Nick McNutt can land anything switch. Watch Nick McNutt’s award winning segment from TGR’s 2014 release Almost Ablaze, landing him Rookie of the Year at Powder’s iF3.
McNutt showcases his insane backcountry style, and in true McNutt form, lands almost everything switch. He casually nose butter 5’s with so much style, all anybody could do was stand and watch.
McNutt spoke to Powder Magazine last year about his affinity for riding switch:
I’ve always thought it was pretty rad when guys like Eric Pollard would 180 huge drops. Its one of those things that a lot of people don’t do. I don’t think its really been tapped into very much, and so still being figured out. I was fascinated by switch landings when I was pretty young so I’ve had a million falls before cameras were even around. You have to pay your dues and crash. If I wasn’t landing switch so much though I don’t think I’d be where I am today.
TGR’s 2014 release Almost Ablaze took home Powder’s Film of the Year award at the International Freeski Film Festival (iF3).
