–>> “LEGEND HAS IT (2023)”

Film Production Company: Teton Gravity Research

About the film:

“Ski lore is riddled with stories, sometimes of unknown origin, describing plausible but extraordinary past events. Often shared on chairlifts, the skintrack, or over a beer, these legendary tales, whether it be mythical storm cycles, heroic feats, or whispers of fantastical terrain, all contribute and shape our present experience. For 28 years Teton Gravity Research has been traveling the globe with the best athletes to the most incredible locations often based on this fabled history to uncover the experience…and sometimes creating legends of our own along the way.”

When: Saturday, September 30th. Gates at 6:00pm. Film at sunset.
Where: KT Base Bar at Palisades Tahoe (outdoors)

Tickets

“Pay what you can, it’s that simple! We want our events to be accessible for the entire outdoor community, so whether you’re joining us for $10, or can support with a $25 ticket, our hope is the give-and-take will allow us to continue to bring our films to you while making events more accessible for everyone.” https://www.palisadestahoe.com/events-and-activities/events-calendar/

–>> “FLYING HIGH AGAIN (2023)”

Film Production Company: Teton Gravity Research

About the film:

“In a world, where the snowboard corporatocracy cares more about the next Instagram swipe, one company has decided to team up with legendary snowboard film director, Mike Hatchett, and do the impossible. This film defies all odds – to bring together a crew of passionate riders for a full-length feature film – and celebrate what matters most: a bomber squad, rowdy soundtrack, and pure unadulterated riding action. Are you ready?

TGR’s new snowboard film, Flying High Again, premieres this October.”

–>> “Warren Miller’s ALL TIME: Seventy-four years of filmmaking/strong>

Film Production Company: Warren Miller Entertainment

WARREN MILLER FILM TOUR

Narrated by Jonny Moseley, ALL TIME will feature deep dives into elements that Warren himself first identified as the stuff of which snowy dreams are made.

From the birth of ski towns like Sun Valley and Aspen; to the icons and innovators—like the original hotdoggers—the film will spin through the years like snow ghosts, bringing humor and inspiration from today including Maine’s finest athlete, Donny Pelletier, to the park scene at Woodward Park City and the next gen of skiers and riders.

Less a documentary than a love letter, it’s a way to honor how, where, and with whom we’ve made ski and snowboard movies since Warren first picked up a camera in 1949.

This is not a trip down memory lane; it’s an exploration of how snow sports have burrowed into our collective consciousness as an obsession and a way of life.

Warren Miller ski and snowboard films have served as the annual start to winter for skiers and snowboarders across the globe for nearly 75 years and is a party that can’t be contained by a single film or even a single year.”

The Land of Giants (2023)

“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” -Isaac Newton

The story of man vs. mountain is one that has captured our imaginations for centuries. But what if MSP flipped the script? What if, instead of focusing on the human element, we took a closer look at the mountains themselves?

That’s the premise of The Land of Giants, a new ski film that explores the most iconic mountains on Earth. From the Fjords of Norway to the spines of Alaska, we will get to know and understand the canvas that creates the most mind-melting moments in skiing. But most importantly, we’ll come to appreciate their sheer beauty and power. Captured with revolutionary cinematography combined with genre bending music, The Land of Giants is not to be missed.

The Land of Giants features the best skiers in the world, skiing unbelievable conditions and riding to the very edge and beyond. It’s a celebration of the natural world, and a reminder of the power of the human spirit. It’s a film that will leave you awestruck, inspired, and humbled.

Join us on this journey into The Land of Giants.

The crew at Matchstick filmed in the most iconic and beautiful ranges skiers dream of. Our “Cast” of mountains are:

Smoky Mountains, ID

Chilkat Range, AK

Niseko Range, JP

The Sierra Nevada, CA

Lyngen Alps, NO

Wasatch Range, UT

Fitzsimmons Range, BC

Kitimat Range, BC

The Land of Giants Cast of athletes features the best skiers the sport has to offer, from all over the globe: Mark Abma, Sammy Carlson, Logan Pehota, Tonje Kvivik, Nikolai Schirmer, Caite Zeliff, McKenna Peterson, John Collinson, Colby Stevenson, Janelle Yip, Sam Kuch, Ari Tricomi, Karl Fostvedt, Coline Ballet-Baz, Craig Murray, Emily Childs, Dennis Ranalter, Xander Guldman, Hedvig Wessel, Lucy Sackbauer, Stinius Skjøtskift, Gen Sasaki, Sam Cohen, and Marcus Goguen.”

