International Women’s Ski and Snowboard Day 2018

A blur of ponytails, colorful outerwear, and skis zoom across a steep, snow-covered slope. Shouts, whoops, and hollers fade as multiple groups of women crest over the hill and descend toward the chairlift. So many groups of female friends having fun together can only mean one thing: it’s International Women’s Ski and Snowboard Day.

Telluride Beckons the Gods of Winter

Town Hosts Ski Burn and Snow Dances

Wednesday, Dec. 20 at 5:30 p.m. • Elk’s Park

Telluride needs to be wearing its winter whites so it is officially time to coerce Mother Nature into delivering an abundance of white gold we so cherish. Telluride’s town officials, ski resort owners and spiritual leaders have come together to ask the Gods of Winter to grace us with their powers. An event to praise our mystical spirits of winter has been organized in order to ask for the much needed snow for our resort and the health of our environment.

 

Tomorrow evening Telluride will host an evening of entertainment beginning with the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe dancers performing their traditional snow dance around the bonfire.

 

This will be followed by a prayer from the great God of Winter, Ullr, to grace this town with his presence.

 

Ullr, originally known as the god of archery, hunting and the winter, is more modernly hailed as the God of Snow or the God of Skiing. Ullr is the god most called upon these days to help make it snow. His presence along with the Ute Mountain Ute’s traditional snow dance, the sacrifice of skis to the flame, music, dancing, drinking and merriment are all believed to help bring winter weather.

 

Beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Elk’s Park, next to the ski tree, Master of Ceremonies, Mayor Sean Murphy, will bring the community together to celebrate the winter to come.

“LINE OF DESCENT”

Saturday December 23rd, 2017 • 6pm & 9pm

 

Tickets $15/adults • $7/kids 18 & Under (6pm Show Only) • Sheridan Opera House • Telluride, CO

 

 

The Sheridan Arts Foundation and Bootdoctors presents Warren Miller Entertainment’s latest ski film “Line of Descent” on Sunday, Dec. 23 with screenings at 6 and 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 for each film for adults and $7 for kids 18 and under at the 6 p.m. screening.

This fall, the annual tradition is back to salute the start of winter. The world’s biggest name in snowsports cinema—Warren Miller Entertainment—celebrates its 68th ski and snowboard film with downhill thrills, global adventure, and a nod to those who taught us to slide on snow.

 

Snow riders are a family—one big tribe comprising many smaller ones. Familial rites pass down through generations. Skier roots grow deep in high mountain soil. “Line of Descent” celebrates just that, the lineage of legendary athletes through a multi-generational cast of skiing’s icons and fresh faces, including Tommy Moe, Jonny Moseley, JT Holmes, Lexi duPont, Seth Wescott, Kalen Thorien, Marcus Caston, Jeremy Jensen, Griffin Post, and more.

 

This year, Volkswagen joins the most esteemed name in winter sports films as the presenting sponsor of the “Line of Descent” U.S. film tour. The partnership builds on the heritage and passion associated with both the Volkswagen and Warren Miller brands. Volkswagen’s partnership will grow authentically well into 2019, elevating the event experience that is the Warren Miller institution and marking the beginning of every winter season.

 

Ride along on a stunning cinematic journey as we travel near and far, descending some of North America’s deepest lines in Jackson Hole, Montana, Silverton, Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows, and Steamboat.

 

From splitboard to powsurfer, motorcycle, dogsled, and snowmobile, the athletes employ nearly all possible means to chase winter along the Beartooth Pass, the French Alps, New Zealand, British Columbia, and Norway.

 

“This season, we explore how skiers are shaped by picking up a pair of skis for the first time,” notes Warren Miller’s veteran producer Josh Haskins. “More often than not, it’s family who introduces us to the sport or steers us on the path toward an ongoing passion—be it a ski-bum lifestyle, a professional career, or simply the desire to pass on the same feeling to the next generation. There is a kinship unlike any other in the ski community, and Warren Miller is the elder, bringing generations of skiers and riders together for 68 years, and this year is no different.”

 

Since 1949, ski families have cheered the official kickoff of winter with the ski film company that started it all. The new Opera House SHOW Bar opens at 5 p.m. and will be open throughout the entire evening.

 

Tickets and additional event information are available at: THE SHERIDAN OPERA HOUSE, or call 970.728.6363 x5.
