Tight Loose premieres in NYC November 10 at the Playstation Theatre
The movie tour for TGR's latest film "Tight Loose" started in September, and continues through January 2017, spreading mad stoke for extreme snow sports across North America and into Norway, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, and Scotland to name a few other places.
Autumn film tours started with Warren Miller's annual ski flick tour, and Teton Gravity Research ups the ante, appealing to a younger more extreme brand of snow sports aficionados. Athletes in the film often appear at the big film premieres, and sponsor companies raffle prizes and toss swag while whipping the audience into a delirious frenzy of pre-season excitement for snow! Lift ticket special offers usually come with each ticket. This snowboard entrepreneur was the impresario for a couple of showings of TGR's "Anomaly" in CT back in 2006!
During 21 years of traveling the globe and pushing the boundaries of what is possible, TGR has experienced the full spectrum of adventure. The process has been a constant evolution of refining a lifestyle—keeping things buttoned up on the front end in order to seize the moment when things get to the edge of control.

"From India to Alaska, discover unridden spine walls, massive airs and full-throttle riding in some of the wildest and most spectacular places on earth. Tight Loose is living to the fullest."
“Tight Loose marks the beginning of a production year involving some of the most significant undertakings in our history,” says TGR’s CEO, Todd Jones. “This movie is not just a huge celebration for us, but is shaping up the beginning of a year for the record books. Twenty was big, but you always remember your twenty-first birthday.”
Following the September 17 world premiere in Jackson will be a worldwide live-event tour throughout the winter of 2016/2017.
