Nick McNutt Loses $100,000 by one Vote, Lands Spot on TGR Roster Instead

Nick McNutt joined the TGR team full time the year after his standout submission to the Co-Lab contest, where he came within one vote of winning $100,000. His massive switch landings in deep powder and undeniable style got him second place in the contest, and a permanent spot on TGR’s roster.

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

The next season, he filmed in Revelstoke for Almost Ablaze and his stellar performance in the segment won the Whistler-based skier Rookie of the Year. It was very proud moment for TGR, indeed.

Watch the full segment here.

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.
