This week, the final stop of the Freeskiing World Tour takes places at Snowbird, Utah. By Saturday, one man and one woman will be named the Freeskiing World Champions. Competitor Griffin Post—who's leading the men's division heading into this event—gives us an update on what to expect.
Conceived by Rob Gaffney and Shane McConkey, Squaw Valley is currently holding a contest to determine what skier can win the game of GNAR (Gaffney's Numerical Assessment of Radness), which involves rowdy skiing, cliff hucking, and embarrassing acts (like skiing naked). Griffin Post gives us the first update on the contest.
Nothing will put your stomach in your throat like launching a cliff or hitting a jump. Unfortunately, most of us flail like a hamster thrown from a window on our first few flights. To get past this, you need to learn the four stages of launching any air: inspection, takeoff, air, and landing.
