VIDEO: Benedikt Böhm Skied Across the Alps In 36 Hours

I know, I know, skimo racing is super dorky. It involves Lycra, skinny skis, and lots of walking. But you have to admit, moving light and fast through the mountains is pretty impressive when it means you can traverse an ENTIRE mountain range in one push. Ski mountaineer and Dynafit GM Benedikt Böhm did just that last March, finishing a Transalp ski route in just under 36 hours. He’s skied Manaslu, set a speed record on Dhaulagiri VII, and done the whole Transalp thing before, so it’s no surprise that he came back and absolutely crushed this attempt.

This particular route covered 130 miles and nearly 46,000 vertical feet, how’s that for a ski tour? Oh yeah, and in case it wasn’t clear yet, it took Böhm less than 36 hours to get it done, walking from Bavaria to South Tyrol.

How’s that for some quarantine training motivation? Better start those squats!

The Brotherhood Escort Is A Haunting Reminder Of the Power of the Mountains

Different things drive us into the mountains. For some, it’s a desire to escape. For others, it’s a desire to explore and push the limits. For some though, it’s about connecting with themselves in a way nothing else can provide. For two Navy SEALs, an attempt to traverse the entirety of Colorado’s Sangre de Cristo Range was a moment of reflection and connection with two fallen friends.

Remember that grom segment from Faction’s The one where a little tiny Henry Sildaru chases none other than Candide Thovex around La Clusaz? Yeah, it’s probably one of the rowdiest grom segments ever shot and Faction just re-released the whole seggy online for you to watch.

This All-Female Ski/Sailing Trip To Greenland Was Forced To Reckon With COVID-19

Sometimes you just have to go with the flow. When an all-female ski expedition that included TGR Tested rider Ilka Hadlock and some of the strongest and most badass ladies in skiing (Mary Mcintyre, Corinne Prevot, Keree Smith, Leona Charpentier, Julia Olsen, and Camilla Edwards) set sail from Iceland to Greenland this March, they had no idea what would be in store for them. On an expedition like this, pretty much anything could go wrong, but what eventually derailed their effort was
