Teton Gravity Research announces the trailer release for its 22nd annual ski and snowboard film, “Rogue Elements,” presented by REI. This year’s film encompasses the inherently rogue nature of the athlete adventurers featured in the film, and the wild elements that they faced throughout the winter of 2017.

“Since the dawn of time, everything that has lived and breathed on this planet has been subject to the whims of Mother Nature. The nature of an adventurer is inherently rogue; typically wild in character, subject to the fancy of one’s imagination. Humans are unequivocally drawn to nature’s rawest fury and deepest mysteries. These are the irreverent souls who pursue the edge,” according to Teton Gravity Research in a press release.

“In the winter of 2017, the magnitude of winter’s force was on full display. Telephone poll-snapping storms pounded the Wyoming landscape. Regions to the west, recently left arid and forgotten, were gifted with unprecedented accumulation. Blizzards in Europe buried towns in an instant before disappearing just as fast, leaving the lucky few who were there to wonder if it even happened. A Bolivian expedition found grace above 18,000 feet before the elements went rogue and the humans reluctantly heeded warnings from above,” according to TGR.

Doors for the Squaw Valley show on Sept. 23 open at 6 p.m. and tickets are on sale now for $12 advance, $15 at the door, and $5 for ages 16 and younger.

The Oct. 12 show in Reno is at 8 p.m. with doors open at 7. Tickets are $10 for all ages. | Tickets
