Ian McIntosh Is Insane

McIntosh wins the award for Best Line with yet another balls-of-steel send in Alaska

Canadian Ian McIntosh has made a living off of skiing huge, steep, and scary AF lines in Alaska for 10 years. And he’s still winning awards for skiing lines most of would never think was humanly possible. That’s his way.

“He combines aggressive fall-line skiing with a high-speed air presence, launching 50-foot cliffs and punching down 60-degree terrain with Jeremy Nobis-like power,” writes Kade Krichko in a profile of McIntosh that published in POWDER in 2015.

McIntosh’s winning line was featured in the movie Tight Loose by Teton Gravity Research.
