Jackson Hole, Wyoming-based KGB Productions has a new ski movie out next fall called Wyoming Triumph, which is all shot in their backyard—the Tetons. We spoke to KGB's Sam Pope about making a local ski movie and how they got the film sponsored by a whiskey company.
The KGB crew goes in search of new terrain and after a day of scouting are rewarded with an amazing pillow zone and all time epic snow conditions
Two years ago we set out on a mission to scout the vast and mostly unskied terrain of our home state, Wyoming. Towns and mountains where more people own an elk rifle than a pair of skis. Following countless broken bones, close calls and getting lost we returned home with a story.
Every year KGB Productions shoots literally hundreds of hours of footage. And although they pour their heart and soul into every shot, in reality only 3 percent of it makes the final cut. The remaining 97 percent ends up on the Cutting Room Floor.
