The Fifty Ep. 14 – Cody Schralps the Middle Teton

For anyone who’s ever skied in Grand Teton National Park, the latest episode of Cody Townsend’s The Fifty might seem familiar. Wake up in the dark, slog up Garnet Canyon, become overwhelmed by the beauty of the mountains above you at sunrise, continue the slog to whatever objective you may have, and then proceed to rip the sh*t out of said objective. Then do it all in reverse. Days in GTNP are usually big, but do it right, and they can be the most rewarding skiing you can imagine.

After a bit of a summer break, Cody’s groundbreaking series returns with a new episode (full disclosure: this was filmed last season) with some new characters: Mark and Janelle Smiley – two local Jackson crushers that attempted a similar feat a few years ago. Over the course of several years, the Smileys made an attempt on the 50 classic climbs of North America – the inspiration to the 50 classic ski descents. 

In this episode, Mark joins Cody and Bjarne on a jaunt up the Middle Teton – perhaps one of the most aesthetic and freeride-able lines in the collection.

The Freeride World Tour just announced their full 2020 athlete list, and it’s absolutely stacked with 49 of the best freeride skiers and snowboarders in the world. We’re pretty stoked to see some returning names on the list – legendary names like Tanner Hall, Aymar Navarro, Arianna Tricomi, Victor De le Rue, and Sammy Luebke, to name a few. This crew will be joined by a fresh crop of freeriders, including ski rookies like USA’s Jack and Kevin Nichols. RELATED: Check Out This Full Segment

Video: Lalo Rambaud Goes Freeriding on Slalom Skis

We're used to seeing Lalo Rambaud throwing down on the Freeride Junior Tour, but this is a welcome departure from the norm. Rambaud ditches his long, fat freeride skis for a pair of short and thin slalom sticks, and proceeds to hit many of La Clusaz's classic features. He might not overshadow the Candide edits that made the features famous, but he's 17 and using skis intended to never leave an icy racecourse.  RELATED: Get Tickets to See TGR's on Tour A few creative Youtube commentators have

The Fifty Ep. 15+16: Two Fourteeners in Two Days

Climbing and skiing a fourteener is no mean accomplishment, generally requiring a long approach and steep ascent. Doing it twice in two days is just silly. However, Cody Townsend is nothing if not silly, so we shouldn't be surprised that he tried it.  RELATED: The Fifty Ep. 14 - Cody Shralps the Middle Teton Almost there, bud. @bjarnesalen photo.
