Teton Gravity Research Top 21 Moments (1): How Oprah & TGR Got Together in 1996

2016 marks Teton Gravity Research 21st birthday. To celebrate TGR's 21st and the Word Premiere of the new film Tight Loose Teton bring us TGR's Top 21 Moments. 21 days prior to the world premiere on September 17 TGR will launch a video a day highlighting the characters and moments that make TGR what it is today!

While filming for TGR's first ski movie "The Continuum", Todd and Steve Jones had a problem on their hands. They had a great roster of talent, but little budget to travel and showcase these incredible athletes. That led to the brothers mostly filming local locations for their first flick.
Heading to the backside of Grand Targhee Resort, the day resulted in a huckfest of epic proportions. A near miss led TGR co-founder Todd Jones straight into the eyes of Oprah



Teton Gravity Research (TGR) is an extreme sports media company based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.The company was founded in 1996 by brothers Steve and Todd Jones, as well as friends Dirk Collins and Corey Gavitt. The group launched the company to create products that came from the perspective of athletes, showcased youth culture, and fostered the growth of high-risk action sports.
