April Powder Wraps 5Point Film Festival 2014

This post by WildSnow.com blogger  

After four days of inspiring movies, best friends, Colorado backcountry chunder, forget-me-not blue skies, rock climbing, unicycling and endless photo booth shenanigans…5Point wraps up its seventh festival. It was, in a word: hecka-fun.


Colorado spewed powder for our wrap-up expedition. We rousted our house full of friends and skied laps in the West Elk Mountains. Henry is feeling inspired.


Louie gets powder commitment.


Seth practices respect.


Eric genuflects.




Hashi, she’s a smooth skier says Lou.








Back in town for 5Pointing.

5Point reported their most successful festival ever. Calling all WildSnowers: we hope to see you there next year. Meanwhile, Happy Monday!
