Teton Gravity Research (TGR) dropped the first major ski trailer of the season this week. The upcoming film, “The Dream Factory,” looks pretty awesome. It’s no secret TGR likes filming in Alaska, but it’s pretty cool to see a full film about the skiing and non-skiing history of Alaska. They picked a hell of a season too.
My ski trip to Chile starts in a week and a half. Pretty good timing. I’m stoked to ski again!
From the official TGR press release (I love that it’s from Teton Village, WY):
New feature-length ski and snowboard film will depict the history and modern progression of freeriding in Alaska.
(Teton Village, Wyo.) – Leading multimedia action sports brand Teton Gravity Research (TGR) announces the release of its upcoming feature-length HD ski and snowboard film, The Dream Factory, and releases the trailer.
For the past 16 years, Teton Gravity Research (TGR) has made the pilgrimage to America’s last frontier, Alaska: The Dream Factory. Throughout history, Alaska has been a place of dreams. From the early gold rush days, to the rise of commercial fishing, to the explosion of the ski and snowboard freeride movement, people have left everything to follow their dreams and journey to this foreign, mystical land. Like the frontiersmen before them, the pioneers of the freeride movement like Doug Coombs, Eric Pehota, and Trevor Petersen made the dream of skiing in Alaska a reality.
Follow TGR’s modern day athletes on this cinematic voyage through Alaska’s awe-inspiring expanse, rich history, and colorful characters. Watch as the TGR crew ventures from AK training grounds Jackson Hole, WY and Pemberton, BC, and delves deep into the Alaskan way of life during last year’s record snowfall in AK, skiing terrain most of us only dream about.
