Ski film benefit kicks off season

Phoenix Mountain Alpine Ski Society (PMASS) is proud to present a ski film benefit to start off the winter season.

Phoenix Mountain Alpine Ski Society (PMASS) is proud to present a ski film benefit to start off the winter season.

All proceeds go to the Youth Snow Safety and Avalanche Awareness course and the Rock Creek/Westbridge Fire Needs Committee.

The film showing is Warren Miller Entertainment’s 66th annual film, Chasing Shadows. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for youth 12 and under.

For 66 years, Warren Miller has been making incredible ski movies. His fall tours are where skiers and snowboarders awaken from the long hard summer. Passions are reignited; friends are reunited; and ski season officially begins.

Warren Miller once said, “A pair of skis are the ultimate transportation to freedom,” and this year, we’re chasing storms, snow, lines and the freedom they grant us.  As skiers and snowboarders we chase a feeling, a memory, a storm, a turn— we’ve been chasing it our whole lives and we’ll keep chasing it a lifetime more.

Be sure to bring your friends, your kids, and your parents to the GEM Theatre on Sunday, Nov. 15 at 6:45 p.m. for Chasing Shadows. If you haven’t been part of the Warren Miller tradition yet, it is never too late to join.

We will have door prizes from local businesses and swag and prizes from the national sponsors to give away. Justine Kelsie, who is the daytime host of GOAT FM, will be the master of ceremonies.

Come prepared to hoot and holler in classic ski film fashion!
