'Elevation A Backcountry Film' by the Powderwhores

Wednesday, Oct 23 - 7:00PM to 9:00PM

Before resorts, lift tickets and overpriced pizza, there was adventure in skiing. Before the mountains were harnessed with lifts, bound with ropes and scarred with designated runs, they were wild. Actions with consequences were chosen and the individual was held responsible. No liability forms or waivers. The lifts came and made the mountains small, tame and, in time, boring. We were sold that THIS is skiing. And we obeyed. With this resurgence into the backcountry we look for real adventure beyond the tightly wound, firmly stretched orange and black ropes that “protect” us from knowing freedom.
