Tailgate Alaska In Short Episode 34 – Heli Time with Black Ops Valdez and Ralph Backstrom

The latest episode of Tailgate Alaska In Short is a blinder! Take a trip in a Black Ops heli and watch as Ralph Backstrom charges the big mountain faces of Thompson Pass near Valdez, Alaska!

Ralph Backstrom is a beast at snowboarding and there’s nothing better than seeing him unchained in his element.

In the latest episode of Tailgate Alaska we witness a full-on snowboard onslaught as Ralph attacks the gnarly peaks of Thompson Pass, a stones throw away from the Tailgate Alaska base camp.

From sweeping heli shots to ridge-line descents to crazy POV angles, this is one episode of tailgate Alaska that you do not want to miss.
