Our bias? We like movies with climbing skins.
Boulder Theater, September 26, 2018
For some here in Colorado, it is tough to build winter ski psych during shoulder season. The days get shorter, and as the rainy, cool fall weather appears, my coworkers bemoan the fact that summer in the Front Range is ending. No more cragging in Boulder Canyon, gone are the casual Boulder bike path commutes to the office, a jacket may be required, and heaven forbid a beanie!
But for the rest of us (aka all readers of WildSnow dot com), it’s the start of the new year. Maybe you’re like us in the Dierker/Perrot residence: checking the skins (hopefully well-preserved in the salad drawer of the fridge); re-molding ski boot liners; doing thousands of box jumps, weighted step ups, goblet squats, and long runs; debating gear to upgrade; and of course, rewatching beloved ski flicks and attending new film premiers for the season.
Our viewing pleasure kicked off with a fabulous one this year produced by Matchstick Productions and directed by Scott Gaffney: “All In.”
