What Was Going Through Sammy Carlson’s Head Falling Off Massive Cliff

We've been going through the Defend My Lines talks that TGR athletes get to do each year at the International Pro Riders' Workshop in December. So far we've heard Ian McIntosh talk about his viral fall down a steep spine, Sage's almost-landed domination of a demonic "Plan B" line, and Angel Collinson talk about falling down a couloir that was far firmer and icier than she anticipated.

Atomic Brings it Back to the ‘80s With Latest Edit

The fine folks at Atomic graced us with a little mini-edit on Friday titled "Digital Style | Utah," that was a modern-day homage to ski movies of the '80s, combining the grainy footage and overly contrasted colors of yesteryear with the progressive skiing of today. So watch as Nicky Keefer, Mitchell Brower, Jonah Williams and our good friend Tim Durtschi tear it up to the musical stylings of Sebastian Gampl, then pull out your old Walkmans and reminisce about the era that gave us Oh, and
