Posted By: The Ski Channel on August 14, 2014 3:36 pm

Sometimes it’s not the destination that matters; it’s the much more complicated journey. Especially when trying to shoot footage deep in the Alaska backcountry where daylight lasts only a couple hours each morning. In Episode 8 of Teton Gravity Research’s Almost Live, viewers are treated to a behind the scenes look at the detailed process of putting together a TGR production. In hopes of capturing  footage for their new movie Almost Ablaze, the crew hires a beaver equipped with skis, and a helicopter,  just to fly everyone to the location at the crack of dawn. Despite the trek, once the cameras started rolling and skiers Ian McIntosh, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Angel Collinson, and Dana Flahr take to the mountain, the epic footage proves the journey was well worth it.
