Ptarmigan Ptrails, LLC is an Alaska based trail construction company. When Brian and Ed decided to join forces as Ptarmigan Ptrails, it was following many long, late night discussions on the progression of trail building in Alaska, the need for more progressive mountain bike and freeride trails, and a desire to branch out into new regions. Our experience and knowledge learned over a combined 15 years of trail building has made PTarmigan PTrails one of Alaska’s most innovative and progressive trail contractors. Founded in 2009 by co-owner Brian Vaughan, our goal is to continue the evolution of Alaska trails by providing sustainable, aesthetically pleasing and user specific trails.

Why mechanical disc brakes?!?!?!

Some of the places they are riding are nearly 1000 or more miles from BC, or in other words more than the distance from the Canadian border to Mexico. It would be silly to assume its all the same because it touches on it's Southeast corner.

Alaska to date is one of the most uncharted biking zones in North America. High alpine biking with views of the ocean, volcano's, Mt. McKinley and the midnight sun. This is the trailer for the Alaska Downhill Brigade project. To date this project has been 100% self funded. Many athletes in extreme sports spend much of their time in Alaska searching out the next big line to ride and film. In the free ride mountain bike world, this has yet to happen in Alaska. As local guides, production crew and riders we have searched out areas over the last 10 years for this project and we are pioneering Alaska for free ride mountain biking. Alaska Downhill Brigade (ADB) started in the fall of 2012 with a self funded budget, a few cameras, some local riders and one day granted to film out at Alyeska Resort in Girdwood Alaska. In the span of a 16-hr day and many hours of editing we submitted our first edit to the 2012 Adventure film festival in Alaska. Out of 15 films, JGS Concepts took home first place and we decided to take ADB to the next level. Since the first video release we have also won other awards including the Avid Chasing Trail award and Vital's Bravest award right here on Vital.

Cody was able to ride those lines just fine with the brakes on his bike. Can't afford real brakes when bills have to get paid first.

Alaska downhill brigade will be a full video series about the pioneering of mountain biking in Alaska produced by JGS Concepts. This is just a small little teaser we created for http://www.contour.com and the contourccp program. The places over the last year we have been scoping and riding are going to blow some minds as well as the stories that go along with getting to where we all have. To date this project has been 100% self funded. The first full episode will be online in September 2013. We have riders such as Chris Kovarik, Claire Buchar and Graham Agassiz coming on board for the full project that will work into the summer of 2014. If you are interested in becoming a possible sponsor for this project contact: josh@jgsconcepts.com Check out more details about the project on facebook or our website. http://www.facebook.com/alaskadownhillbrigade http://www.alaskadownhillbrigade.com Music: To Young for Tragedy by Griz http://www.mynameisgriz.com http://www.jgsconcepts.com

Added a new video Winter fat bike riding in Alaska 7/19/2013 4:10 PM

View full video here: http://www.pinkbike.com/video/320877/ We are very limited in Alaska for seasons of bike riding. So what do you do in the winters when you can't ride your bike on dirt? You go Fat Bike Riding. Fat Bikes are set up to be much more stable then a regular bike, so you can maintain your balance while riding on snow. We went out in March and filmed with Kevin Murphy of Anchorage, Alaska out at Kincaid Park to see what the Fat Bike are all about. After watching Kevin and getting to ride the bikes ourselves we found out why so many people are riding them. This is a small one minute clip we created for the Contour #CCP program. If you would like to watch our full edit that we have submitted to the chasing trail video contest on pinkbike click the link below: http://www.pinkbike.com/video/320877/ Rider: Kevin Murphy Filmed with: Contour +2 Sony FS700 Canon 5D Filmers: JGS Concepts Petrifilms.com Edited by: JGS Concepts Music By: Broke For Free- Blown Out Check us out on facebook: http://wwwfacebook.com/jgsconcepts
