Last year didn’t start off so hot for Tim Durtschi. Always known for starting his seasons early and ending them as late as possible, Tim’s came to an abrupt halt in early February when he crashed and injured himself at Jackson Hole’s Kings and Queens of Corbets Contest. A creative line into the couloir lined him up for a big spin at the bottom that unfortunately ended in a bit of a tumble. Luckily, Tim recovered quickly after taking a few weeks off and was able to join the crew for a spring mission in Alaska exploring some super steep spine lines alongside Kai Jones, Parkin Costain, and Nick McNutt.
