Sam Smoothy Launches Massive Front flip & Lands Impossible Crash

You probably recognize Sam Smoothy from his winning run at Vallnord Arcalis during last year's Freeride World Tour. The New Zealand skier made an impossible link up in mediocre snow conditions. Naturally we at TGR knew that we had to get this kid up to Alaska. 

Sam left all of his hesitations and fear in the southern Hemisphere, launching a massive front flip, crashing hard, and somehow skiing out of another crash later in the trip. He instantly gained the respect of TGR athletes Angel Collinson, Nick McNutt, and Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, a fairly formidable trio.

Well, not Tim Durtschi, who can find the humor in anything and has more than his fair share of moments creatively goofing off in the backcountry. Check out the next episode of Rogue Beings, an inside look at the amazing athletes behind our film Rogue Elements.

Ever Wonder How Dane Tudor Shreds Pow So Hard?

Ever Wonder How Dane Tudor Shreds Pow So Hard?

It’s no secret that to sustain a career as professional skier, you have to put in the off-season training hours. That doesn't just mean going to South America for a few weeks or riding your bike once the trails dry up, but it means hitting the gym and using every chance you can get to gain strength for the winter. Scott multisport athlete Dane Tudor spends much of his winter on huge backcountry ski missions with the TGR crew, but his off-season is anything but “off”. He is busy putting in
