Life Beyond Walls: Red Line
Shared By: Smith | September 26, 2016
Sage Cattabriga-Alosa spends winters chasing steep lines from the peaks of Alaska to parts unknown, continuously pushing the limits of freeskiing with TGR. But one morning, lapping the Red Chair at his new home, Mt. Bachelor, he set his mind on a new one-run project. I wanted to do something more approachable, Sage recounts. He called in reinforcements, Mark Abma and Johnny Collinson, to help design, build, and execute Sages vision. From Day 1 onward, the crew ran into weather and condition set backs. Slush turned to bullet proof ice overnight to high winds that shut down the mountain, leaving the Red Line, as they call it, unrideable. They packed up and patiently waited. 30 days later, Sage, Johnny and Mark finally caught a break with 27 inches of fresh powder and brought Sages Red Line vision to fruition. The experience is everything.
