Saturday October 12 @ Pine Mountain Sports. Doors 7P, Show 7:30P
Pine Mountain Sports and Powderwhore presents an in-store screening of their latest and greatest backcountry ski film, Elevation. This is the 9th annual ski movie from our friends at Powderwhore Productions and we are excited to once again host them and their new film here in Bend, Oregon.
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.
The backcountry is the imagination unleashed and you get out what you put in. There are real boundaries and limitations though; avalanches, exposure to the elements, conditions and fatigue all challenge one to grow in knowledge, patience and fitness. The joy comes in discovering these limitations, moving through fear and exploring beyond. Putting in the perspiration and inspiration leads to ELEVATION.
Filmed in Alaska, Wyoming, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. Come join us and get stoked for winter! Our friends from Deschutes Brewery will be providing free beverages for the evening.
Advance tickets go on sale at Pine Mountain Sports on Mon Sep 30 for $10 (cash or check only, please). Any remaining tickets can be purchased at the door the night of the show for $10. Doors 7P, Show 7:30P.
