Watch: It’s a Pow-Pocalypse at Alpine Meadows

Californians have officially lost their shit. Just one week after video emerged of the madness of a rope drop at Snowbird in Utah, skiers and snowboarders in the Golden State upped the ante as a stampede of crazed skiers and snowboarders rushing towards the chairlifts at Alpine Meadows this past weekend. It's like an unstoppable Black Friday mob, except instead of chasing after discounted iPads the masses were running to 63 inches of fresh snowfall.

Honestly, I don’t blame them, it’s been pretty rough for the Sierra this year. After such an epic winter last season, this year’s snowpack has been at a quarter of it’s normal level before this most recent dumping.

That dramatic difference is enough to drive any sensible person into a powder-crazed state. So Californians—enjoy your much deserved snow—but please don’t trample the person in front of you trying to do so.

Real Skifi Tries 21 Tricks on the Same Rail

This time, the guys try 21 different tricks on the same handrail. Oh, and did we mention theres no snow in sight, and the handrail leads straight into a river? Looks like a great way too cool off to us.

Ditched: Speedflyer and Skier Go Head to Head

We’ve all had the following conversation: “you’re still in bed dude? Come on—I’m outside waiting!” There’s always at least one friend who just can’t seem to get their act together when you’re trying to head up for the mountains. Skier Jake Hopfinger and speedflyer Hayes Majerus know this dynamic all too well, in fact, it’s so ingrained into their normal routine that it served as the basis for Benshi Creative’s latest short film, Ditched. Benshi Creative is a two-man team comprised of Cameron

Far Out Places: The Purcell Mountains and British Columbia

In Canada, pilgrimages to backcountry huts are a fairly common pastime during the wintertime. The idea is to use these little structures as a strategic basecamp for foot-powered missions and TGR is no stranger to the remarkable landscape of British Columbia. For this year’s Far Out segment in the Purcell Mountain range, which are home to both world-class heli-skiing and the resort Kicking Horse, we opted to do as the locals do with some Canadian-style hut accommodations. In classic TGR
