoming the first person to ski off the summit of K2, just announced plans to ski Everest without oxygen. The world’s highest peak has been skied several times before, but never continuously or without supplemental oxygen. In an interview with Red Bull, he announced his intentions to climb and ski the peak this fall.

While most climbers attempt Everest in the spring, when the weather is drier, fall is the preferred time to ski big peaks like this, as conditions tend to be snowier and thus more conducive to skiing. Secondly, Bargiel states it will be safer as there will not be crowds on the mountain like seen earlier this year, saying “[In fall], there are not many people there and it is fun. Now we associate Everest with queues, there are lots of people who are trying to reach this peak. Crowds are a big threat, because I could throw an avalanche on people. Besides, I'm looking for peace in the mountains.”

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

We might not have seen as much of Joss Christensen since he won Olympic gold in Slopestyle at Sochi, but that's not because he's given up on skiing. In fact, he's been busy working on one of the coolest websites to grace the ski world in a while: SLVSH. In addition to sharing ski edits like this, SLVSH produces videos that are essentially the ski equivalent of a game of S.K.A.T.E. or P.I.G, in which skiers go trick-for-trick. Joss has taken the well-established format and pushed it to a new

The TGR Crew Gets Rowdy on Alaskan Spines

Every year, just as the ski season is winding down in the lower 48, TGR heads north in search of fresh snow and big lines. This year, we sent Angel Collinson, Nick McNutt, Griffin Post, and Elyse Saugstad up to Palmer, Alaska to do some heli-skiing in the Chugach Mountains. For those unaware, the Chugach are located in southern Alaska, the northernmost of the Pacific Coast Ranges, a cordillera running all the way down to the Sierra Madre in Northwestern Mexico.  RELATED: Exploring Norway's
