Urban Assault On Alaska For The Dream Factory
By Pete O | April 9th, 2012
It's no secret that Alaska has been getting hammered by snow this Winter. Since December, Anchorage has been the site of multiple urban film and photo shoots.
TGR has visited AK on many film trips over the years to document big mountain riding. This year the team went on the search to see what the urban scene is like in AK.

Tim Durtschi grew up skiing at Alyeska. He tried this rail for the first time when he was 15 years old. With all of the urban crews migrating to Alaska to film this year, the cops have figured out most of the spots and getting busted is a regular occurrence. We didn't get shut down here by cops but we did get shut down by a train conductor.
