For skiers and snowboarders, it's never too early to start thinking about winter on the mountain. To help get snow lovers pumped for the season, Teton Gravity Research is throwing a winter kick-off party at the Aggie on Wednesday, October 12, featuring a rail jam, all sorts of prizes, and a showing of their latest action-packed film, "Tight Loose." From India to Alaska, "Tight Loose" takes viewers on a wild adventure, as 21 daring skiers and riders push the boundaries, hitting unridden spine walls, massive air, and exciting full throttle shredding all across the globe. The movie will be shown at 8 p.m. and ages 16 and up are welcome to attend.

In addition to the one-night only premiere of "Tight Loose," guests are invited to watch and even take part in the rail jam, happening at 6 p.m. outside of the Aggie. Rail jam competitors can register online and must be at least 18-years-old. There will be prize giveaways all throughout the evening, and everyone in attendance will receive a free Monday-Thursday lift ticket to Crested Butte (also valid as a buy-one-get-one Friday-Sunday). Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the event.
