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. For details and tickets head to www.tetongravity.com/tours. Shows this week in Salt Lake City, Boise, Bozeman, Squaw Valley and many more!
Look forward to celebrating with you over the coming months! Enjoy a couple more photos from a memorable night!
There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that avalanches are terrifying. They are one of the purest demonstrations of Mother Nature’s immense, uncontrollable power—and unfortunately, more and more often, they are claiming the lives of people that we love. For the average person, news of a deadly avalanche might congest your newsfeed, but passes on in a few days. For the loved ones of the victims, however, this is never the case, the memory of the life lost will always remain. RELATED: 8 Things I
The west has featured decent high elevation snow this season, with spots like Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee having solid snow coverage, but in general, the early season hasn't been great to the western U.S. In fact, if you were to compare the annual snowfall at Squaw (80 inches YTD) versus Jay Peak in Vermont (185 inches YTD) you might think you were living in an opposite reality. But, fear not, all you West Coast skers and snowboarders, because the flood gates should open this week
Four years ago, Peter Wells came to his brother with an idea: “Let’s start a ski company.” They wrote a business plan, got the money together and put the pedal to the metal. “It takes time to build a brand and get our store out there, and for people to accept a new brand,” Tim Wells told TGR. “But we’re doing it.” The ski industry is changing, and Sego Ski Co. is ready to take advantage of it. Sego is poised for wild growth in a changing industry: In just four seasons they’ve gone from
