Teton Gravity Research’s new film Re:Session will premiere this Saturday, September 19, on TGR’s home turf: Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

“It’s time. The season is coming,” said Dave Hudascko, the film’s tour director. He’s most excited to watch Erik Roner ski BASE-jump off of a 500-foot cliff in Haines, Alaska. The cliff Roner dropped has recently been renamed McConkey’s Thumb in tribute to Shane McConkey.

A crew of the film’s athletes including Seth Morrison, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, and Dana Flahr are already camped out in Jackson waiting for the showing. Additionally, all the filmmakers are coming and they’re each bringing their favorite still shot from the movie. The photos will be auctioned off to raise money for the Bridger Teton Avalanche Center.

If you can’t make it on Saturday check out other tour dates and watch the trailer here.

Check out the film trailer below, and our interivew with KGB producer Sam Pope on the next few slides.Most ski films travel all over the world to get footage. But you stayed in Wyoming. Why was that? Sam Pope: This concept developed over several years of taking small trips here and there around Wyoming, including  the Wind Rivers, the Wyoming Range, the Snake River Range, the Gros Ventres, the Absorokas, even the west side of the Tetons. We began to realize that there was something special here. The other part of it is just what you said. Other production companies are going on these insanely exotic ski trips all over the world. We want to make the point that we have terrain that good, right here in our backyard of Wyoming. Kind of a "keep it local" thing. The skiing just as good, but the experience is a little more organic. And that's important to us.
