Watching ski movies to get psyched for winter is an age-old tradition, but what ever happened to the old-school slide show? Well you can get retro and throw back a few brewskis at the same time during the 1st annual Ascent Backcountry Snow Journal Slide Show at Brewvies Cinema Pub.
Hosted by Noah Howell of Powderwhore Productions fame, the Slide Show will be a mashup of video and photo presentations from some of the most prolific backcountry skiers in the west. This “live storytelling” event will feature adventures from the Wasatch and around the world. Presenters include the legendary steep skier Andrew McLean; the speedy skimo brothers Jason and Andy Dorais; the first female to ski all the lines in the Chuting Gallery, Caroline Gleich; and Mr. Noah Howell himself.
Of course being at Brewvies, you can enjoy this gathering of the backcountry-skiing tribe with beer in hand. And no ski-season-pre-game event would be complete without a huge gear raffle and the Slide Show is no exception. With your raffle ticket you have a chance to win gear from the top backcountry brands including Black Diamond, Flylow, Scarpa, Julbo, Goal Zero, Leki, Outdoor Research and more. All proceeds will benefit the Wasatch Backcountry Alliance, the non-profit organization representing you and the backcountry community.
The Ascent Backcountry Snow Journal Slide Show happens on Wednesday, October 18th from 7-9 p.m. at Brewvies Cinema Pub (677 S. 200 W. Salt Lake City, Utah)
