The Athlete Edits: Karl Fostvedt

TGR’s 25th year of making ski and snowboard films came with some fresh faces. For Make Believe, we had the chance to shoot with a bunch of talent fresh to the TGR roster, and it should be no surprise that backcountry slayer Karl Fostvedt was on the list. The Idaho native knows a thing or two about sending it big just across the border in Jackson Hole – including the title of King of Corbet’s Couloir, among others. In the early months of 2020, Fostvedt returned to Jackson, snowmobile and powder skis in tow, for a few days of unforgettable shredding both right outside the resort and also deep in some lesser-known backcountry zones.

Booters, spines, bottomless pow and sled sessions gave us a chance to get to know what Crazy Karl is all about – taking freestyle chops to some massive hits in the backcountry. There’s plenty of spinning and flipping every which way, lots of faceshots, and no shortage of good times in Karl's Make Believe athlete edit, so kick back and get stoked for the first flakes to fall.

World’s First Triple Cork in a Ski Halfpipe

World’s First Triple Cork in a Ski Halfpipe

It may be July, but that doesn’t stop the snow park junkies from booting up and getting some late season tricks in. Just because it’s the middle of summer doesn’t mean you can’t break a world record on the slopes, right? U.S. freeskier Hunter Hess would agree, landing the world’s first triple cork on a ski halfpipe last week. After spending time mastering his form on Mammoth Mountain and Mt. Hood, Hess was finally able to stomp the landing. Talk about a big summer blowout. To catch some more
