While Lou is jumping planes to Europe, it’s my chance to hop onto WildSnow and take the reins. And when he’s having a Weiss beer with the Dynafit folks later this week, I’ll be having a margarita and enjoying a film with friends back home. If you’re in the Roaring Fork Valley, come to Carbondale on Wednesday, January 13th for the kickoff of 5 Point Film Festival’s Winter Film Series. It’s free, and better yet, promises to be an awe-inspiring event.
Mount St. Elias by Gerald Salmina will be shown. The gripping film is a documentary following three ski mountaineers to Alaska’s Mt. St. Elias. They attempt a big line: 18,000 vertical feet from the summit of Mt. St. Elias to Icy Bay, the longest ski descent in the world. Watch the trailer, Mount St. Elias — it will convince you to go.
