TGR's AK scene was originally based in Valdez, but after five years, the boys were hungry for a new zone. Todd and Steve were hitchhiking through Alaska trying to get on a commercial fishing boat when they spotted this zone in Haines.
They didn't come back to in until eight years later, but they brought their best line-up, two of the best AK big mountain boarders at the time, Jeremy Jones, and Johan Olofsson.
Anytime when the stars align in AK is a good day for athletes and filmers. This particular day was especially memorable for Todd and Steve.
Jeremy and Johan went totally ballistic, and were putting down first descent after first descent—all with perfect conditions, light, and heli time to spare.
