Teton Gravity Research History
In 1995, three fishermen from Alaska dreamed of doing something notable in the world of extreme sports. With the money they collected as commercial fishermen and heli-ski guides, they purchased camera equipment and set off to document the progression of action sports. Soon, they were creating dazzling pieces of work and became instrumental in fueling the growth of the sports they filmed.
21 years later, the company has grown significantly. Teton Gravity Research has created more than 32 films and continues to be a force in action sports culture. Today, they connect with athletes and fans across the world through film tours, a television series, merchandise, and an online blog.
