A weekend of TGR Goodness
In case you haven’t noticed yet, September is whittling away with a last ditch at summer weather. Oh how glorious it has been! Of course we’ll all take another warm, sunny month with open arms but it won’t be too long before rain arrives and the temperature drops. Winter never comes without Fall first rearing it’s head, and while everyone will be patiently walking through puddles in the Valley it will not be long before we are breaking trail in our own driveways.
To get us through these next weeks before hopefully ANOTHER early opening of the mountain, the ski movie makers are all debuting their latest works. IF3 wrapped up just two weeks ago and the premieres are now touring across North America. This weekend it’s TGR’s turn with Friday night kicking off with Jeremy Jones’ Further, the second installment in his snowboard trilogy Deeper, Further, Higher. Expect the Jones to do what he does best- shred the hell out of remote peaks that no one has ever ridden before and make it look easy.
Saturday night is TGR’s salute to Alaska. Not just filming sick footage up there mind you, The Dream Factory is also an ode to the frontiersmen that first settled in this remote and mystical land and paved the way for the 1991 arrival modern ski and snowboard freeride movement. With segments of this generation of elite ski athlete “warming up” in Jackson Hole, WY and Pemberton, BC, we will no doubt be blown away by the new lines this crew gets to ski in Alaska.
Saturday night is also the celebration marking the 10th Anniversary of Doglotion.com The after party will be rocking at the Longhorn with prizes from Backcountry Snowcats, Mountain Hardwear and a limited edition G3/Doglotion Anniversary skis. In honour of Doglotion founder Jamie Bond, the theme of the party will be GAPER DAY with awards going to the best and worst dressed. Bring your best costumes!
