Griffin Post Hammers the East Face of the Middle Teton

Griffin’s Teton segment in TGR’s Way of Life is effing mind-blowing. There is just no other way to describe it. (Except for maybe aggressive, calculated, and fast.)

The East Face of the Middle is such a big, high-consequence ski mountaineering line and Griffin skied the thing like it was at the resort. He hammered it without stopping from top to bottom — over 1000 feet of full throttle ripping. Even Zahan Billimoria, who’d been guiding big lines in the Tetons for 10 years at the time, had never seen anything like it.

RELATED: 5 days until the premiere of TGR's new film Tight Loose. Watch the trailer and get tickets here. 

Griffin would follow this line by the same style of descent on Mount Moran, and Apocolypse Couloir — eventually making him known for his remarkable Teton skiing.

Take A Look Into Bobby Brown’s Wild One-Shot Mammoth Run

Last winter freeskier Bobby Brown teamed up with famed follow cam filmer Matt Cook–AKA "Ski Chef"–to film a flowy top-to-bottom park line down Mammoth Mountain entirely in one take. Brown claimed it was one of the most difficult film projects he's ever undertaken, just because of all the variables. Everything had to go perfect, from the jumps they had built to the wind, Matt keeping up with Bobby, and then Bobby actually landing all the tricks.  Imagine linking together a run of tricks from

Karl Fostvedt and Lucas Wachs have become renowned for having some of the most playful styles and biggest sets of cajones in backcountry skiing. Last year the two teamed up with filmer Jasper Newton and the Good Company crew to film their first short film "Barking at the Door". The duo of Lucas and Karl's skiing combined with Jasper's eye and the Good Company production makes for one the most entertaining and eye-popping ski films of late. The boys hit the iconic Chad's Gap jump, where Karl
