Get ready, Traverse City, TGR is coming to town with our latest film, Ode to Muir! Proceeds from the event will benefit the launch of Inspire Ski and Snowboard Club!

Ode To Muir pairs professional snowboarder and founder of Protect our Winters Jeremy Jones with two-time Olympian Elena Hight as they embark on a 40-mile foot-powered expedition deep into California’s John Muir Wilderness. Their journey balances the challenges of winter camping and grueling climbs to snowboard the Sierra’s unnamed peaks, with personal reflections on the importance of the natural world. The film ultimately contemplates the perspectives gleaned from past protectors who fought to preserve a great American Wilderness.
