Media house Teton Gravity Research (TGR) announces the release of the trailer for Paradise Waits, the feature-length ski and snowboard film slated for a September 2015 release.
For those who anticipate winter’s arrival with frothing mouths and the dreams of what may come, this past year came with an unfamiliar set of struggles as perfect moments became more and more elusive. But for the TGR team, this only hardened their pursuit of winter’s rewards. Through the highs and lows of a curious season, they come to find that the moments found on the other side of adversity are the greatest moments of all. As the days turn into weeks and the weeks roll into months, it’s the moments when everything seems to come together in perfect harmony that resonate the loudest.
Paradise Waits chronicles the entire season of a group of characters who are some of the best skiers and snowboarders in the world. Each athlete is mic’d up throughout the film, capturing their personalities from the weird, lighthearted and funny moments, to the action-filled when conditions line up in paradise. Travel the narrow streets and alleys of Boston, where a record 110 inches of snow transformed Beantown into a blank white canvas. Experience a stormy Alaska, as a weeklong storm drops ten feet of fresh snow. Discover Paradise on the far away peaks of Greece, Kosovo, Japan and beyond. Paradise Waits is true documentation of the season as a whole, a ski and snowboard film that you can truly follow.
From the award-winning filmmaking crew that brought you 2014’s Almost Ablaze comes the story of one weird winter and the people who celebrate it… Paradise Waits, a ski and snowboard film.
