Here's what Kai Jones has to say about his role in TGR's new snow film Make Believewhich is now available for digital download.

This should be music to the ears of all the New Englanders out there. NFL superstar Rob Gronkowski is joining the Pit Viper Experts Only Pro Team. Even TGR co-founder Todd Jones is stoked about it, saying, “As New Englanders, we watched Gronk help us win multiple Super Bowls. It's good to see him out west getting loose with the Pit Viper crew. Hopefully, next time he will come to Jackson and let us show him around the home lab.” From Pit Viper: Over a weekend in March, the Gronkowski family

Sure, statistics like the fact that the snowpack on France’s Porte Pass has decreased by 40 percent in three decades, the average winter temperature increasing by a full degree, and many more might get the attention of some, but at this point maybe we do need

Ouch. It’s one thing to be skiing and riding as aggressively as the athletes on the Freeride World Tour, and it’s an entirely different thing to be crashing as hard as they (sometimes) do. Competing at the highest level leaves very little margin for error, and that’s pretty clear if you watch some of the bails from the 2021 Tour. There’s everything from 60-0 in a matter of inches (shoutout Aymar Navarro and that snowbank) to folks going SPLAT off gigantic airs (shoutout everyone else). Hope
