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.

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.

We'll start with a quick refresh on skiing etiquette: Downhill skiers have the right of way.

Throwback: The Longest Ski Jump in History

In terms of humans flying through the air at high velocity with little to nothing in the way of safety equipment, ski jumping is unparalleled.
