Teton Village, WY (August 29, 2011) — Teton Gravity Research (TGR) is pleased to announce that RECCO, a long time supporter of TGR, will join this fall’s ski film One For The Road as a sponsor. One For The Road, TGR’s 2011 feature ski film, is scheduled to release September 17, 2011 giving viewers a look into the ultimate winter road trip.

“Avalanche safety, rescue knowledge, and effective equipment are extremely important to us,” said TGR Co-Founder Steve Jones “we appreciate the continued support of RECCO and are excited to have them back on board as a partner for One For The Road.”
