Micah Black Greases Breakneck, Makes for Monumental TGR Moment

Next Up

Micah Black’s Breakneck session was another monumental moment for TGR. At the time, the a super technical line in the Jackson Hole backcountry hadn’t been greased fluidly before, and Black was determined.

It took multiple attempts and countless hard falls, but Black's drive paid off. Swerving in and out of trees and off cliffs, he finally nailed it, saying, “Now I’m ready to move on, close the chapter,” and, “Oh God, what am I gonna do next?”

His final words: “They wonder why skiers party at the end of the day…It’s because our nerves are shot.”
