“What would happen if two skiers robbed a bank?” That’s the question Benshi Creative’s Caleb Chicoine and Alex D’Agostino asked themselves after spending a summer working as editors for TGR in Jackson Hole. It’s rare that ski films have an underlying message, and it’s even rarer that there are real plots with twists and turns in them – but that’s exactly what Parkin Costain and Jake Hopfinger have done with the crew over at Benshi Creative. Dollar Short, their 12-minute short film with an unexpected moral story built in, captures everything we love about skiing – dreaming big, failing spectacularly, and picking up the pieces to aim even higher. It’s available to watch on TGRtv now!
We’re excited to debut the trailer for our latest film collaboration with Patagonia, . The short film profiles Teton-based IFMGA guide Zahan Billimoria, who's safely guided our athletes in the alpine. His insight and experience with the mountains immensely helped on projects like and . With this film, we explore Zahan’s backstory, with hopes of engaging in the broader conservation about risk and rewards in the mountains. Join us at 5 PM PDT on Sun., Dec. 10 for the premiere with a live Q&A
I think we can all agree that Nick McNutt is one of the most fun skiers to watch in the world. Whether it’s dropping unfathomably tall pillow stacks, spinning off cliffs, or landing backwards in pow on his Atomic Bent Chetler 120s, he makes it all look easy. It’s probably the years of experience he’s gained in the type of terrain that encourages that kind of skiing, or maybe it’s some sort of god-given talent. But either way, we’re always fired up for McNutt to be a part of our team. This
Bobby Brown reminds us once again that he's a master of all ski disciplines. One week, he’s hucking features in the backcountry, the next, he’s showing us his skills in the park. This top-to-bottom park edit of Bobby has us googly-eyed over his hand drags and 540’s. Seems like a bluebird day riding rails at Breckenridge is just what the doctor ordered for those early season blues, and Bobby Brown is serving it up.
