Chamonix had a somewhat strange season this year, with unseasonably hot weather in April followed by massive snowstorms in May. For weeks, locals were concerned about their favorite lines not coming into shape this year, but that all seems to have changed. Check out this rowdy clip from FWT champion and Cham local Leo Slemett teaming up with fellow local and IFMGA guide Ross Hewitt on a descent of a classic line off the Aiguille du Midi. Nothing like scaring yourself silly before skiing up to the mid-station hut and enjoying a beer!

Exactly two years ago, on July 22, 2018, Polish ski mountaineer Andrzej Bargiel made history by becoming the first person to ski off the summit of K2. We’ve seen photos and short video clips from the adventure, but we’ve had to wait until today to finally see the full film and story of the first descent. It took Bargiel over 60 hours of solo climbing to reach the summit (sans supplemental oxygen) before he clicked into his skis and linked turns the whole way down. The feat put him on the map
Sometimes it comes in the form of a photograph, a chance encounter on a chairlift, or a glimpse at a mountain never seen before. When combined with motivation, the spark of inspiration becomes a dream, and when pursued gives our lives a new purpose. For 25 years TGR has focused on turning into reality, from exploring powder stashes in our backyard playground to first descents on unnamed peaks, the ethos of “live the dream” has defined our adventures.
