By TetonGravityResearch | July 18th, 2012
In season 4 episode 12 of Teton Gravity Research's web series Almost Live, snowboarder Ralph Backstrom joins skiers Griffin Post and Todd Ligare at Valdez Heli Ski Guides on Thompson Pass in Alaska. Based out of the new Tsaina Lodge, the boys come up with a tactical plan that allows them to be more productive while filming in the Chugach Mountains. Because it takes time to scope and evaluate terrain, the boys uses sleds to check the zone first and then bring in a heli with the production team to get the aerial shots. They get the system dialed and become unstoppable while shooting for TGR's newest movie, The Dream Factory.
