Teton Gravity Research Top 21 Moments (19): The Story Behind TGR's First Fantasy Camp

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!

After countless seasons in Alaska, TGR's athletes were longing to see what was beyond the heli-boundary. First descents and fresh spine lines lay just over the next horizon, but how to get to there? The answer... Fantasy Camp, a small town of walled tents set up deep in Alaska bush, the perfect base-camp for any group of skiers and snowboarders.
What followed was a good old-fashioned tee off session, with athletes like Tim Durtschi putting together a segment worthy of Powder Video Award.

 

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.
