TGR Announces 2010 Ski Film, Light The Wick, Shot using Film, HD and 3D Technology

The award-winning producers at Teton Gravity Research (TGR) present their newest ski film, Light The Wick. Shot using film, HD and 3D technology, Light The Wick is about sparking the flame and watching the world's best athletes blast off.

This winter the TGR crew of athletes and cinematographers captured the most jaw-dropping footage ever witnessed. The team travelled around the world to uncharted destinations, as well as some of their favourite stomping grounds. Follow the crew as they discover the previously unskied big mountain playground of Petersburg, AK, find the best snow Croatia has seen in fifty years, ski deep pillows in undiscovered Italy, hit full throttle riding in British Columbia, and experience epic free-riding at Ripley Creek and North Cascades Heli. Don't miss Sammy Carlson and the Stevens Pass 3D experiment, the first ever 3D ski segment. The groundbreaking dual RED One slow motion arial shots will make you want to reach out and touch the action. Light The Wick showcases the most talented and well-rounded athletes in skiing together in one must-see film.

Athletes: Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Seth Morrison, Kye Petersen, Ian McIntosh, Dana Flahr, Dylan Hood, Sammy Carlson, Dash Longe, Rachael Burks, Callum Pettit, Wiley Miller, Erik Roner, Cody Townsend, Todd Ligare, Chris Benchetler, Shroder Baker, Daron Rahlves, Byron Wells, John Spriggs and friends

Locations: Croatia, La Thuile Italy, Petersburg AK, Pemberton BC, Last Frontier Heli Skiing, Jackson Hole WY, North Cascade Heli Skiing, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, Grand Targhee WY and Stevens Pass WA

The event is hosted by snowusa.com and will include prize giveaways, the film premiere on a giant screen, and an after-party featuring a DJ and additional ski action in what should be an epic night.
