If it's not bad enough that the premiere weekend for 'Lost and Found' was over 2 weeks ago. Now, someone asked me to, not only remember it, but to submit a Track TGR about it. Let's see...
Well, I guess the weekend really starts on Thursday night when all the boys from TGR get together for the investors dinner. This year we got hooked up with a dinner at the top of the Jackson Hole gondola at the new restaurant 'Couloir' for the most exclusive of parties.
By the time that Friday rolls around, afternoon sneaks up on you quickly and the next thing you know all the heavy hitters are getting into town and everyone's phone is blowing up. Athletes and industry big wigs lobby for the best golf team possible as the TGR tee off gets ready to, well, um, 'tee off'. (I dont remember who won, probably a crew that took themselves way too seriously)
After that we all headed over to 'The Calico' for some cocktails and good laughs with friends.
By Saturday morning (premiere day) you're either in the Village Cafe getting a Bloody or joining some group of guys that like to hurl themselves down the mountains, be it snow, or rocks. Seemed like a group of 15 padded mountain biker bodies could be seen with all types of gear spilling out of 3 loaded Jeeps and heading up Teton pass. Meanwhile, Dave Hudacsko and Aaron Hamby, guiding a team of interns and volunteer JH high school groms were in Teton Village preparing for the show. (Awesome work guys!)
People seemed to like the movie! Ian McIntosh, Kye, Sage, etc. all had great segments. But it was Marc Andre that brought the audience to it's feet with a standing ovation. And the film hadn't even started yet.
The after party at 'the Mangy Moose' went off Dolman, Rocknuts, Marc Andre and Bang Camaro totally killed it!

Carving turns on powerful 100mm underfoot skis is a pleasure - Atomic's brand-new Maverick 100Ti is our tool of choice. | Atomic photo. There’s a funny thing about skis: the ones with the most exciting, out-of this world design are often the ones we get to ride the least. Let’s be real, a powder day at a ski area doesn’t last long. If you’re lucky, you get a few morning runs of blissfully deep riding before the snow turns to chopped up crud, or even gets scraped off a hard underlying
The boys that are the Bunch - known for doing things a little differently - are dipping their hands into the game of making skis. | 1000 Skis photo. For those of you who have been paying attention to the weird corner of skiing that is the Bunch, you might have noticed some murmurs about Alex Hackel, Pär ‘Peyben’ Hägglund, Magnus Granér and Lucas Stål Madison switching up their ski sponsors this year. Well, the news is true, but there’s a whole lot more. The youthful skiing visionaries,
The first two things that come to mind about Ryan Hudson are that he's one of the most laid back, friendly humans I've ever met, and also one of the most interesting. After a full weekend of TGR premieres (you know how tiring that can be if you've ever been), Dark Starts, the Backcountry Splitboard Podcast rallied Ryan for a quick chat. Actually, the episode is more than two hours, but Ryan's charm and amazing life story will keep you captivated. The episode touches on how he came to love
