The Great Falls Ski and Board Club invites you to take a wild mountain-carving adventure without leaving the comfort of the indoors on Wednesday with the showing of Teton Gravity Research Group’s latest film “Far Out,” presented by the REI Co-Op.

The film will be shown at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center with doors opening at 6 and the show starting at 7 p.m.

“Far Out,” according to the official release for the film, joins the TGR crew on, “one of its boldest missions ever.” The high-flying adventurers take on journeys such as the unexplored Albanian Alps, the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia and the Crazy Mountains here in Montana. The film features such well-known skiing icons as  Ian McIntosh, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, and Angel Collinson, among others.

The film also features 11-year-old Kai Jones carving up the slopes at Jackson Hole, Wyo., and a look at the “alien landscape” of Girdwood, Alaska, among other scenes taken by the skiers and boarders themselves.

According to the release, “Far Out,” “embodies the imagination as much as it does a physical space. It is the quest to seek out undiscovered realms and inspire new waves of creativity, enlightenment and progression. It is the quest to be blown away.”

TGR was founded in 1995 by Todd and Steve Jones. On its website, Todd Jones describes the company, saying, “TGR represents fun—a lifestyle of adrenaline, evolution, and delving into the unknown. TGR showcases the most progressive riding on the planet through the most cutting edge production technology.”

Based in Jackson Hole, Wyo., TGR has produced 32 ski, snowboard and surf films.

Tickets for the showing at the Interpretive Center are $12 and are available at Skiers Edge Pro ShopBighorn Outdoor Specialists or will be available at the door.
