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. 

RELATED: 4 Days until the World Premiere of TGR’s latest film Tight Loose. Watch the trailer, find a show near you here.

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.

This time, the guys try 21 different tricks on the same handrail. Oh, and did we mention theres no snow in sight, and the handrail leads straight into a river? Looks like a great way too cool off to us.

Ditched: Speedflyer and Skier Go Head to Head

We’ve all had the following conversation: “you’re still in bed dude? Come on—I’m outside waiting!” There’s always at least one friend who just can’t seem to get their act together when you’re trying to head up for the mountains. Skier Jake Hopfinger and speedflyer Hayes Majerus know this dynamic all too well, in fact, it’s so ingrained into their normal routine that it served as the basis for Benshi Creative’s latest short film, Ditched. Benshi Creative is a two-man team comprised of Cameron

Far Out Places: The Purcell Mountains and British Columbia

In Canada, pilgrimages to backcountry huts are a fairly common pastime during the wintertime. The idea is to use these little structures as a strategic basecamp for foot-powered missions and TGR is no stranger to the remarkable landscape of British Columbia. For this year’s Far Out segment in the Purcell Mountain range, which are home to both world-class heli-skiing and the resort Kicking Horse, we opted to do as the locals do with some Canadian-style hut accommodations. In classic TGR
