The Athlete Edits: Caite Zeliff

Hold it wide open. That’s the mantra Caite Zeliff likes to live by, and when you watch her ski it makes sense. Growing up, the skier envisioned herself becoming a World Cup ski racer. But life doesn’t always go to plan, and when a torn ACL kept her from ski racing, she packed her bags and headed west for Jackson Hole. Wide-eyed and eager to learn, she waitressed and ski instructed to fuel her new powder skiing and cliff hucking lifestyle, honing her freeskiing talent along the way.

In 2018, she threw a shifty into the 45-degree Corbet’s Couloir for Jackson Hole Mountain Resort's Kings and Queens of Corbet’s competition. Not only did Zeliff win the event, but jumped from anonymity to professional athlete. The following year, after joining the North Face athlete team, she sent it even bigger and better, walking away with the queen’s trophy once again. This year, Zeliff expanded past the competition realm and onto the silver screen, by filming with TGR for Make Believe. Even though she was a rookie to the TGR athlete team, Zeliff didn't ski like one and ticked off a number of classic JHMR lines. Moving forward, we can’t wait to see more from this ripper!

The Athlete Edits: Nick McNutt

I think we can all agree that Nick McNutt is one of the most fun skiers to watch in the world. Whether it’s dropping unfathomably tall pillow stacks, spinning off cliffs, or landing backwards in pow on his Atomic Bent Chetler 120s, he makes it all look easy. It’s probably the years of experience he’s gained in the type of terrain that encourages that kind of skiing, or maybe it’s some sort of god-given talent. But either way, we’re always fired up for McNutt to be a part of our team. This

Bobby Brown reminds us once again that he's a master of all ski disciplines. One week, he’s hucking features in the backcountry, the next, he’s showing us his skills in the park. This top-to-bottom park edit of Bobby has us googly-eyed over his hand drags and 540’s. Seems like a bluebird day riding rails at Breckenridge is just what the doctor ordered for those early season blues, and Bobby Brown is serving it up.
