We are a group of intermediate to advanced level riders, passionate about discovering our potential, pushing past preconceived barriers and limitations, and conquering fears in a progressive and relatively safe manner (that point is debatable of course), with the support of fellow gnarly shredders. 

Our culture is fundamentally GNAR, which you can learn about by watching the infamous and legendary "GNAR The Movie" on the Unofficial Networks site, and "McConkey" (on Netflix).   We have no official affiliation with the movie or the McConkey legacy but we do embrace the culture and the fervor that they have created.  Having personally experienced the culture first-hand in Revelstoke, BC, we have embarked on a mission to bring it to our home turf here in Ontario, to Blue Mountain and beyond.

You will join the TEAM GNAR as a "Cadet", until you complete the following missions and actions in front of a TEAM GNAR TORONTO Organizer and other Totally GNAR team members.  Completion of tasks will qualify you as a full-fledged "Totally GNAR" TEAM member;

1) You must attend a retro outing wearing a retro ski outfit (or a costume), the uglier and/or the brighter, the better.  Preferably it becomes your go-to outfit for GNAR events.

2) You must ride down 'Spectacular', the double-black diamond run at north chair at Blue Mountain, while talking to your mom (or guardian equivalent) on your cell phone holding your phone to your ear with one hand... From top to bottom...  No earbuds allowed, must be done the old-school way.

3) At the top of any run, loudly declare that you are the best skier on the mountain (a minimum of 5 strangers must be within ear-shot) and then when they look in your direction, you take off down the hill with extra steez. 

This group's home resort is Blue Mountain, and all resort outings will involve pre-arranged carpooling (see event description for details). There will also be weekend getaways as well as an annual storm-chasing trip or two.  Also a trip to Chile in August 2017 to ride in the Andes is in the works...  

There will be gnarly socials, parties and related events... Are you ready to shred the GNAR?
