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.

About TGR's Top 21 Moments:

This year, TGR turns 21 years old. To celebrate, we're resurfacing TGR founders, Todd and Steve Jones', favorite moments from filming over the last 21 years—the moments that made TGR what it is today.

So call your dad today and tell him thanks: Without him, none of this would be possible.

12-Year-Old Kai Jones Doesn’t Need Snow To Rip

After an absolutely epic winter season, skiing big lines all over the Tetons and winning the U12 North American IFSA Junior Freeride Tour, 12-year-old Kai Jones was nowhere near done. Peeking out the car window on a roadtrip with his family, Kai noticed some sand dunes in the distance, and decided to go explore them, skis in tow. Kai Jones would also like to remind all groms to enter the 2018 TGR Grom Contest The St. Anthony Sand Dunes, situated in Idaho just west of the Tetons, offered

​Tim Durtschi, Owen Leeper, and Co. Send Beartooth’s Road Gap

Tim Durtschi and friends Owen Leeper, Sasha Motivala, and Amon Barker went up to Beartooth Basin this weekend and celebrated summer skiing with a good ol’ road gap, right over the Beartooth Highway. Some bystanders were so amused they stopped to take out their cameras and film the guys, including a news reporter. If you don't know this crew and their skiing abilities, the surprise and shock of turning a corner of the pass to see them flying over the highway and landing in the snow on
