TGR Athletes Send It Into Corbet’s Couloir

Corbet's Couloir is often named as North America's most iconic and difficult inbounds ski run. The jewel of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, it appears ominously to anyone riding the famous red box to the top of Rendezvous Peak. 

First skied by local ski patroller Lonnie Ball in 1967, it has since become the benchmark of which all Jackson skiers compare themselves.

During one day in 2011, a crew of athletes, the youngest only 13, took to Corbet’s Couloir to film a segment for TGR’s The Dream Factory.

What occurred was uniquely Jackson Hole, and uniquely TGR, with athletes from the old and newschool showcasing what makes Corbet's so timeless. With a new generation proving themselves and the old guard standing their ground, this day will remain in TGR's collective conscious forever. 

Find out what went into filming the session.

“It’s a bit exposed,” says Jacob Wester casually as he stares down a knife like edge on the Forbes Arete of the Aiguille de Chardonnet in Chamonix. A bit? While that’s a complete understatement for the majority of us, skier Jacob Wester has become fairly accustomed to skiing extreme faces and steep couloirs.

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.

In fact, before he even stepped behind the lens for Crested Butte segment, Vila was given considerable creative control. The prompt was pretty open-ended with
