Start time: 7pm
Once you’ve reached the top, it’s all downhill from there. For skiers, of course, this is great news, whether they’ve just gotten off a lift, left the starting gate or jumped from a helicopter. The thrill is in the descent — fast, frantic, potentially fatal, yet just plain fun. In this jaw-dropping program of films, you’ll meet a man who literally skis around the world, a Frenchman who traverses unusual slopes, a trio of pros who overcome some steep fears and awful injuries, proving black diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
Admission: $15 for Opening Night film, or get a Film Festival Pass for $75 which gets you access to all films. All sales are final. There are no refunds, exchanges possible. All programs are subject to change at discretion of Festival management.
