Every year, TGR puts on the Grom Comp with the goal of showcasing the next generation of talent in skiing and snowboarding. Each year we are blown away by the talent and dedication on display from groms who submit an edit. From the park to the backcountry, the future of both skiing and snowboarding is in the good hands courtesy of these young chargers.

With so many entries this year it was difficult to choose a winner, but one skier rose to the top. Max Meza impressed us with his composed style and ability to send in big lines in full-on conditions. It's obvious that he has been shaped by the rugged cliffs of Little Cottonwood and his skiing is a reflection of this upbringing. Max will be a name to watch over the next couple of years and we at TGR are stoked to honor him as the 2017 TGR Grom Comp winner.
