Order The Dream Factory Now For the past 16 years, Teton Gravity Research has made the pilgrimage to America’s last frontier, Alaska: The Dream Factory. Throughout history, Alaska has been a place of dreams. From the early gold rush days, to the rise of commercial fishing, to the explosion of the ski and snowboard freeride movement, people have left everything to follow their dreams and journey to this foreign, mystical land. Like the frontiersmen before them, the pioneers of the freeride movement like Doug Coombs, Eric Pehota, and Trevor Petersen made the dream of skiing in Alaska a reality.Follow TGR's modern day athletes on this cinematic voyage through Alaska's awe-inspiring expanse, rich history, and colorful characters. Watch as the TGR crew ventures from AK training grounds Jackson Hole, WY, and Pemberton, BC, and delves deep into the Alaskan way of life during a record snowfall year in AK, skiing terrain most of us only dream about.Starring: Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Dash Longe, Dana Flahr, Tim Durtschi, Seth Morrison, Erik Roner, Chris Benchetler, Todd Ligare, Griffin Post, Ralph Backstrom, Daron Rahlves, Angel Collinson, Matt Philippi, Clayton Vila, Cam Riley, Dylan Hood, John Spriggs, Rory Bushfield, Max Hammer, Nick Martini, Dave Treadway, Maxim Arsenault, Forrest Shearer, Daniel TisiOn Location: Jackson Hole, WY / Valdez, AK / Haines, AK / Anchorage, AK / Whittier, AK / Northern Chugach, AK / Valdez Heli Ski Guides / Alyeska Resort / SEABA Heli / Alaska Heli Skiing / Girdwood, AK / Pemberton, BCMusic: Dane Short & Kris Dirksen, "Gears of Death" | Mannequin Men, "Flying Blind" | c65, "Let's Go"Go To The Dream Factory PageGet Film Tour Info
If this is the level of riding we are seeing in Freeride World Qualifier rounds, I can't even imagine what next year’s FWT will look like. The 2017 French Freeride Champion Mickael Bimboes sent his way down a few FWQ rounds, stacking up this footy along the way. Inspired by the likes of Leo Slemett, he managed to qualify himself to ski alongside the big boys next year. Check out his 2017 competition season edit.
Mammoth’s Bernie Rosow yet again shows his ability to slay super-technical ski mountaineering lines. These are the kind of lines that typically require a fair amount of climbing up scary steep snow to even get to, yet Rosow doesn't seem to mind simply pointing ‘em at the top and riding at full speed.Granted, with California’s epic winter and seemingly bottomless snowpack, all these lines are still shredable deep into summer.
Cody Cirillo is making the most of skiing in June. In this edit, he completes 10 tricks on 10 different features in two hours. My favorite trick is when Banks Gilberti make him do a Zeach (any rail maneuver) in ski boots on a snowboard.
