  2.5 Million

Filmed, Directed and Edited by Tyler Wilkinson-Ray 
Featuring special guest: Filmmaker Tyler Wilkinson-Ray

 

 2.5 Million follows American skier Aaron Rice as he sets out to ski 2.5 million human-powered vertical feet in the backcountry and set a new world record. To be successful Aaron will have to ski over 330 days in the calendar year and chase snow around the world. The challenge is both physical and mental, and injuries are simply not an option.
 

 

  TSIRKU

Film by Sherpas Cinema
Special Guest may be present

Located deep in the Saint Elias mountains where Alaska, British Columbia, and the Yukon converge, there is a place most skiers and snowboarders only dream of visiting. Brought to you by The North Face and Sherpas Cinema, Tsirku is a big-mountain adventure ski film featuring snowboarder Ralph Backstrom and skiers Hadley Hammer and Sam Anthamatten, who set out to tackle the fabled Corrugated spine lines of the Tsirku Glacier.

 

Fall Impressions

Film by Joey Schusler
Special Guest and Presentation by Sarah Uhl

Sarah, a freelance fine art and commercial artist, her work—and her play—all stems from flow. It’s why her mountain biking and her painting go hand in hand. Her goal is to share with other people whatever magic she sees in the world around her.
