Teton Gravity Research is heading back to Breckenridge for the one-night-only premiere of its new high-definition ski film, “Way of Life.” The film will screen twice today at three20south, 320 S. Main St., Breckenridge, once at 8 p.m. and again at 10.

For some, embracing the mountains is not just part of life — it’s a way of life. Shot on location in 2013, “Way Of Life” takes you on a journey to the mountains and inside the minds of today’s top athletes. With stunning imagery created with GSS, Red Cinema and the Sony Action Cam, this film explores the origins of skiing in Austria, the search for original lines in Alaska and the U.S. Freeskiing Team’s quest for Olympic gold. The adventure also leads athletes to the rugged terrain of Jackson Hole, Wyo., and the Tetons, as well as the backcountry of British Columbia. This journey takes them across the globe as they form a brotherhood that needs no language. After all, a smile on a powder day needs no translation.

Featured athletes include Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Tim Durtschi, Sammy Carlson, Dash Longe, Dana Flahr, Todd Ligare, Griffin Post, Angel Collinson, Ian McIntosh, Dylan Hood, John Spriggs, Colter Hinchliffe, Max Hammer, Daniel Tisi, Willie Borm and the U.S. Olympic Freeskiing team.

There is a $6 cover charge for the film, or come early and see both showings for the same price. The first screening is for all ages; the second is for an audience 21 and older. For more information, visit

Open house at Grant

Street studios in Denver

The Grant Street Art Studios, located at 19th and Grant, right near downtown Denver, will be open to the public this weekend. The studios are housed in an Italian Renaissance Revival building that originally housed Denver’s Central Catholic High School.

In the 1980s, the school was closed and converted into the Samaritan House, a homeless shelter, which later relocated to a larger building at 23rd and Lawrence. Little Sisters of the Poor operated an AIDS hospice in the south wing of the building until 2009, while Grant Street Art Studios occupied the north wing as it continues to do up to the present day.

There are about 25 artists that have studios in the building, with artists specializing in all different mediums. Take this opportunity to see the work of many artists in a beautiful, historic Denver building. The studios will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and Sunday. For more information, find the Grant Street Art Studios on Facebook.
