Telemark ski film highlights four local pinheads
Following in the boot prints of the legendary ski-film guru Warren Miller, Freeheellife.com has teamed up with Falling Forward Films to create a telemark ski film, ‘Smoke and Mirrors.’ It’s a documentary-style film that follows a group of Telemark skiers, doing what they do best and enjoy most.The film’s premiere is 7 p.m. tonight at the Colorado Rocky Mountain School in Carbondale. Then it goes on to Vail for a showing tomorrow at Vail Mountain School at 7 p.m.The film documents the group as they venture onto backcountry slopes from Colorado to Jackson Hole, Wyo., and other locations in Utah and Montana, looking for the season’s best tracks. Highlighted are four graduates of CRMS, Max Mancini, Cody Smith, Austin Corry, and Robby Mcmahon, as they show off their skills and passion for tele-skiing in this second film from the collaborative team.”The first film (Chasing Home, 2005) had a good reception from audiences,” said Editor of freeheellife.com Josh Madsen. “I think ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ will have a great reception as well.”Falling Forward Films (FFF) was started by Mancini and fellow tele-skier Den Dolenc. Both are world-class telemark skiers and have appeared in many of the Warren Miller features. Mancini’s and the others’ ties to the area is the reason for the premiere in Carbondale.”We wanted to premiere the film at the school because of the ties to the school’s tele-ski team,” Madsen said. “The school has a great team and they have a lot of great athletes in the tele-ski world.”Tickets for the film are $6 and can be purchased at the door. Admission is free for CRMS students.Contact John Gardner: 945-8515, ext. email@example.com
