Tanner Hall Returns to the LPP!! He's here to talk about his new film, "Tanner Hall Forever", he and producer, Constantine Papanicolaou / Frozen Ambrosia are releasing this fall. If you are expecting this to be a ski film with bangers stacked on top of each other, this is not it my friends. This movie lives in the same space as the 2010 film, "Like a Lion" which was a documentary of Tanner's life and evolution up to that point. THF follows Tanner's foray into the Freeride World Tour and highlights the moments in his past that brought him to compete with the world's best freeskiers.
We caught up with Tanner in Montana where he just bought a new home so he can simplify his life and live closer to family. He boasts about how fulfilling it is it to chop the wood that will heat his house in the winter and shovel the gravel to lay his new driveway. It also helps that in Montana there are trails and big ski lines not far from his back door.
Tanner's drive to bring his skiing to the highest possible level is stronger than ever. The move to Montana, quitting tobacco and limiting his time listening to the noise online are all tactics to increase his focus to not only improve his skiing but to improve himself.
Tanner is in a good place. Expect those banger edits to continue but for now he's making sure there will be a Tanner Hall Forever.

Of course, that means the locals are absolutely frothing to get after it, and that’s just what Tof Henry and Seth Morrison did on one of the biggest lines of them all: the Aiguille Du Midi’s Mallory Route. More of a climbing route than a ski line, it comes into rare condition
Kai Jones’ progression in big mountain skiing isn’t slowing down, with the young gun spending the better part of the winter stacking clips in Jackson and Montana for the upcoming TGR film. To cap off the season, he just pulled off a descent that he’s been dreaming of for his entire life: skiing off the summit of the Grand Teton. Inspired by generations of legendary skiers in Jackson Hole, Kai teamed up with his close friend and mentor Tim Durtschi, as well as Jackson Hole Mountain Guides'
