Colorado State University Pueblo Outdoor Pursuits presents ski movie, Way Of Life

PUEBLO – On Nov. 8, the Outdoor Pursuits program at Colorado State University Pueblo will present the ski film, Way Of Life, which will take the audience on a journey to the mountains and inside the minds of today’s top athletes.  The ski movie, sponsored by CSU-Pueblo Outdoor Pursuits, The Edge Ski Paddle and Pack, GnarBars, ski athlete Russell James Tebaldi, and Teton Gravity Research, will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the CSU-Pueblo Life Science Auditorium. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Cost for the movie is $10 if purchased in advance and $15 at the door, which includes admission to the event and Teton Gravity Research giveaways. Tickets may be purchased at the CSU-Pueblo Outdoor Pursuits Equipment Room, located in the Student Recreation Center, Monday through Friday, noon to 6 p.m.

For some, embracing the mountains is not just part of life – it’s a way of life. Teton Gravity Research’s 2013 HD ski film, Way Of Life, explores the origins of skiing in Austria, the search for original lines in Alaska, and the U.S. Freeskiing Team’s quest for Olympic gold.  With stunning imagery created with GSS, Red Cinema, and the Sony Action Cam, this film also illustrates athletes in the rugged terrain of Jackson Hole and the Tetons, as well as the backcountry of British Columbia. This journey takes them across the globe as they form a brotherhood that needs no language. After all, a smile on a powder day needs no translation. A trailer is available for viewing at http://www.tetongravity.com/films/way-of-life/.

U.S. Olympic Freeskiing athletes appearing in the film include: Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Tim Durtschi, Sammy Carlson, Dash Longe, Dana Flahr, Todd Ligare, Griffin Post, Angel Collinson, Ian McIntosh, Dylan Hood, John Spriggs, Colter Hinchliffe, Max Hammer, Daniel Tisi, andWillie Borm.
