Each year around this time, skiers and snowboarders start to pine for new gear, check out long range forecasts, and get pumped for the new TGR film. This year’s offering, Deeper, is an awesome ( and we really mean it…) collaboration between 1% member Teton Gravity Research and 1% non-profit recipient Protect Our Winters (POW), featuring an all star roster of big mountain riders including POW’s founder, Jeremy Jones. This full circle partnership strives to create a greener winter sports industry by protecting the environment that inspires the riders.
On foot, 65 miles from civilization, braving sub zero temperatures, and fighting week-long storms, Deeper places a handful of world’s premier snowboarders in hot pursuit of the ultimate in big mountain riding while leaving the helicopters and their emissions at home. “The Deeper crew put cameras in places and in conditions you could never imagine. It is the ultimate first-hand experience and the most insane riding I have ever seen,” said TGR co-founder, Steve Jones.
Along with fellow 1% members Tactics, Venture Snowboards, Clif, and Volcom, TGR’s partnership with POW is leading the winter sports industry towards a more sustainable future. Deeper hits the road this fall–check here for a screening near you–we’ll see you out there!