Where we like to chase POWder?

.. Kashmir’s POW galore

‘where culture, travel exploration and skiing meet’

“Twenty-two year old Swede, Lovisa Rosengren, chooses Gulmarg, Kashmir as her dream trip spot with Cody Townsend and Kalen Thorien. What was supposed to be a cultural trip, turns into so much more when a 3 meter snow storm rolls through the resort.” – Salomon TV


What's it like to ski/ride

.. the Japanese Alps famous fluffy champagne powder?

JaPOW is a word coined for a very good reason: heavenly bucket list worthy powder; see what’s it like to ski/ride Japan’s famous dry champagne powder which is consistently rated as top three in the world and where the Freeride World Tour regularly chooses as one of the tour competition location?

“The Freeride World Tour is an annually toured series of events in which the best freeskiers and snowboard freeriders compete for individual event wins, as well as the overall title of World Champion in their respective genders and disciplines.” – Wiki

Playtime: Dream Ski Trip

from Salomon Freeski TV

“After 8 seasons of Salomon Freeski TV, and thousands of comments from our fans begging for a chance to star in an episode, we’ve listened! For 3 weeks in December, Salomon Freeski TV viewers were given the chance to win their ultimate Free Ski Dream Trip. The contest was simple – tell us where would you go and who would you would want to go with?

10 winners were selected from a list of thousands, then one lucky fan received a phone call giving him/her the opportunity to live out his ultimate skiing fantasy in Japan with Mike Douglas, Cody Townsend, & Kaj Zackrisson.”- Salomon TV

Charge – Salomon TV

“Four top freeskiers and a World Champion drone pilot are dropped at Chatter Creek Cat Skiing in BC for one week. Their instructions: charge as hard as you can every day.

Volunteer as a National Ski Patroller: training, commitments, and perks

national ski patrol

Volunteer as a National Ski Patroller

Training, commitments, and perks..

This blog article was written by Rick Bulan who’s a 10 year veteran ski patroller at Sierra at Tahoe Mountain Resort

Did you know that if you ski or snowboard on the weekends, most of the ski and snowboard patrollers you see are volunteers?

Most resorts have a small paid “pro patrol” and utilize volunteers on the
weekends.

To become a ski/snowboard patroller you need:

1) “Ski Check” at the resort you are interested in (to verify you can ski/ride every run on the
mountain)
2) Outdoor Emergency Care class (80 hours)
3) CPR for health care professionals (AHA approved)
4) Candidate season at the resort to learn locations, equipment, and radio protocols
You will have to commitment to:
1) $98 NSP annual membership
2) 2 days of off-season skills refresher
3) 14 workdays at your resort

Some of the perks you will receive:

1) Discounts from ski and snowboard companies
2) Season passes from your resort

Why do I do it?

What does your typical ski day look like?

Do you do laps, eat, do more laps, then go home?

Now imagine your ski day getting first tracks in the morning, being able to help others, going
straight to the front of the line, getting deep discounts on food, accessing restricted areas of the resort,
hanging out in the patrol room at the top of the mountain with your fellow patrollers, and being the last
person on a previously busy run at the end of the day as the sun goes watching the alpenglow of last sunlight are memories that never get old. If you enjoy adding to your skiing, first aid and Avy skill-set and like to help people, consider joining.

Know of family or friends who would be interested? . Thanks!

New to SnowPals? Join us to meet San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento Area skiers and snowboarders, snow sports Alpine and Nordic backcountry skiers/split-boarders for Lake Tahoe ski trips and powder snow travel destination trips to Epic, Ikon Pass resorts to make the most of your ski season pass.

TGR-WINTERLAND-2019

What: San Francisco premiere of Winterland (Ski Snowboard Film Screening)

ABOUT WINTERLAND starring Jeremy Jones + Angel Collinson + Cody Townsend + Sage Cattabriga-Alosa + more..

“Winterland is a celebration of ski and snowboard culture. Today’s mountain athletes can only stand as tall as those who came before, the pirates of the past who followed their own path and passion. This story of adventure is far from over, as a new crop of modern-day pioneers are eager to etch their names in the annals of history. The technology and style might evolve, but the rush, excitement, and pure fun remain eternal, bonding past, present, and future riders. The film will follow these individuals as they leave their own mark on these fabled locations.”
