Greg Epstein on TGR’s Almost Ablaze
TGR's nonstop travel, mic'ing athletes, and Italy's record deep winter
TGR let winter keep them on their toes this year. With a crew of their standby athletes and a handful of talented newcomers, TGR put together a film focused on foot-powered trips and highlighting the challenges and fear that come with big-mountain skiing. We caught up with supervising producer Greg Epstein to learn a little more about their epic season.
VIDEO: Jaron Stadler’s Skills
La Familia and 4Reelmedia give us Stadler's season in two minutes
Jaron Stadler’s season edit is called the J-CHRONicles. And on the Vimeo page, he gives a shoutout to his sponsors, including Tall T Productions. Which is just amazing. Tall Ts and baggy, unzipped jackets are great. We could never pull them off—don’t think we have enough of those chronic skillz. But Stadler does. Watch him shred the park with steez in this edit, brought to you by La Familia and 4REELmedia.

Junk in the Trunk: Mammut Zephir Altitude Harness
Rope up with a lightweight harness for your high alpine ski treks
The Zephir Altitude met all my basic criteria for a ski mountaineering harness: lightweight, a belay loop, and the ability to take on and off with skis on. After using this harness over the past year and a half, I am a full convert.

The One Meter Party
Dispatch from Australia's record deep winter
As I write I have a faint tremor. My eyes divert to the blizzard outside and I am reminded that tomorrow there are no excuses. It is time to go big and ski hard. It is time for the one-meter party.
Video: The Best End of the Season Video of All Time
Pat and Tats sing Bohemian Rhapsody, ski Independence Pass, and call it a day
Pat and Tats summed up the end of another great season in an edit released two days ago. As always, these guys do skiing right: singing Bohemian Rhapsody wildly en route to Independence Pass, Colorado, slogging up hill, dressing down to American Flag board shorts, and savoring sweet, sweet turns. Cheers to another great season, Pat and Tats.
