TGR Live: Ski With Sam Smoothy

We recently went live with Sam Smoothy at the TGR Continuum Hotel and Bar Experience, his home base while filming for our next snow film. After a stint on the New Zealand beaches, he heard about Jackson Hole's past and upcoming powder cycles and decided to hop a plane and storm chase. "I've had a great time with a great crew, showing me all these hidey holes," he says, in awe of the constant deluge of snow.

If you want to experience snow 'up over your beard,' as Sam would say, shoot us an email at TGRexperience@tetongravity.com in order to book a full day of skiing or riding at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort with Sam. 

For $500 per person, up to three people can reserve the unbeatable opportunity to ski a full 9:00am-4:00pm day with Sam followed by some apres ski at the Continuum for a "perfect day." Get in touch while he's still in town!

Throwback: Sammy Carlson Spinning Switch Off a Ski-Flying Jump

How many of us have watched ski jumping in the Olympics and thought about how cool it would be to see freestylers hit that same jump? Probably a good few, at least. Luckily for us, there's no need to use our imaginations—Sammy Carlson did it back in 2015 while filming with TGR for .

It's rare that we see a completely novel, thought-provoking piece of media in the ski world. In fact, most ski films are the opposite of thought-provoking, unless you count "Damn, that was a big cliff" as an insightful thought. The closest many flicks get to "deep" is an ironic or unintentionally-ironic nature shot paired with a voiceover quote about the "call of the mountains" or the "importance of protecting our environment" or "how humbling it is to be so small in such a huge landscape."

Since its founding in 1941, Alta's Ski Patrol has become one of the foremost avalanche safety departments in the industry. The organization was the first in North America to use howitzers in avalanche mitigation, and was home to the continent's first avalanche dog. Considering that dogs and explosives are two of the coolest parts of being a ski patroller, those are pretty solid claims to fame, at least in our opinion.
