POV: Skier Gets Caught in Utah Avalanche

Editor's Note: TGR understands the inherent risks with winter backcountry activity and urges anyone going out to have the proper knowledge, equipment, a partner, and a plan. For more information on how to stay safe in the backcountry, check out TGR’s annual Safety Week series.

Earlier this week, a skier was caught in an avalanche on an east-facing slope on Guardsman Pass in the Wasatch. The Utah Avalanche Center posted a POV video from the skier’s helmet cam showing how he tried to air into bowl that ended up triggering a slide. Luckily, his ski was visible and friends were able to dig him out in under a minute.

The avalanche failed on loose, faceted snow beneath a large amount of storm snow. According to the video, the group was carrying proper rescue gear including a beacon, shovel, and probe on each group member, but was able to un-bury their friend using just a visual search and their hands. The skier was uninjured.

Check Out Red Bull’s Full Film About the K2 Ski Descent

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

VIDEO: Hotlaps at Mt. Hood with Skiing’s Finest

After a few months of severely limited skiing opportunities, it's no surprise that professional American freeskiers descended en masse on Mt. Hood's newly-reopened terrain park during July. The star-studded list of attendees included (but was not limited to) Torin Yater-Wallace, Quinn Wolferman, Tom Wallisch, Colby Stevenson, Birk Irving, Trevor Kennison, Cody Wilder Ray, and Cody LaPlante.
