“Skiing the Dark Side of Olympic History” from TGR’s Almost Ablaze Film

Teton Gravity Research announces the release its film Almost Ablaze on iTunes. Almost Ablaze won "Film of the Year" at the 2014 International Freeski Film Festival. To celebrate, we are releasing the gritty urban Sarajevo segment, featuring Olympic gold medalist Joss Christensen, Karl Fostvedt and Chris Laker skiing the remains of the 1984 Sarajevo Olympic venue. 

“Sochi was criticized for its hastily-built and exuberant infrastructure, whose lack of potential for long-term use barely justified the environmental degradation its construction wrought,” writes Sam Morse in his article accompanying the release of this Sarajevo segment. “The now-dilapidated venues in Sarajevo, which hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics, were marked by disuse and destroyed by war, provoking eerie parallels to the criticisms made of Sochi’s future. With Oslo recently withdrawing its bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics, the trip validated plenty of the concerns that have caused a decline in public support for hosting the Winter Games.”

Buy the film on Itunes & Blu-Ray/DVD here.

Dad Makes Hilarious Song About Forcing Kids to Ski

Artist and ski dad Lif' Ticket just released a hilarious new song about forcing his kids to ski. Everyone who has the privilege of learning to ski at a young age has their parents to thank for getting them into the sport.  This isn't Lif' Ticket's first song. Last year he released an equally funny track about getting older, shortened ski days, and putting the bar down.

Earlier this season, Tatum Monod took a bad fall while skiing and blew up her knee. This was the second winter in a row Monod suffered a season-ending knee injury. "My meniscus was torn, flipped upside down and lodged into where my ACL should be," she wrote on her Instagram back in April.   Now, she is hard at work and making tons of progress with rehab. And in her free time, she's feeding her soul by fishing with her dad.
