TGR is finally legal! This past Saturday, we celebrated our 21’st birthday with the world premiere of Tight Loose, and this year’s film title couldn’t be more appropriate for describing the celebrations.
The world premiere this year was set up in the shadow of the resort that we have called home since day one – the 3 story tall screen looked tiny compared to Jackson Hole in the background, and the Tangerine Dream parked in front of it even smaller. With the Deadlocks playing on stage and the 10 Barrel Pray for Snow rail jam going on, the energy was firing before it was even dark enough to turn on the projector. A full crew of athletes were on hand to sign posters for our fans, and not even a little rain could put a damper on the evening (thankfully the Dream doubled as a stage for DJ ManCat to rock the house).
With prize giveaways from Volkl, CEP, The North Face, Atomic and more, the stoke level raised even further, until it was finally time to hit play, and a packed venue got to share our new ski and snowboard movie with us for the first time.
In true TGR fashion, the night was far from over when the movie ended. Hiball Energy drinks were flying as the crew descended to the Mangy Moose for the official afterparty (not to be confused with the after-after party or the after-after-after party), featuring The London Souls, and the hard rocking duo didn't disappoint.
Some of our favorite pictures from the night below. The 21st birthday celebrations continue as Tight Loose is now on tour, with showings all around the world over the next few months.

Look forward to celebrating with you over the coming months! Enjoy a couple more photos from a memorable night!
If you were born a boy in the Swiss mountains during the 1950s, chances are high you had dreams of becoming a mountain guide. Rey “Reto” Keller was one of those young boys with aspirations of one day guiding, growing up in the lower part of the Engadin Valley in a multi-generational family of guides. “Guiding was part of our family. As a boy, you had a stamp on your forehead when you were little–you were becoming a guide. It was kinda mandatory and traditional,” says Keller. But Keller is
If the world’s most famous ski resort, Whistler Blackcomb, hasn’t been on your bucket list, you’re probably doing the whole skiing thing wrong. The numbers are staggering: 8,171 acres, 200+ trails, 5,000+ vertical feet, 460+ inches of snowfall: you get the idea. The place is massive, but of course it takes a keen eye and some strong legs to figure out how to navigate it well and find the best stashes, both on and off the mountain. We caught up with our friend, Whistler local and
The lofty idea to link together Mt. Hood’s Timberline Ski Area and the town of Government Camp came one step closer to reality with the recent acquisition of Summit Ski Area by Timberline. According to KATU news, on Tuesday the tiny ski hill was purchased by Timberline with the hopes that it can expand the accessibility of skiing and riding at the Mount Hood area. Before any addition of a gondola or tram, Timberline is focused on keeping Summit affordable and expanding its
