Every year, TGR challenges the next generation of ski and snowboard groms to produce a video part showcasing their best skiing and riding in the TGR Grom Contest. This year, after watching close to 100 entries, we have narrowed our list down to two Grand Prize Winners.
We are proud to announce one male and one female Grand Prize Winner: 12-year-old Marcus Goguen and 10-year-old Finley Good. Marcus hails from the great white north, calling the big mountains of British Columbia home, and his skiing certainly shows that. Finley, on the other hand, calls the high desert of New Mexico home, and lays down the all-mountain steeze in her #shredlikeagirl edit.
Each grand prize edit will be shown before the crowds at each stop of the Far Out Film Tour, so keep an eye out for the edits at your local showing. TGR’s Far Out Film tour kicks off this weekend at Jackson’s Far Out Fest.
Check out the winning edits here:
Congrats to Marcus Goguen for taking home the Grand Prize in the male category!
Finley took home our first ever Grand Prize in the female category!
This year’s prize pack includes an IPRW Experience, a trip to one of the 2019 Freeride World Tour Stops, a pair of Line Skis & Full tilt Boots or a Jones Snowboard, an Ikon Pass, a 1-year sponsorship with Outdoor Research and Pret Helmets, an Ortovox Safety Package, a Dakine Backpack, Hydroflask swag, a Kicker Bullfrog Bluetooth Speaker, and plenty of TGR swag.
We would also like to throw some stoke to the runner up, 12-year-old Californian Brooklyn Depriest, whose inverted antics earned him a Jones Snowboard, a Pret Helmet, Dakine Apparel, an Outdoor Research kit and Hydroflask and TGR swag.
Snowboarder Brooklyn Depriest took home our runner-up prize for his airs, rails, and style!
Of course, Travis Rice was going to put on a show at Kings and Queens of Corbet’s—Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is his backyard after all. Launching into the infamous couloir, Rice went HUGE by not only airing Corbet’s but also the subsequent kickers at the bottom. All in all, it was an absolute dream ride. If you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like to go full send into Corbet’s, here’s your chance. Rice just dropped the POV from his first run and it’s insane. RELATED: Watch the 2019 Kings
Just when you thought Karl Fostvedt couldn't get any crazier, he decided to hit Corbet's SWITCH. Yeah, and he stomped it. But was it enough to maintain his reign as king of Corbet's? Tough to tell considering the equally impressive runs from Travis Rice and Blaine Gallivan. For now, we'll wait in suspense until the winners are announced this Saturday. RELATED: Watch the 2019 Kings and Queens of Corbet's now. Compared to his winning 2018 run, Karl outdid himself this year:
Travis Rice’s run at Kings and Queens of Corbet’s 2019 might have been some of the finest snowboarding we’ve ever seen, but the real hero was no doubt Trevor Kennison, who chucked it off the lip aboard his sit-ski. Kennison suffered a life-changing snowboarding injury in 2014 when he crashed on a jump in the backcountry of Vail Pass, Colorado, landing on his back. He has worked with the High Fives Foundation ever since, and competed in the ski race events with dreams of entering the 2022
