Rage Films is giving you our 103.2%

Cool days, and a few dustings of snow has given all you skiers a glimmer of hope in what’s to come. Although ski season is still a few months away, there is an easy solution to get hyped for the upcoming season. We at Rage offer you two easy options. Either come to one of our premiere’s and check out the film, or have a personal premier at your own house over and over again. Yes, Such is Life, our new ski film is available in ski shops and at ragefilms.com. I leave you with 10 lessons learned from the crazy week of Premiers.

Lesson #1
Don’t invite a bunch of kids from Utah to drink out of a keg or any other device that isn’t available in the bee hive state. I’m not going to mention any names but lets just say a few of our veteran athletes turned the world premiere into a marathon drinking event. I was impressed by their ability to keep pace, but not by their ability to lay off of the golden beverage

Lesson #2
Never decide to pick up the security deposit on a house rented for the athletes. Luckily Mike Mertion took pictures of all the devious activities and we at Rage were able to pin point the athletes at fault. I however didn’t need photos of the “no pants no shirt” party that Mertion so happily organized.

Lesson #3
This is a lesson that Derek Spong learned. No matter how incapacitated Kyler Cooley looks do not ever try to wrestle him. I use tranquilizing a bear as reference. Never approach a bear that has been shot by a tranquilizer unless you are fully certain it is sleeping. Let it be known that the same law applies for Kyler.

Lesson #4
Limo rides with 20 year old chicks are cool until they hook up their Ipod to the overly loaded stereo. Pussycat dolls, and Rihanna, are much better to look at, than to listen to.

Lesson #5
If your driving through Boise and its past midnight do not try to get food. After kicking it with Scott’s Kevin Kruse we decided to get some food. In a college town you would figure that Domino’s would be open 24 hours. To our dismay nothing but Denny’s was open. Although we all had grand slams it didn’t feel all that grand the next morning.

Lesson #6
Oh Utah, land of lots of snow, bad ass terrain, and 3.2% fun. I know Utah is fun, but the beer is overly painful to drink. We rolled into town had a great show at East High with Bluehouse Skis and then decided to go out for some brews. Needless to say we all felt like over inflated balloons.

Lesson #7
Giray Dadali has some volleyball game, but Ashley does not. Although Giray lost to the powerhouse team anchored by Dylan Natale, he carried the team with massive spikes on the court. Ashley however was ultimately scared of the soft white volleyball and sent off loud piercing screams when the ball approached her.

Lesson #8
Always make sure that Kyler Cooley is well fed. Half way through the after party Kyler became hungry, and much like hungry bears, do not approach a hungry Kyler unless you come bearing food. We quickly were able to diffuse what possibly could have been a messy situation by paying a sober partygoer to hall ass to a feed store and get food.

Lesson #9
When in Tahoe call up Moment skis if you are planning a party. After a successful Squaw premier, (thanks Savannah and Adam) we headed to a bar in the village. By the time we put down rounds of car bombs and ordered Casey’s favorite drink Jaeger & Cran, I knew the next morning would hurt. Regardless Moment Skis knows how to have a good time.

Lesson #10
When you are on the road make sure to buy a souvenir like a dope wildlife shirt. Chicks dig them and they make you fit in to any redneck crowd. Mark Dvorak our co-pilot for the tour really wanted one throughout the trip, unfortunately he was unable to find one in the 21 gas stops along the way. After the Mt. Shasta premier we strolled into a fine local gas establishment and to Mark’s pleasant surprise, a fine collection of wolf, deer and other wildlife shirts were hanging from the rack.

Bonus Lesson: Dan can never find his wallet.

Look forward to more tales from the road and make sure to hit up many of our upcoming October premiers.
