Ian McIntosh - Sony Mind’s Eye: Season 2 Episode 6

Fortunately for Ian McIntosh, Canada's health care system still insures for folks with pre-existing conditions, like having a few screws loose upstairs. You're not supposed to be able to ski La Grave—a place infamous for pants-shitting steeps and deadly exposure—at the speeds Mac and Johnny Collinson do in this episode of Sony Mind's Eye, so maybe socialized medicine is playing a part in the ability of guys like Ian to blaze new trails in the speed category (we're joking).

Watch Ian and Johnny flash some steep couloirs, some in pow, others in brutally variable conditions, in France's most unencumbered mountains with guide Joe Vallone, and then run off with Mac as he takes a vacation from his butt-puckering ski routine to go BASE jumping in Italy. We don't know what the translation of "terminal velocity" is in Italian, but we think it might sound something like "Non provateci a casa!!"

Sony's Mind's Eye is a 10-episode series of self-edits that give an insider's look at the team of TGR athletes as they documents their adventures with Sony's Action Cam.

​VIDEO: Full Cooke City Segment From Stoke the Fire

While Cooke City might only be a quick five-hour drive from our home base in Jackson Hole, it might as well be on a different planet. When Tim Durtschi and Kai Jones met up with Parkin Costain to put together their segment for it was clear they had stepped into a whole new world. When you arrive in the tiny town on the Montana/Wyoming border, you pretty much leave your truck in one place for the whole trip, and hop aboard a snowmobile to get around. That snow pony will take you pretty much

A Swedish Winter is a Long Winter

A Swedish Winter is a Long Winter

For many skiers, last winter meant staying home and finding snow and inspiration close by. This was easy for those of us who live in world class ski destinations like Jackson Hole or British Columbia. But for others, they had to do a bit more work to find what they're looking for. For Swedish skiers Malou Peterson and Kasja Larsson, this meant enduring some pretty bad conditions to ski big lines. Whether it be gale force winds, twenty-below temps, or rock hard ice, the two did a whole lot of

Level 1’s ‘Connected’ is Super Sick

This Level 1 flick features the two objectively sickest things in skiing: female shredders and street skiing. That's all in the first three minutes too. If you keep watching, it also has amazing pow skiing, some really nice butters, and gorgeous scenery. Oh and did we mention IT'S ALL WOMEN? In all realness, it's really cool to see Level 1 make a film like this. The whole concept of women finding connection through snow sports is so important and rad.
