The Ripple Effect
Set in the heart of Colorado during one of the deepest winters on record, The Ripple Effect captures the essence of life in the Rocky Mountains. From the progeny of an accomplished mountaineer to the cultural influence of an Olympic snowboarder, the compelling role of snow and its effect on multi-generations is undeniable. At once an action-driven homage to Colorado’s snow-covered Elk Range and a poignant story of loss and affirmation, The Ripple Effect promises to emerge as the definitive meditation on life in the mountains.
Swift. Silent. Deep
*SAT b-side lounge 3pm
Swift. Silent. Deep is the story of a secretive, underground crew who call themselves the Jackson Hole Air Force, a band of civil disobedients in the unknown realm of Out-of Bounds. The influence of the Jackson Hole Air Force has reached far beyond Jackson; JHAF members won the first three World Extreme Skiing Championships and are directly responsible for pioneering the big mountain skiing in the worldâ€™s most incredible playground â€“ Alaska, which brought about the fat ski revolution, and changed the face of skiing forever. This exploration into the roots of the modern American ski bum features many familiar faces in the action sports world like Warren Miller, Scot Schmidt, and the late Doug Coombs.

From the orange and gold of fall to the pink cherry blossoms of spring, Signatures follows an entire winter deep in the hardwoods of Hokkaido, Japan. Deliciously deep January blower to April corn, we bring you a film about expression, and the art of riding on snow. At the heart of this lovely tale of deep powder mystery: the seasons. In Japan there is a cultural connection to the different signatures of our terrestrial home – a sense that the rhythm of fall, winter, spring, summer influences the rhythm of the person, their energy, their style, and the lines they choose. Shot in vibrant HD, Signatures is 100% human powered backcountry skiing in all snow-sliding styles: board, noboard, ski, and drop-knee.
