Snowboarding Takes on the World

Teton Gravity Research garners prestigious nomination alongside Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone, and CNN for digital feature about snowboarding icon Bryan Iguchi.

JACKSON, Wyo. (April 18, 2016) In what the New York Times has called “the internet’s highest honor,” global youth-culture media leader Teton Gravity Research (TGR), has been recognized for excellence in digital content production.

TGR has been nominated for “Best Branded Editorial Experience” in the 20th Annual Webby Awards for its work on The Unfound: Bryan Iguchi, a multimedia digital feature about snowboarding icon Bryan Iguchi. The Unfound: Bryan Iguchi, presented by Volcom and Gore-Tex, documents the journey of a man dedicated to his passion, elegantly displaying the story in photography, words, and video.

Nomination in this category, which recognizes unique immersive digital content, is a competitive and important distinction. Other nominees include large, mainstream media producers Rolling Stone, The Atlantic, CNN, and The Wall Street Journal.

“Being nominated for a Webby with media giants like CNN and WSJ is a huge honor for the team here at TGR,” says CEO Todd Jones. “Of course, winning this category would leave us more than thrilled. It would stand as recognition of the talents of our remarkable digital team and help cement TGR as the true leader in youth action-sports media.”

The winner for Best Branded Editorial Experience will be chosen through social-media voting, which closes April 21, 2016.

The 10 Most Masshole Things That Went Down at The Fenway Big Air

At a young age, a kid growing up in Massachusetts may start enjoying the Bruins, the Patriots, or the Red Sox. Maybe the kid gets a little aggressive when another kid takes their toy at recess, or cuts them off in the jungle gym, or their favorite Sox player blows a blunt to miss the playoff cut.

While dozens die every year attempting the summit with breathing

My favorite part about bear videos this summer have been the screams. After the reactions in this video of a bear opening a car door in Yellowstone, I didn't think that I would hear a male voice at a higher pitch. I was wrong. When Rodney Ginn realizes his Mammoth Lakes, CA home has been broken into by a mama bear and her two cubs, he pretty much just loses it (rightly so).  RELATED: Bear Officially Out-Evolves Yellowstone Tourists, Opens Car Door The mother bear charges Rodney up the stairs,
