Since the dawn of time, everything that has lived and breathed on this planet has been subject to the whims of Mother Nature. The nature of an adventurer is inherently rogue; typically wild in character, subject to the fancy of their imagination. We are unequivocally drawn to nature’s rawest fury and deepest mysteries. These are the irreverent souls who pursue the edge.
In the winter of 2017, the magnitude of winter’s force was on full display. Telephone poll-snapping storms pounded the Wyoming landscape. Regions to the west, recently left arid and forgotten, were gifted with unprecedented accumulation. Blizzards in Europe buried towns in an instant before disappearing just as fast, leaving the lucky few who were there to wonder if it even happened. A Bolivian expedition found grace above 18,000 feet before the elements went rogue and the humans reluctantly heeded warnings from above.
Join the TGR team as they embark on an adventure filled with fury and glory, and witness the unimaginable.
Come join us to celebrate TGR’s 21st Birthday. The tighter your show the looser you can be. With over 21 years of traveling the globe and pushing the boundaries of what is possible we have experienced the full spectrum of adventure. It has been a constant evolution of refining a lifestyle – keeping things as buttoned-up on the front end in order to seize the moment when things reach the edge of control. Our latest film “Tight Loose” is TGR’s highest achievement to date. From India to Alaska, come join us as we discover unridden spine walls, massive airs, and full throttle riding in some of the wildest and most spectacular places on earth. Witness the 21-year athlete roster as they come together for a reunion-style massive group shred of the Palisades at Squaw Valley. Tight Loose is living to the fullest!
Teton Gravity Research made a full segment with Sammy Carlson’s best shots from their latest movie ‘Way Of Life’. Sammy has proved to be one of the most versatile skiers by both scoring gnarly Alaskan lines and hitting huge big air jumps.
Teton Gravity Research and Carlson have just announced the ultimate dream project – a two-year film effort focused extensively on next-level cinematography and Hollywood-like production quality. The Sammy C Project – an internal working title at TGR until a final film name is chosen, will be released in fall 2015. If Carlson’s winning 2013 X Games Real Ski Backcountry edit is a forecast of his future in film, the project looks promising.
Best male performance? Although this sounds like an award bestowed by the adult entertainment industry, Tim Durtschi scored this accolade last December in the Powder Awards for his part in TGR’s Way of Life. Whether dropping pillows in B.C. or spinning into spine lines in Alaska, Durtschi was on a rampage. Here’s his full part from this years Teton Gravity Research Movie – Way of Life.
