When Mitch Tölderer Grabbed Gambler's Spine First Descent

Next Up

These days you can probably find Jones snowboard team member Mitch Tölderer splitboard mountaineering in the Austrian Alps with his wife, Bibi Tölderer-Pekarek, or conditioning fellow ski and snowboard athletes at the couple's business, Functional Sports Training.

However, before the former Freeride World Tour champion became world-renown for his alpinism, he made a name for himself riding spines in Alaska. In this vintage (i.e. 2009) footage from O'Neill, Tölderer grabs the first snowboard descent of Gambler's Spine.
