Todd Jones joins the LPP for a rare interview. As one of the cofounders of Teton Gravity Research, Todd has been instrumental in helping shape our sport into what it is today.
Todd moved west in 1991, following the lead of his brother Steve. One visit and a huck into Corbet’s Couloir was the deciding factor that changed the course of his life.
Todd explains how TGR got its start and describes how, in order to be successful and achieve longevity, they’ve needed to be adaptable to the changing times and technology.
He also discusses the dynamic between his son, phenom skier Kai Jones, and the relationship that they foster on and off the mountain.
Inclusivity in the mountains is also a topic that Todd wants to use his platform to bring attention to. He feels that our industry still has a very long way to go and that TGR needs to use its voice to do what ever it can to promote positive change.
