GoPro Line of the Winter January Winner |Ryan Cruze’s Sunrise Teton Pass Line
Wapow! Congrats to Ryan Cruze for winning GoPro’s Line of the Winter for January. Cruze hiked up Teton Pass and dropped into a sunrise Glory Bowl lap at just the right time with pristine conditions. He slashed his way through the glorious line and earned himself a cool $1,000 for his plethora of face shots.
Ryan tells us all about the how he scored his line:
That morning started around 5 am in downtown Jackson, Wyoming. Myself and three good friends hiked up the Teton Pass boot pack for a chance at untouched turns for sunrise. We were lucky to be the first on top since it’s almost impossible to get ahead of the Pass locals that get after it everyday up there. We were dropping in on main Glory Bowl and the footage you can see that the storm snow was not very well bonded, causing a few small, manageable slough slides on the way out the exit. This is actually near a line that has caused some controversy this year when someone broke off a small avalanche onto the road, causing some serious issues. It was definitely not the most technical line of the season so far, but one of the more beautiful fresh pow laps I’ve ever had, and still managed to get first chair that morning over at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort!
The GoPro Line of winter continues, and it’s super easy to enter and to win. All you have to do is capture your best line, submit it and let the GoPro gods decide who got it best. Each monthly winner gets $1000 and the overall winner will snag $20,000.
