Atop Mount Moran
Last March, skiers Griffin Post, Max Hammer, Angel Collinson and snowboarder Mark Carter headed to Mount Moran in Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park for four nights of camping and skiing big, classic lines for Teton Gravity Research's new film, "Almost Ablaze." In this image, Griffin Post crosses Jackson Lake en route to our base camp.

We had an amazing base camp, thanks to the help of Exum Mountain Guides, and the living was good. Here the crew is relaxing after dinner planning for the next day's mission. Pictured from left to right is Dan Gibeau, Blake Campbell, Dutch Simpson, Griffin Post, Zahan Billimoria, Mark Carter, Angel Collinson and Nat Patridge.
