Fabricating winter with Full Tilt and TGR in Duluth, Minnesota
While much of North America endured record snowfalls, the urban areas throughout the midwest lay uncharacteristically dry. So when Cam Riley, Sean Jordan, and Clayton Vila linked up in Duluth to shoot a street part, the lack of snow forced the crew to get creative.
Because, after all, they were creating the urban segment for Teton Gravity Research’s newest movie, Rogue Elements. But the boys persevered, and created one of the more memorable segments in the flick.
Check out some of the behind the scenes action:
But ultimately, they weren’t able to stitch together enough snow to make it work. They had to leave Duluth and skip over to Spokane — and later, Massachussetts — for some added shots. At the end of the day, the boys were able to pull it off, creating one of the more interesting and stylized segments in the entire movie.
But don’t just take our word for it; the fine folks over at TGR put up a whole feature documenting the process from start to finish. Check it out HERE!

The most influential duo in freestyle skiing, Phil Casabon (aka B-DOG) and Henrik Harlaut (aka E-DOLLO), are back with their second, lightweight pro model.
Infused with their style and energy as well as backed by FT performance, The B&E is supported by the Original 3-Piece boot design, a 99mm width and 6 flex tongue for comfortable and stylish hot laps through the park.
Clayton Vila is set to release his own solo project this Fall and we cannot be more excited. FIVE, as the work is titled, will be Vila’s first release as principal director, self edits such as The Creep not withstanding. Details about its contents are few & far between which has only fueled the hype.
As a lead-in to the film, Vila had released a documentary earlier this Summer called A Career Reflection which seeks to show a true reflection of Vila as a former competitor turned urban ski scene phenom.
The numbers don’t lie, the best in the world wear Full Tilt Boots.
Here are a few of the highlights from the Sochi Winter Olympics:
Justine Dufour-Lapointe, along with her sister Chloe took home Gold and Silver for Canada in Women’s Moguls. Also from Canada, Mikael Kingbury took home silver in Men’s Moguls. Rounding out Canada’s impressive performance was Kim Lamarre. She took home bronze in Women’s Slopestyle. Mengtau Xu & Jongyang Jia, both of China, would win Silver & Bronze medals for Women’s & Men’s aerials respectively. Finally, Australia’s Lydia Lassila took bronze in Women’s Aerials.
Today, Poppermost Productions, the independent developer behind SNOW announced their partnership with over a dozen of the biggest brands in the winter sports industry which includes Full Tilt Boots. Basically you’ll have the option to have your skier purchase everything from Full Tilt. Check out a few of the actual screen shots from the game that will be released in October.
