6:30PM: Doors Open
7PM - The Stomping Grounds - Matchstick Productions
"For decades, the pursuit of adventure, deep powder and massive spines has taken professional skiers like Mark Abma and Michelle Parker to the far reaches of the globe. As skiers, the desire to seek more and to escape is ingrained in our DNA. But that doesn’t mean our immediate surroundings don’t possess their own special treasures. Presented by Toyota, Matchstick Productions brings to you their newest creation, THE STOMPING GROUNDS."
9PM - Tales From Cascadia - Blank Collective
"Cascadia, a bioregion defined by its unique natural characteristics, its people and its diversity. From the shores of the Pacific coast, to the lush rainforests, to the volcanic mountain peaks there are tales that define this harmony. In 2021, Blank Collective films will embed themselves in Cascadia in pursuit of these winter tales."
10PM - Roots - Faction Red Bull
"Faction’s third feature film uncovers the foundations of freeskiing as seen by the current generation of skiers. From the caves of the Dolomites to the nightscapes of Ruka and the mythic peaks surrounding Verbier, "Roots" takes us on a journey through the vibrant spectrum of freeskiing. In co-production with Red Bull Media House."
