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 season was a little different than most for him, as he tends to focus much of his skiing into the later part of the winter, when conditions are prime for big-game hunting in the mountains of BC and Alaska. While the season was cut short following an avalanche accident, he was lucky enough to still stack many memorable days close to home, filming in Revelstoke with Sammy Carlson, and around Pemberton with his fellow North Face teammates Christina Lustenberger, Sam Smoothy, and Ian McIntosh. Revelstoke was all about bottemless pow and taking advantage of BC’s finest asset: pillows. Following that, the weather cleared for a few weeks of shooting in the high alpine, putting tracks down massive couloirs and scary technical faces in the company of good friends.

In case you haven’t seen the film yet, Make Believe is still on tour this fall, and is also available for digital download now.

Inside Stoke the Fire: Alaska

What do a bunch of TGR athletes do when the snow is less than ideal? Well, go to the beach, of course. When Stoke the Fire athletes Caite Zeliff, Elyse Saugstad, Griffin Post and Johnny Collinson were faced with some “challenging” conditions in beautiful Seward, Alaska this past year, they did just that – headed to the beach and chilled out with some Sierras. As the down days started stacking up, the crew was faced with the decision of whether to bail. Luckily, with the input from their crack

Phil Casabon and Sammy Carlson Capture the Spirit of the Thing

Phil Casabon and Sammy Carlson have done it again. The two masters of steez, with the hand of Hotlaps, headed out to Mt.Hood to film some truly cool clips. When it comes to choosing some audio to go behind your edit, many may take the easy way out with a rock song. However, Casabon and Carlson go with a beautiful tune that not only matches the vibe of the skiers, but makes you feel like you’re having tea with Master Splinter himself. If you watch carefully, you’ll even catch a quick glimpse
