Watch the First Quadriplegic to Ever Heliski in AK

This will hands down be the most inspiring video of your day. Like all skiers, Tony Schmiesing dreams of fresh pow, big lines, and AK heli trips. He spends his winters chasing snow and skiing with his friend and instructor, Brian. Yet, Tony does it all without the use of his arms–or his legs.

Skiing, side by side (or front to back) with Brian, they were able to share their first, historic, turns in mecca.

​Tim Durtschi, Owen Leeper, and Co. Send Beartooth’s Road Gap

Tim Durtschi and friends Owen Leeper, Sasha Motivala, and Amon Barker went up to Beartooth Basin this weekend and celebrated summer skiing with a good ol’ road gap, right over the Beartooth Highway. Some bystanders were so amused they stopped to take out their cameras and film the guys, including a news reporter. If you don't know this crew and their skiing abilities, the surprise and shock of turning a corner of the pass to see them flying over the highway and landing in the snow on
