Winter sports coming to big screen

Ski season is fast approaching and the anticipation is growing

Ski season is fast approaching and the anticipation is growing. One Golden local has found a solution to help the community express that excitement. Two ski movies will be screened at the Golden Kicking Horse Cinema.

“Sherpas Cinemas presents All.I.Can and Matchstick Productions presents Attack of La Nina,” Brian Coles said, “they are both ski movies with the best cinematography of the year.”

Sherpas’ All.I.Can  will be showing on November 10 and MSP’s Attack of La Nina will be hitting the big screen on November 17. Both movies will have a double showing, one at 6 p.m. and one at 8:30 p.m.

“The movies are both filmed all around the world but some of the best footage is from B.C.”

With scenes from Chatter Creek, Island Lake Catskiing, Golden Alpine Holidays, Mica Heliskiing, Bralorne, Selkirk Wilderness, Meager, Revelstoke and Terrace, these films will bring our beautiful backyard to centre stage.

Coles said that these films are a great way to get excited for another history making season and a great place to “hang out with friends and get excited about the snow that is falling.”

The entrance fee is $10 and there are great prizes to be won during the event.

“Dave Mossop is a name familiar to people in this area and he filmed the Sherpas movie. As (these movies are) filmed in our backyard, it is pretty cool to see what these guys do on terrain that we all know,” said  an excited Coles.

This event is being supported by the Gentlemen’s Leisure Club of Golden, a not-for-profit local group dedicated to putting on great events for the community and helping children with financial needs get active and into sports.

“The Gentlemen’s Club is also providing me with volunteers to make the event happen. I encourage everyone to not be shy and show your excitement for the ski season and support local events.”

Coles would also like to thank the sponsors  including Bluehouse Skis, Higher Ground, Fire Vixen Tattoos and Biglines.com, who have provided some wonderful prizes for the events.

Don’t forget to come out to the Golden Kicking Horse Cinema on November 10 and November 17 at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. to remind yourself why we all love snow.
