Dream of winter action with TGR film premiere events
Get ready, Bozeman! On Friday and Saturday, September 24th and 25th, join Teton Gravity Research at the Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture to experience the new ski and snowboard film, Stoke the Fire, on the big screen. This will be thee kick-off celebration for all winter sport aficionados.
TGR’s 26th annual film release explores its athletes’ evolution within skiing and the pure joy that manifests from that process. The stoke means different things to different people based on where they are in their evolution. For some it’s about committing to a new world, a lifestyle and the friendships that blossom from that commitment. The choice to enter this world is a spark, and with every new experience the fire grows.
With more knowledge comes more exploration, both physically and geographically, that helps to understand what those raw experiences connected with nature do for the soul. With more experience an examination of our shared history becomes important, and ultimately some of us might want to test our limits at the upper echelon of what is possible by drawing upon the sum of our knowledge and experiences. While the answers we find are different for everyone, the pursuit of this evolution is something sacred, the pursuit is what stokes the fire.
Stoke the Fire will screen at the Emerson Center on Sept. 24th and 25th, with early 6:30pm showings and late shows to follow at 9pm. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 day of show, and $10 for youth 16 and under. Doors at 6pm and 8:30pm, respectively. Visit www.tetongravity.com to reserve your parking spot.
Whether you choose to come to the family-friendly early show or to get rowdy at the late show, it’s sure to be a great night. As always, there will be athlete appearances and a ton of prize giveaways from Sierra Nevada, YETI, Tincup Whiskey, The North Face, Atomic, Volkl and others! Plus, everyone in attendance will have a shot at the tour grand prizes including a trip to TGR’s hometown Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
