Teton Gravity Research Top 21 Moments (14): Sage's Early Years, Going Off on Utash’s Pryamid Gap

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!

It was the early 2000’s and Sage Cattabriga-Alosa was just a kid, working as a dishwasher in Utah, and all he wanted to do was ski.
Close range helicopter tracking shots were pretty cutting edge in skiing and snowboarding at the time, and TGR was testing them out at the Pyramid Gap in Utah’s backcountry. Local boys, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and the Collins brothers were there and were excited about the filming concept and on hitting the 90 foot gap.
Sage absolutely crushed. That’s when Todd, Steve, and the rest of the world really learned how bad ass Sage was.
At that point it was apparent that Sage was going to throw down the dishtowel and become who he is today.

 

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.
