Every year I have filmed with TGR I have dedicated the fall season to promoting the film by traveling with the film tour. TGR is based out of Wilson, WY so Jackson Hole resort is the perfect location for the world premeire. It is always a good time, 99% of the athletes and production team join together for a week of celebration that includes a golf tournament, team dinner and an athlete summit. After a week of festivities at home base, the film is quick to make showings in neighboring states and come December it has played all around the USA and world. I make a schedule and try to make it to as many local stops as possible as well as some far off shows as my budget allows. Thankfully my sponsors like Atomic value that I make it to shows and meet the fans who support these films.
Last season took me on an adventurous road trip along the California coast with stops in San Francisco San Diego and Los Angeles. I rented a car and made the trip with Todd Ligarre and good friend Goost. This season took me to the East Coast. Almost ablaze premiered in Manhatten and downtown Boston in mid-November so I flew over along with John and Angel Collinson, Dylan and dash and the mastermind of TGR, Todd Jones. It is really great to have a bunch of the crew going to these shows with you because you get to hang out outside the skiing realm of things. Exploring new cities with good friends is the best, this was my first trip to NYC. I took advantage of the opportunity and after attending the films I was able to see the sites. I made it to a NY Rangers Hockey game, went up the Empire State building and watched my hero Neil Degrasse Tyson at a live taping of his podcast Star Talk.
The new film name hasn’t officially been announced from TGR yet but I have seen some hashtags floating around that have hinted at the name on instagram. The tour for 2015 will also be announced soon so look out for a stop near your hometown!
