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:

Snowboarder Brooklyn Depriest took home our runner-up prize for his airs, rails, and style!
For the second time in as many days, Teton County Search and Rescue responded to a call from an injured skier Saturday afternoon, reports the Jackson Hole News & Guide. The 36-year-old managed to get his “ski tips [stuck] in the snow, and hit his head and crashed pretty hard,” said Teton County Undersheriff Matt Carr who also mentioned that the man was “complaining of a head injury and some pain in his spinal area.” The patient was retrieved via helicopter, transferred to an ambulance and
Anna Gasser just took snowboarding to new heights by becoming the first woman to land a cab triple 1260. For those who don’t get inverted, a cab triple starts by riding switch and is followed by three-and-a-half rotations to land riding forwards.

No stranger to making history, Gasser
“How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains!” - JOHN MUIR Day 6: We are starting to get in to the surreal, “dream state” stage of the trip. We find our pace, we wake in the twilight hours, ease into the day with a casual coffee talk waiting for sun to reach camp, pack our gear, saddle our packs and settle into and start our day of walking and riding until we run out of daylight. We are deliberately moving slow as we climb up the ridge above camp. On long trips I never like
