For ski & snowboard purists, activities in the summer like mountain biking, hiking or trail running are just distractions. They’re like the main course while sliding down a mountain in the winter is the dessert. The main dish is good, but we all can agree that we look forward to the tasty treat at the end.
Fall is the time for us to finish up that meal and start salivating about dessert. And what’s the best way to do that? By going to a ski or snowboard movie premiere! For only a few bucks, you can watch a flick, meet a few pros and maybe even land some swag. Talk about a good time! To find a movie premier near you, check out our event calendar found here. And make sure you check back with us often…or better yet, sign up for our newsletter and we’ll keep you posted on what’s going on in a ski-town near you.
Snowboard & Ski Movie Premieres 2017
Teton Gravity Research – Rogue Elements
In the winter of 2016/2017, the magnitude of winter’s force was on full display. Telephone-pole-snapping storms pounded the Wyoming landscape. Regions to the west, recently left arid and forgotten, were gifted with unprecedented accumulation. Blizzards in Europe buried towns in an instant before disappearing just as fast, leaving the lucky few who were there to wonder if it even happened. A Bolivian expedition found grace above 18,000 feet before the elements went rogue and the humans reluctantly heeded warnings from above.
Join the TGR team as they embark on an adventure filled with fury & glory to witness the unimaginable. Presented by REI.

Level 1 Productions – Habit
There are as many paths in life as there are people. Some choose to be carpet salesmen while others choose to be skiers. These behaviors are part of life’s routine, and consciously or not, we’re all slaves to it somehow. But, you can’t have the result without the process – you must get up to go down. Let this be your field guide to the minutia, the frivolities and of course, the addiction to pure, uncut freedom. Go ahead… scratch that itch! Because after all, we are creatures of HABIT. And don’t forget to check out last year’s review of the premiere found here.
