Nick McNutt Loses $100,000 by one Vote, Lands Spot on TGR Roster Instead

Nick McNutt joined the TGR team full time the year after his standout submission to the Co-Lab contest, where he came within one vote of winning $100,000. His massive switch landings in deep powder and undeniable style got him second place in the contest, and a permanent spot on TGR’s roster.

RELATED: 5 days until the premiere of TGR's new film Tight Loose. Watch the trailer and get tickets here.

The next season, he filmed in Revelstoke for Almost Ablaze and his stellar performance in the segment won the Whistler-based skier Rookie of the Year. It was very proud moment for TGR, indeed.

Watch the full segment here.

About TGR's Top 21 Moments:

This year, TGR turns 21 years old. To celebrate, we're resurfacing TGR founders, Todd and Steve Jones', favorite moments from filming over the last 21 years—the moments that made TGR what is is today. One video a day until the world premiere of our new film "Tight Loose" on September 17 in Jackson, Wyoming.

Check out McNutt’s famous Co-Lab video submission:

Even though he secured the second place, I do feel so sorry for him as he lost the first place only by one vote. I know that feeling of losing a spot just by a small margin. It feels like you are almost there but still so far.

This should be music to the ears of all the New Englanders out there. NFL superstar Rob Gronkowski is joining the Pit Viper Experts Only Pro Team. Even TGR co-founder Todd Jones is stoked about it, saying, “As New Englanders, we watched Gronk help us win multiple Super Bowls. It's good to see him out west getting loose with the Pit Viper crew. Hopefully, next time he will come to Jackson and let us show him around the home lab.” From Pit Viper: Over a weekend in March, the Gronkowski family

Ouch. It’s one thing to be skiing and riding as aggressively as the athletes on the Freeride World Tour, and it’s an entirely different thing to be crashing as hard as they (sometimes) do. Competing at the highest level leaves very little margin for error, and that’s pretty clear if you watch some of the bails from the 2021 Tour. There’s everything from 60-0 in a matter of inches (shoutout Aymar Navarro and that snowbank) to folks going SPLAT off gigantic airs (shoutout everyone else). Hope

Leave it to the French to be dramatic about this kind of stuff… No really, Hugo Manhes’s project “Un Skier en Feu” (A Skier on Fire) is a stark and important visualization of climate change and its impact on how we play in the mountains. Sure, statistics like the fact that the snowpack on France’s Porte Pass has decreased by 40 percent in three decades, the average winter temperature increasing by a full degree, and many more might get the attention of some, but at this point maybe we do need
