About

Age
28 years old


Growing up in Kimberley, B.C., Nick McNutt’s dad taught him how to make twin tips the old fashioned way—using a heat gun to bend the tails of his Elans. While McNutt’s skis are less jerry-rigged these days, those twin-tip roots gained him a reputation for landing switch more often than not. Canadian production company PYP and Sweetgrass have already featured McNutt’s playful style, which is marked by a tendency to face uphill more than down. Last year, McNutt’s skiing took him to Teton Gravity Research’s Co-Lab finals and now he’s secured a spot to film with TGR fulltime. “When I first saw McNutt’s style in his Co-Lab edit, I knew he would be a great fit for the TGR team,” says TGR’s Greg Epstein. “After hanging with him last winter he will definitely be with us for a long time.” This year, McNutt has his own segment in Almost Ablaze, set to release this fall.

Skier Outruns Massive Avalanche

This past winter Nick McNutt was skiing in the North Cascades when he faced the most dangerous element of big mountain skiing, an avalanche. Fortunately the Canadian showcased not only his strength as a skier, but his ability to perform under pressure. Nick was able to point his skis and safely ski out of the avalanche. This was captured while he was filming for Teton Gravity Research’s new film “Tight Loose”. The full movie is available now for digital download and on DVD.

Paradise Waits - Official Trailer by Teton Gravity Research

Media house Teton Gravity Research (TGR) announces the release of the trailer for Paradise Waits, the feature-length ski and snowboard film slated for a September 2015 release. For those who anticipate winter’s arrival with frothing mouths and the dreams of what may come, this past year came with an unfamiliar set of struggles as perfect moments became more and more elusive. But for the TGR team, this only hardened their pursuit of winter’s rewards. Through the highs and lows of a curious season, they come to find that the moments found on the other side of adversity are the greatest moments of all. As the days turn into weeks and the weeks roll into months, it’s the moments when everything seems to come together in perfect harmony that resonate the loudest.  Paradise Waits chronicles the entire season of a group of characters who are some of the best skiers and snowboarders in the world. Each athlete is mic’d up throughout the film, capturing their personalities from the weird, lighthearted and funny moments, to the action-filled when conditions line up in paradise. Travel the narrow streets and alleys of Boston, where a record 110 inches of snow transformed Beantown into a blank white canvas. Experience a stormy Alaska, as a weeklong storm drops ten feet of fresh snow. Discover Paradise on the far away peaks of Greece, Kosovo, Japan and beyond. Paradise Waits is true documentation of the season as a whole, a ski and snowboard film that you can truly follow.  From the award-winning filmmaking crew that brought you 2014’s Almost Ablaze comes the story of one weird winter and the people who celebrate it… Paradise Waits, a ski and snowboard film.  Starring: Sage Cattabriga-Alosa / Ian McIntosh / Tim Durtschi / Angel Collinson / Nick McNutt / Dana Flahr / Dane Tudor / Dash Longe / Dylan Hood / Colter Hinchliffe / Todd Ligare / Griffin Post / Johnny Collinson / Mark Carter / Bryan Iguchi / Cam Riley / Clayton Vila / Forrest Shearer / Sammy Luebke / Sammy Carlson Filmed on Location in: Jackson Hole, Wyo. / Revelstoke Mountain Resort, B.C. / Boston, Mass. / Golden, B.C. / Sharr Mountains and Restelica, Kosovo / Greece / Kiroro, Japan / Black Ops Valdez / Neacola Range, Alaska Paradise Waits will premiere September 11, 2015 in Jackson Hole, Wyo. followed by a worldwide film tour and releases digitally and on DVD/Blu-ray.

Atomic Airtime I FLIP THE SWITCH, Jackson and Whistler

Kicking things off in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Tim Durtschi skied switch off more natural features in a few days than most do in a year going forwards. Add in a tree tap, a butter pad and some of the lightest snow out there and you’ve got yourself a recipe for some serious fun. Hearing of a new Whistler-bound storm, we cruised north to Canada to link up with Nick McNutt who guided us to some of the most creative and fun areas. Whether it was skinning out to an isolated zone to build a jump or throwing it down on natural formations next to the lift - the guys went to town on both.
