The latest Teton Gravity Research film called “Legend Has It” will be premiering as part of the KORE Outdoor Rec-tech Summit in Kimberley, British Columbia on October 12, 2023.

The event in Kimberley is part of a six-show tour in British Columbia and attendees at each event will be invited to donate to help raise funds toward the KORE circular economy initiative. Everyone who donates is eligible to win a heli-ski prize package worth $2,500 that includes:
- 1 day of heliskiing with the Mike Wiegele company
- Accommodation in Blue River, BC located between Valemount and Kamloops

“Legend Has It” is Teton Gravity Research’s 28th annual snow film and it features an array of locations including British Columbi, Patagonia, Pakistan, and Sierra Nevada during the 2022/23 season, which was California’s snowiest winter on record.
The filmmakers describe the movie as such: “Ski lore is riddled with stories, sometimes of unknown origin, describing plausible but extraordinary past events. Often shared on chairlifts, the skintrack, or over a beer, these legendary tales, whether it be mythical storm cycles, heroic feats, or whispers of fantastical terrain, all contribute and shape our present experience.”
It features Kootenay athlete Christina Lustenberger as well as such world-renowned skiers and riders as Kai Jones, Ian Mcintosh, Nick McNutt, Jeremy Jones, Tim Durtschi, and Olympian Maggie Voisin.
