In the early months of 2019, Bryan Iguchi teamed up with fellow snowboarders Jeremy Jones and Travis Rice to explore an untamed part of Wyoming on a 10-day human powered expedition. They documented it on film.
“Roadless,” the film capturing that adventure, will screen at Vail Mountain School tonight at 7. This film is the second time this year that work from Teton Gravity Research has shown in Vail; the production company’s ski film “Winterland” had its Vail premiere on Oct. 24.
For “Roadless,” Iguchi, Jones and Rice each followed their own unique journey to become three of the most influential people in the action sports industry. They have changed the way we interact with the mountains and continually redefine what’s possible.
For the first time in their successful careers, these snowboarding legends were united by a common goal: To trek deep into the Yellowstone wilderness in search of groundbreaking first descents in the most remote region of the lower-48.
Their arduous journey through this winter landscape not only yields world-class riding, but also allowed these three to reflect on their shared past and love of snowboarding in one of America’s last wild places.
