Teton Gravity Research has always been on the cutting edge of action sports film production. Over the years we have learned one thing: it’s not just the cameras and gadgets that make it all happen, it’s the people that carry them into the mountains to capture their friends pushing the limits that truly make what we do possible. That’s why this year we wanted to do something special for the 2020 Winter TGR Grom Comp presented by GoPro. By adding a new Best Production category, we set out to find not just the best up-and-coming ski and snowboard talent, but also the next generation of filmmakers who work hard to showcase the dream.

The skiing in Pemberton, British Columbia, is what Sam Smoothy likes to call “big game hunting.” It's got the gnar factor of Chamonix — and you don't even have to leave North America.

100-year businesses don't exist. The retail industry is dead. In the rugged White Mountains of northern New Hampshire, neither of those statements are true. North America’s oldest ski shop, Lahout’s, has remained open 365 days a year since 1920. While e-commerce and conglomerates have stripped the country of local, independent retailers, a family of Lebanese immigrants have prevailed for a century, beating the Great Depression, World War II, the Dot Com Crash and the Great Recession.
