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.

​The Soundtrack of Shred: A Brief History of ODESZA & TGR

What’s the first band that comes to mind when you think about the TGR’S films? A few might come to mind, but if you really sit down and crunch the numbers, the answer might surprise you. The electronic duo, ODESZA, and Teton Gravity Research have a long standing relationship. One might say it all began after a night at the Mangy Moose in 2014, but Jackson local and ODESZA manager Adam Foley said that it’s been a thing of fate for the two powerhouses to collaborate since the conception of
