Video: Sammy Carlson Skis Some of the Deepest Pow We’ve Seen

Sammy Carlson is a prime example of an on-piste competition skier who has made the transition to an off-piste film skier.  This video, shot at Mustang Powder Cat Skiing in BC's Monashee Mountains, shows that he has gone just about as far as one possibly can from the groomed and icy slopes on which he used to compete.  In the years since his season-ending crash at the 2016 X Games in Aspen he has worked on several film segments, including The Sammy C Project by TGR.

Video: The Brown Blader Tackles Cody’s Central Couloir

Cody Peak's Central Couloir is one of the gnarlier sidecountry lines accessible from the top of Jackson Hole's tram. Easily visible from the resort, the couloir is ridiculously steep, icy, and terrifying.  Only viable in nearly-perfect conditions, and with severe consequences in the case of a fall, few attempt this Jackson Hole showpiece.  However, on a beautiful spring day in 2017, the Brown Blader made his bid for the couloir's first known snowblade descent.  How did it go?
