Episode 18 of the Tailgate Alaska In Short series gives us a look at the various mountains and faces that you can snowboard a stone’s throw from the Tailgate Alaska camp.
From wide-open mellow faces to steep as shit, gnarly peaks riddled with cornices and couloirs, there’s something for everyone in the Tailgate Alaska backcountry. Take a whirlwind tour of the area with Eric Anderson.
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.
