The first hour after sunrise and the last hour before sunset are coveted times for those who love the mountains. Referred to as the “magic hour” these times provide the perfect light to capture stunning images transformed by world class skiers and snowboarders. For 27 years Teton Gravity Research has been hunting for the right place, with the right crew, at the right time, to find these fleeting moments. Somewhere between the joy of the hunt and the magical experience of floating down a mountain we have found that the “magic hour” is different for everyone and not necessarily dependent on the time of day, but the sum of an experience becoming greater than its parts. Ultimately the culmination of these moments manifest into something bigger every fall when celebrated and shared in our annual magic hour.
