Sammy Carlson Charges Alaska - My Way of Life

Sammy Carlson charging steep AK lines in our newest film, Way Of Life.

About Way Of Life:
For some, embracing the mountains is not just part of life—it's a way of life. The search for snow shapes not only how they approach these peaks, but also how they approach the world. And whether athletes spend their days dropping first descents in Alaska, lapping the local mountain, or training for the Olympics, they're part of a community built around a shared passion. The bonds that form from this community transcend continents and cultures, transforming strangers into friends. After all, a smile on a powder day needs no translation.

Shot on location in 2013, Teton Gravity Research's Way of Life takes you on a journey to the mountains and inside the minds of today's top athletes. With stunning imagery created with GSS, Red Cinema, and the Sony Action Cam, this film explores the origins of skiing in Austria, the search for original lines in Alaska, and the U.S. Freeskiing Team's quest for Olympic gold. The adventure also leads athletes to the rugged terrain of Jackson Hole and the Tetons, as well as the backcountry of British Columbia. Regardless of the terrain they ride, the athletes featured in Way of Life push the boundaries of what's possible. This journey takes them across the globe as they form a brotherhood that needs no language.

Featured Athletes:
Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Tim Durtschi, Sammy Carlson, Dash Longe, Dana Flahr, Todd Ligare, Griffin Post, Angel Collison, Ian McIntosh, Dylan Hood, John Spriggs, Colter Hinchliffe, Max Hammer, Daniel Tisi, Willie Borm, and the US Olympic Freeskiing Team

The Chairlift: A Love Story

The Chairlift: A Love Story

For those of us who don’t ski with a backpack and a beacon, and prefer going downhill more times a day than up, chairlifts are the MVP of our ski season. Salomon TV’s new film is a love story for those slow, mildly sketchy, but somehow magical double chairs every true ski bum has ridden. Directed by Mike Douglas, reminds us about the experiences unique to riding lifts: connecting with new people, calling down to the skiers below us, or a quiet minute to watch the snow fall. Each ride up is
