Facets of Winter

Hope to see some of you on Friday, Sept 23, at the Mountaineering Center in Golden. It's $5, and free for AAC members. Pre-show happy hour at 6:30 and a tour of the museum, and the show starts at 8. Fair bit of 14er footage with Brittany (mtnbikerskierchick), but unfortunately only on peaks outside Wilderness due to the legal issues. Gonna be fun!

Saw this years offering from the Sweetgrass guys last night at New Belgium, not too shabby. Artsiest ski film I've ever seen, by far. Holy crap that film is artsy.

Most likely gonna make the trip down to Golden tomorrow night to catch Facets of Winter and try to get acquainted with the AE folks. I'm thinking they need to make an appearance in Fort Collins this year. Looking forward to saying hello to some of my favorite people!

If anybody up my way is interested in heading down there with me, holla.

Gotta say, Nick kinda kills it with the story and superb cinematography. And that is where this industry should be going. We know that people are willing to throw their carcasses off of 80ft cliffs after a heli ride. But the artistic representation, uphill power, and stories are what inspires me. I am glad that ski films are heading in a more artistic direction. Thanks Sweetgrass.

+1

I think that's what the problem is with most of these production companies that pop-up, no originality, just the same old scenes of people trying to ski the gnarliest and biggest stuff they can find. I have a few friends associated with sweetgrass and have been following them since the early days and I'd have to say all their movies are pretty awesome. To them it's not about the 80ft cliffs and getting the best shot possible...it's about the passion that most people have for snow sports and showing that through a story and artistic approach.

Ok this one's just shot by a bunch of kids having a great time. No extreme cliffs or crazy drops out of a helicopter. Lyngen 10. Starts off a little slow but quickly gets to the skiing.

Made it to the tour opener for this one last night. Knee dropping good times.



Turns out I knew one of these guys when he went to school up here, before I even knew what a climbing skin was. How bout that! Wishing them the best of luck in the future.

Lookin forward to movie four in about a week...TGR!

+1. I absolutely cannot wait for this. Anyone who missed the first installment, Deeper, should check that out too. Full-tilt, human-powered ski(snowboard) mountaineering.

This film trilogy is an awesome project.
