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.

Luckily, nobody was injured in the blaze, but over 5000 square feet of the building, including lift machinery and the restaurant were burned. The lift cable melted, severely damaging the
There’s been a lot of buzz lately surrounding Alterra Mountain Company and their Ikon Pass. Since launching in January, the list of resorts and destinations keeps growing and growing—to the point that it’s hard to keep track. So, we thought we’d sift through the noise and lay it all out nicely for you. Here’s what happened most recently: In the Pacific Northwest Alterra just announced last week that they purchased Washington’s Crystal Mountain for the 2018-19 season. With this acquisition,

A Sierra glory line due to its size and consistent pitch that holds its angle from top to bottom. This morning we opted for an upper side entry, which proved to be a
