A&E At a Glance
Colorado Rocky Mountain School alumni are featured in a telemark film screening at the CRMS Barn Saturday. Freeheel-skiing filmmaker Cody Smith, a 2004 CRMS grad, premieres his latest film, “Since We Last Spoke,” showcasing extreme telemark-skiing exploits. The film begins at 7 p.m.; admission is $7. Smith co-directed the film with Josh Madsen; both are members of the Salt Lake City-based Lipstick Films freeheel-skiing collective. Athletes in the film also include Austin Corry, a 2002 CRMS alumnus. Filmmakers and skiers will stay for discussion and a signing after the film. In fall 2006, Smith and Corry, and Max Mancini (CRMS ’00), premiered another telemark film at CRMS under the Free Heel Life banner. All were on the CRMS telemark team – the first prep-school telemark team established in the U.S. For more information, call 963-2562.
