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.

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.

YETI’s isn’t your normal ski film. In fact, there’s actually not a single shot of actual skiing in it. But for anyone who’s ever been on a ski expedition, or planned on, or even dreamt about going on one, you’ll recognize the power of the unknown. One little thought can lead to a photo, which will lead to a storm of ideas that can eventually culminate in the experience of a lifetime.

100-year businesses don't exist. The retail industry is dead. In the rugged White Mountains of northern New Hampshire, neither of those statements are true. North America’s oldest ski shop, Lahout’s, has remained open 365 days a year since 1920. While e-commerce and conglomerates have stripped the country of local, independent retailers, a family of Lebanese immigrants have prevailed for a century, beating the Great Depression, World War II, the Dot Com Crash and the Great Recession.

Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of the important things in life. And when life revolves around skiing, we tend to get caught up in it and can forget what it's all about. More than anything, skiing is meant to be fun. And that’s exactly what the new short film chronicling the adventures of skiers Cody Cirillo and Kellyn Wilson’s 1962 school bus nicknamed the Honey House Bus. It’s a real Wes Anderson-y flick, just with a lot more snow. To watch the full film, sign up for the digital tour
