In the latest Tailgate Alaska ‘In Short’ episode, we go on a journey back to the legendary World Freeride Championship: King Of The Hill events hosted by the legendary Nick Peralta.
Watch Dave Short huck a huge backflip to kick off his run, Mike Basich tackle a scary looking double cliff line and Mark Landvik and Shawn Farmer arm wrestle to decide 6th and 7th place…
Stay tuned for more throwback King Of The Hill footage coming next week.
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.
