Classic style! “Return of the Turn,” Ep. 4 brings straight skis, hot doggin’ back to life

The Return of the Turn Ep. 4 is here with Marcus Caston and Zach Clayton going back to the future on 210cm straight skis. Remember those glory days of hot dogging? Well, don’t be fooled—the spirit of the original freeskier is alive and well.

Here, skiers Marcus Caston and Zach Clayton head to Utah’s Alta Ski Area to ski its famous steeps, blast through mogul fields and slash pow on some of skiing’s most infamous skis from the past: Blizzard’s Thermo V20 and the original Firebird. At 210cm and 205cm, respectively, these twigs aren’t for the faint of heart; rockin’ these things, you better “grip it and rip it” before you get bucked worse than a rookie at the rodeo.

With special guest narrator, the original ski movie smooth talker, Greg Stump, the next four minutes will take you back to a time when knitted sweaters, headbands, Vuarnet sunnies and jeans were the quintessential skier’s choice outerwear; and to go skiing meant going fast, keeping it loose and having a good time.
