Q&A: Relive Alaska with Angel, Nick, and Griffin

This time of year usually means migration for the most dedicated skiers. It’s the season to pack all of your things into your truck bed and beeline it North to Alaska. It’s the epitome of a big mountain skier's paradise, and the only thing more endless than the mountains are all the lines you can ski. For obvious reasons, there’s not much AK heli-skiing happening these days—even for the pros like Angel Collinson, Griffin Post, and Nick McNutt. Nothing will replace rotor snow spray and that puckered feeling at the top of a line, but our athletes have the next best thing. Collinson, McNutt, and Post recently sat down for an exclusive Q&A about their trip to Palmer, Alaska as seen in TGR’s Winterland.

They talked about everything from exploring the Northern Chugach to weighing risk and reward with big mountain skiing. If you’ve ever wanted to better understand the inner workings of a big mountain skier's brain, then you don’t want to miss this.

Different things drive us into the mountains. For some, it’s a desire to escape. For others, it’s a desire to explore and push the limits. For some though, it’s about connecting with themselves in a way nothing else can provide. For two Navy SEALs, an attempt to traverse the entirety of Colorado’s Sangre de Cristo Range was a moment of reflection and connection with two fallen friends.

Remember that grom segment from Faction’s The one where a little tiny Henry Sildaru chases none other than Candide Thovex around La Clusaz? Yeah, it’s probably one of the rowdiest grom segments ever shot and Faction just re-released the whole seggy online for you to watch.

Aiguille Du Midi Tram Installs Infrared Cameras To Screen For COVID-19

After a two-month shutdown during the peak of spring ski season, Chamonix’s Aiguille du Midi tram re-opened this past weekend, much to the excitement of local skiers and climbers looking to get deep into the Mont Blanc Massif. While Tof Henry and co. shredding big lines might have taken the first headlines, there was some other news beneath the surface that is worth talking about. In order to screen guests on the Telepherique, the infamous tram that rises over 9000 feet from the valley
