Teton Gravity Research (TGR) Releases Trailer For New Snowboarding Film Flying High Again

August 23, 2023

Renowned Director Mike Hatchett Gets Behind the Lens for Long-Awaited Feature

Jackson, Wyo. /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Teton Gravity Research (TGR), the global leader in action and adventure lifestyle media, has unveiled the trailer for its latest snowboard film Flying High Again, the company’s long-awaited collaboration with pioneering snowboard film director Mike Hatchett, founder of Standard Films.

Flying High Again is the culmination of the decades-long relationship between Hatchett and TGR co-founders Todd and Steve Jones. Hatchett met the Jones brothers in Alaska in 1995, and the trio forged a bond in the mountains and on film that includes introducing innovators such as Johan Olofsson and Jeremy Jones to audiences in the early days of their careers.

Check out the official trailer here.

“The original goal was to make the best snowboard film we could, and really focus on the athletes being the stars,” Hatchett said. “We wanted to make a rider-based movie and let the athletes do the talking. It is a mix of freestyle and big-mountain riding.”

Hatchett and TGR’s filmmaking pedigree — which includes the Emmy-nominated original television series Higher TV and the award-winning film trilogy Deeper, Further, and Higher — is on display throughout Flying High Again, TGR’s ninth feature-length snowboard film.

Locations include Idaho’s unspoiled riches, the world-famous backcountry that surrounds Lake Tahoe, deep runs in Utah’s featherlight powder, mind-melting lines in TGR’s Wyoming backyard, and more. The winter of 2022-23 was record-breaking across much of North America, and Flying High Again reaps the rewards of a stellar season.

“We focused on melding cinematography, bold riding, and a killer soundtrack to showcase some of the world’s most renowned snowboarders in some of the wildest terrain imaginable,” Steve Jones said.

Hatchett and TGR enlisted athletes Bode Merrill, John Jackson (above), Danny Davis, Elena Hight, Jeremy Jones, and many more in a showcase of the very best snowboarding that exists today. You can find the full list of athletes and a complete list of tour dates at TetonGravity.com/FlyingHighAgain.
