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. 

Frontflip @1:15 Crash @2:40

It's been a bit of an up-and-down few years for John Spriggs (and for the Colorado snowpack), with Spriggs running into some sponsor trouble and trouble with the law, but nobody will ever doubt the dude's passion for skiing. RELATED: John Spriggs ain't done skiing yet This year, in spite of the pretty abysmal snowpack that was present in the Centennial State for much of the season, Spriggs managed to put together an absolute banger of a POV edit filled with more pow, pillows and sleds than
