About the Film
For some, embracing the mountains is not just part of lifeâ€”itâ€™s a way of life. The search for snow shapes not only how they approach these peaks, but also how they approach the world. And whether athletes spend their days dropping first descents in Alaska, lapping the local mountain, or training for the Olympics, theyâ€™re part of a community built around a shared passion. The bonds that form from this community transcend continents and cultures, transforming strangers into friends. After all, a smile on a powder day needs no translation.
Shot on location in 2013, Teton Gravity Researchâ€™s Way of Life takes you on a journey to the mountains and inside the minds of todayâ€™s top athletes. With stunning imagery created with GSS, Red Cinema, and the Sony Action Cam, this film explores the origins of skiing in Austria, the search for original lines in Alaska, and the U.S. Freeskiing Teamâ€™s quest for Olympic gold. The adventure also leads athletes to the rugged terrain of Jackson Hole and the Tetons, as well as the backcountry of British Columbia. Regardless of the terrain they ride, the athletes featured in Way of Life push the boundaries of whatâ€™s possible. This journey takes them across the globe as they form a brotherhood that needs no language.
