The latest Tailgate Alaska In Short episode explores how three snowboarders can choose very different lines down the same face. Travis McAlpine, Mikey Mahrohn and Randy Shacket take three very different approaches to riding down the same mountain – one of the beauties of snowboarding – no one rider is the same!
This year marks the seventh Tailgate Alaska (which went down March 28- April 6, 2014). With 10 countries, six provinces and 15 states already representing, the event is the annual pilgrimage of dedicated recreational riders, professional athletes and the industry to ride the world’s best mountains and deepest snow on the planet.
Tailgate Alaska offers multiple on-site rescue teams and free daily snow science classes. This year Tailgate Alaska added nightly seminars given by industry veterans and snow safety experts, who shared their experience with participants of the event.
