Skiers Turn Boston Streets Into Playground During Record Breaking Winter

While most Massachusetts residents were digging out from the 68” of snow that fell in February of 2015, TGR Athletes and film crews where turning Boston into an urban terrain park. Skiers Clayton Vila and Cam Riley (Beverly Locals) were able to see the streets of Boston in a whole new light. In order capture Boston skiing in a way never seen before, Todd Jones, TGR’s co-founder and Massachusetts local, used his twenty years behind the lens and a sophisticated piece of filming equipment—a gyro-stabilized system known as the GSS C520¬—mounted to a helicopter and a car. The GSS system is the most advanced camera stabilizing platform in the world. To document this rare Boston skier’s playground, film crews and athletes worked through cold and snowy nights or in the pre-dawn light before businesses would open. In most cases, athletes used winch cables to generate enough speed to propel themselves off the city landscapes. Never before have Boston’s historic landmarks been captured in such a way. Highlight urban features that seen in the film include the Prudential Center, Charlestown, Alewife Station, Redville Station and Beacon Hill. “TGR just wanted to do something special for a city we hold so highly in our hearts”, declares Jones. “I kept hearing about how taxing the snow was on people back in Boston. The incredible amounts of snow were causing people headaches, impacting their day to day life, people were fighting each other for parking spots. We wanted to create something that reminded people how fun snow is, create something positive out of the biggest winter ever in Boston. Every kid remembers the best days growing up were snow days. This segment is a reminder to enjoy what life throws at you.”

A Video Tribute to Erik Roner

Supports Erik's Family: http://www.road2recovery.com/cause-vi... Yesterday TGR and the greater action sports world lost a true legend and incredible human in Erik Roner. The details of his passing can be found in an article written by TGR's own Ryan Dunfee. When deciding how to best remember Roner, the staff instantly thought back to his iconic closing segment of TGR's 2006 film, Tangerine Dream. TGR co-founder Todd Jones reflects on that day: "One year Steve & I were flying in a heli back from Haines when we spotted the line. We shot it and later showed the footage to Roner, he was stoked at the possibility of a ski-BASE. The timing had to be perfect, so we kept monitoring it. The year we were filming for Tangerine Dream, the crew had been in AK for five weeks, and we were about ready to leave. Flying back in the heli we went right past that same line from fours year ago. Steve and I looked at each other and knew we had to call Roner. He was on a plane an hour later. He got in that night; we got dinner, went to bed, and woke up early to check conditions. Fortunately the winds were calm. We got to the cliff, and Roner dropped in. It was the sickest ski BASE ever completed at that time, and he did it flawlessly. By 11 AM, we were sitting on a deck in Juno, eating fish and drinking beer. It was an epic, special moment, with a very good friend, a day were we had this collective dream, concept, and mission that we finally achieved. Now that he is gone, and I reflect on this day, that is what I will miss most; those shared, treasured moments." -TGR Co-Founder Todd Jones  Cover Photo: Chris Bezamat
