RWYB: Ligare Tout

Last winter Todd Ligare spent most of his time sled skiing in the backcountry near Valdez, Alaska for Teton Gravity Research. This racer-turned-freeskier-turned-freeride-force is notorious for ripping big fast lines wherever he goes. His equipment choices are surprisingly friendly, perfect for getting awesome on just about any hill. We caught up with him at the top of the tram at Snowbird, Utah, to see what he runs wherever he goes.

How We Test

Last spring our testers logged about 5 million vertical feet in Snowbird's Gad Valley to evaluate 2014-2015’s new skis, which is why ours is the most trusted, legit test in the world. Here's how we do it.

Historically, Snowbird has Utah's longest ski season, and this year's projected closing date is Memorial Day. For skiers looking for late-season powder and spring corn, the resort offers a $299 Spring Pass good through closing day. Current ski-and-stay lodging packages are $99 per person (double occupancy). Book at www.snowbird.com.

April Storms Bury Snowbird

Snowbird Resort has reported four and a half feet of powder within the last week and says 30-40 more are predicted to fall in the next few days. Ski-and-stay deals start at $99. What are you waiting for?
