Nick McNutt Finds Redemption After Alaskan Avalanche

Nick McNutt joined the TGR team after his standout submission in the Co-Lab contest. His massive switch landings in deep powder and unique style peaked the interest of TGR co-founders Todd and Steve Jones. He cemented his ability in Almost Ablaze and now three years later McNutt has more than earned a permanent roster spot with TGR.

This winter we sent McNutt to Alaska, the ultimate proving ground for any skier. An early slide humbled Nick about the raw power of these mountains, but he came back more focused than ever, piecing together a segment that was among the year's best.

When big mountain skiers and snowboarders Jeremie Heitz, Nico Vuignier, Sam Anthamatten, Laurent DeMartin, Florian Bruchez, and Mathieu Schaer get together, you know it’s going to be wild. What we didn’t expect, however, was filmmaker and skier Nico Vuignier’s take on the matter. Imagine this: turn out all the lights, light up the sky with a huge fireball, and then shred hairy big mountain lines like there’s no tomorrow.

Slovakian World Cup skier Andreas Zampa took an unlikely route to the lead at Adelboden on Sunday.  Ignoring the conventional wisdom which dictates that staying upright on your skis is the best way to end a race, he took a fall right before the finish and slid over the line on his side.   Related: The Freeride World Tour Kicks Off in Hakuba This Week Despite crashing, he took the lead with that run, but did not manage to finish his second, unfortunately preventing him from reaping the
