Countdown to ski season begins with BETWEEN!

Just a few weeks until ski season officially begins (though A-Basin already has, we hear there’s only one run open there so far).  To launch the countdown, Allied Feather and Down, which we have discussed in our greening series, together with Spyder, sponsored last night’s screening of BETWEEN, a film produced by Austrian pro skier and filmmaker Sandra Lahnsteiner.

This total “girl power” movie combines inspiration and wondrous views of exotic places and thrilling athleticism with the more personal stores of the athletes.  Olympic Gold Medalist Julia Mancuso last night noted that “film stands for the between moments, the relationships, and the journey that we embark upon by being professional sk iers, but also the performance and being able to go off the beaten path and explore and really live our passion.”

Today is another 65 degree sunny day in Denver, but last night’s film has gotten us super excited for snow season to start!
