(Teton Village, Wyo.) - Leading multimedia action sports brand Teton Gravity Research (TGR) continues to direct and produce cutting edge action sports content that communicates with a broad audience. This Sunday, December 11, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. EST, TGR will be featured on NBC's World of Adventure Sports, the Emmy award-winning television show that captures the world's greatest events and behind-the-scenes stories that reveal the passion of those who play on the edge.
The segment documents TGR's annual trip to Alaska during the filming of their 2011 ski film, One For The Road. Despite it being the worst snow year in 40 years, Ian McIntosh, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and Daron Rahlves get the opportunity of a lifetime to ski a handful of first descents near Juneau, Alaska. McIntosh skis at his highest level to date, having a weeklong adrenaline-filled helicopter skiing session with the boys until his season ends with a broken femur. The TGR crew is put to the test as they rescue their friend in the nick of time.
Building upon success with feature films and network and cable television programs, TGR also consults daily with brand marketers seeking new and innovative ways to effectively reach their target market, directing and producing national commercial spots for a wide range of brands.
