Tangerine Dream

“Tangerine Dream” has a bucket-load of great performances.  Sage Cattabriga-Alosa kicks it off and shows he’s got a killer instinct on Alaska’s big mountains. Sage is 4 years into a film career by this point in 2005 and he’s got the finesse and the courage to make some of the steepest and most technical runs look like a cakewalk.  That’s fitting, seeing as he is laying it down on some of the richest, fluffiest white Alaskan icing imaginable. “Tangerine Dream” has some beautiful overhead coverage of Ryan Oakden ripping it in Alaska and there’s Dana Flahr skiing steep rock faces to Ra’s “Do You Call My Name”.  When the music is right (and it’s right all through “Tangerine Dream”), great skiing looks even greater.  TGR’s crew take on Alaska, some lower forty runs in Jackson Hole and Utah before they hop a plane for Turkey, Switzerland and Chamonix, France where they are blown away by the sheer size of terrain but they kill it nonetheless.  Of course, no recent TGR film is complete without some snowboard footage of Jeremy Jones.  Jones’ fluid style is mesmerizing to watch. It’s pure vertical surfing; see this on a big screen and it’s going to mess you up (imagine riding one spine over from the guy!).  Another notable showing is 14-year-old Kye Petersen hitting a 90-footer with a 360 and then stepping back up with a 720.  Kids these days!  “Tangerine Dream” closes out with a track from Prong and that can only mean one thing: Jeremy Nobis.  Hard, aggressive skiing to hard, aggressive music.  Nobis has always pushed the limits with his speed-demon approach to the big mountains and you can see him continue to push it here.  “Tangerine Dream” is a super-solid outing from Teton Gravity Research.    By Mark “The Attorney General” Quail
