Two weekends ago TGR athletes both past and present gathered at Squaw Valley for the last shoot of TGR's winter production season. A combination of both hard charging on the slopes and the bars led to a great weekend. We highlighted some moments above, and talked to TGR co-founder Todd Jones about the special couple of days.
"The idea for the segment was to gather as many TGR athletes as we could, both old and new, to shoot a party shred from the top of the Palisades. Of course the crew gets up there on top of the Chimney, in the gnar zone, and all of sudden they just start pinging all these super rowdy lines.
Dash Longe, who was MVP of the weekend, and a big part of getting everyone together, he was the first guy to throttle a super rowdy line. "I was like, 'Okay, this is how this is going to go down.' McGovern sent it, then Mac and Johnny did a double. Classic TGR athlete style, it wasn’t going to go down simple. It turned into this legendary session, which exceeded my expectations.
When we did the final drop shot I don’t think anything like that had gone down at the Palisades before. The celebratory vibe was epic and well captured, it is going to be a really good way to cap off the TGR's 21st film."
