I grew up in southern California riding parks and playing in the sunny slush of Snow Summit. I began competing professionally in 2001 and soon after my first X-games appearance was introduced to riding and filming in the backcountry by Travis Rice on a trip to Jackson in 2002! I continued to compete in X-Games and other high profile contests until 2011, when I decided to focus solely on filming in the backcountry. Since then I’ve worked on several film project including, Intervals, Full Moon Film, Landline and Listen to the Eyes. I always enjoy returning to Jackson, as it is the place that first instilled my love of riding powder and the backcountry.

Born in Melbourne, Australia and grew up skiing at Mt Hotham ski resort in Australia's south east. I've been chasing winters around the world back to back since 2009 filling the financial gaps coaching the Mt Hotham Freeski team during southern winters. On the side I'm completing a Bachelor of Business online as I travel in an attempt to support the lifestyle in the future. After spending 4 years travelling Europe, Japan and Canada in search of the ultimate freeride resort I planted my feet in Jackson 4 seasons ago and haven't been able to leave since, no where offers the access to terrain like this town does. Recently won the BullerX big mountain competition run by TGR photographer Tony Harrington during the southern winter and eager and humbled for the opportunity to test myself amongst the line up of shredders who call this place home. There's no place like the Tetons.

I’m a professional snowboarder born and raised in the town of Jackson, WY. I started skiing at the age of 2 with the support of my dad who was on the JHMR ski patrol for over 25 years. I switch over to snowboarding or a.k.a “The Dark Side”, as my dad would call it, at the age of 6. With snowboarding being the new fun thing in the mountains it became clear to me that I wanted to work as hard as I possibly could to achieve the dream of being a professional snowboarder. I competed at a young age and as I got older I started to get more interested in the filming side of the sport. I grew up watching snowboard videos with idols I looked up to my whole life. The last three years I worked on the new Red Bull Media House movie called, “The Fourth Phase” and Arbor Snowboards movie, “Cosa Nostra”. I'm so grateful to be doing what I do for a living and wouldn’t be able to do it without the support of my sponsors and amazing family. I’m currently working on new film projects and hope to live this dream, for many more years to come.

Tristan “Teton” Brown was raised in the scenic mountains of Sun Valley, ID by a rabid pack of talking wolves known as the Brown family. With the help of his wolf pack and a healthy diet of ski racing and elk meat, Teton survived adolescence and made it to adulthood. After pursuing ski racing for 13 years, he switched his focus to freeskiing and big mountain competitions while studying Environmental Science at CU Boulder. After college, the allure of challenging terrain and deep powder brought Teton to the Tetons, where he spent 3 winters earning – what he calls – a graduate degree in big mountain skiing. These days, he spends the majority of his time outdoors, and gets to ski everyday until his legs are Jell-O. Teton also tries to stay mindful of his ecological footprint, and occasionally howls at the moon in an attempt to make it snow.
