Could You Save Your Friend’s Life? - ALMOST LIVE SEASON 7 EPISODE 1 PRESENTED BY GORE-TEX

What would you do if your friend were in an avalanche? Would you be prepared to take control and get them to safety? These are the questions that TGR seeks to answer during its annual International Pro Riders Workshop (IPRW). Once a year all of our athletes and cinematographers converge to learn avalanche rescue technique, wilderness first aid, evacuation procedures, and rope work. This year the event was held at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and conducted by TGR lead guide Kent Scheler and his team along with Exum Guides Zahan Billimoria and Micah Rush.

The athletes also learned about a new technology from AvatechAvatech is integrating technology into snow safety and has developed a revolutionary probe that can map layers in the snowpack. This data is then uploaded to their corresponding website Avanet. Anyone can then access a large amount of snowpit data to make safe travel decisions. The application of this technology has the potential to revolution snow science. So be safe out in the backcountry this winter. Take an avalanche one course, practice with your beacon, have a plan, and ski to come home!

Good to see the TGR crew staying on top of their avvy and first responder skills.

Cowboy: Clayton Vila’s Crested Butte Director’s Cut

For director Clayton Vila, the relationship with Teton Gravity Research has always been a collaborative experience. Unique within action sports filmmaking, Clayton often creates two different cuts from the same TGR segment. One seamlessly aligns with TGR’s snow film, and in his director’s cut, Vila has complete artistic freedom. In fact, before he even stepped behind the lens for Crested Butte segment, Vila was given considerable creative control. The prompt was pretty open-ended with

He might be one of the goofiest skiers in the industry, but Cody Townsend has some serious big mountain chops. Over the years, he has ticked off some seriously gnarly descents all over the globe, but this time, he wants to show off some of his favorite lines closer to home. If you haven’t seen the book on a coffee table somewhere, you’re probably not hanging out with the right crowd. Townsend plans to tick off all 50 of the descents (he’s already done a few, like Denali’s Messner Couloir in
