Just as it feels that it can't get any hotter here in Northern Utah, we finally get a break. Not a break for the 100 degree heat, but a break from the mental state this heat has brought with it.
Teton Gravity Research just released the trailer for their upcoming ski and snowboard film titled The Dream Factory.
For the past 16 years, Teton Gravity Research 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 a record snowfall year in AK, skiing terrain most of us only dream about.
If you too are feeling the heat today, take 3:37 out of your day and cool off a bit. Winter might still be months away but this is guaranteed to give you a little bit of a shiver.
