“TGR’s Stoke the Fire explores our athletes’ evolution within skiing, and the pure joy that manifests from that process,” wrote TGR. “Stoke means different things to different people based on where they are in their evolution. For some it is about committing to a new world, a lifestyle, and the friendships that blossom from that commitment.”

But ultimately, in the words of TGR, “the pursuit is what stokes the fire.”
