• Thursday, Nov. 7, two shows, 6 p.m., 8:30 p.m.

 

Teton Gravity Research filmed with Red Mountain for the new film, Way of Life, and so its only appropriate that they brought the tour to Rossland for a blowout evening of ski porn, cold beers and winter stoke.

Shot on location in 2013, Teton Gravity Research’s takes you on a journey to the mountains and inside the minds of today’s top athletes. With imagery created with GSS, Red Cinema and the Sony Action Cam, the film explores the origins of skiing in Austria, the search for original lines in Alaska, and the U.S. Freeskiing Team’s quest for Olympic gold.

The adventure also leads athletes to the rugged terrain of Jackson Hole and the Tetons, as well as the backcountry of Rossland and other parts of B.C.

This journey takes them across the globe as they form a brotherhood that needs no language, said the film’s producer and TGR’s supervising producer, Greg Epstein.

“After all, a smile on a powder day needs no translation,” he said in a press release.

The crew arrived in Rossland Feb. 16 and stayed until March 3 and then went up north to Nelson and Kaslo for two weeks.

According to the webisode information, the crew went from the “powder caked slopes of Red Mountain, to the steep lines of Stellar Heli Skiing and the endless pillow lines at Selkirk Wilderness Skiing. Living in the mountains in this region of British Columbia truly defines a Way of Life.”

Way of Life premiered in mid September in Jackson Hole. The film tour has hit most major ski areas, cities and towns in the U.S. and Canada.

A three-minute webisode on Rossland (at www.tetongravity.com, season five, episode eight) and Red Mountain is on the Internet.

If you’re 19 or older, be sure to stick around for the official after-party at Rafters featuring The Strumbellas.

Tickets are on sale at tickets.tetongravity.com or pick up at Powderhound Sports or Rossvegas Boardshop. Cost is $10 in advance, $15 at the door. After-party ticket is $10 in advance, or $15 at the door, with a $20 combo ticket (movie and after-party).
