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.
