Mother Nature’s reluctance to let loose with the powder means the lifts won’t be turning at Keystone Resort this weekend, but Warren Station’s Get Stoked Winter Film Series will still provide the promise of face shots for eager powder hounds.
One of the top action-sports production companies, Poor Boyz, will blow your mind with reels of jaw-dropping feats in “TWENTY.” Before the film, bring on the hype with the Warren Station Deck Jam on the patio, featuring Dollar Dogs (hot dogs with all the fixings) and rocking beats for ticketholders, plus Red Bull, beer and Bring on the Pow drink specials. Then get stoked for another season as legendary and rookie shredders tackle unforgiving territory on the big screen.
ABOUT THE FILM
Poor Boyz Productions was born with the ambition to be true to the movement of “New School” skiing. With a camera in hand and ski boots on their feet, the Poor Boyz crew has done just that for the past 20 years, from the early days of the resurgence of New School, the first rail ever shown in a movie and the New Canadian Air Force gaining respect in a snowboard park to the revolution of style, discovering the undoable and bringing creativity to Alaska. The crew and the family of skiers involved in Poor Boyz has undoubtedly kept the pulse of the sport beating.
“Looking back through all the archives was the biggest trip of my life,” said Johnny DeCesare, owner of Poor Boyz Productions. “I can’t believe what’s gone down in the past 20 years. … I almost cried watching Pep Fujas’ and Tanner Hall’s segments — completely mind blowing.”
“TWENTY” brings you the best of the best from today’s top athletes, as well as unseen relics from the vault that will blow your mind once again.
COMING UP NEXT
The Get Stoked series continues on Saturday, Nov. 8, with the Summit County premiere of Unicorn Picnic’s “Pretty Faces,” at 5:30 and 8 p.m. at Warren Station. “Pretty Faces” is a film starring women who take the path less traveled with the motto, “If she can do it, then so can I.”
The concept for the film, which celebrates women who thrive in the snow, originated with professional big-mountain skier and SheJumps co-founder Lynsey Dyer, who wanted to inspire women and girls, young and old, through a look at what’s possible when boundaries are broken, dreams captured and friendships cultivated.
“I wanted to give young girls something positive to look up to,” Dyer said. “I wanted to give them their ‘Blizzard of Ahhs,’ ‘Ski Movie’ or ‘High Life,’ but done in a way that also shows the elegance, grace, community and style that is unique to women in the mountains.”
A portion of the proceeds from the event will be divided between two of Summit County’s local youth clubs, Team Breck Sports Club and Team Summit. Drink specials and giveaways are also included.
