Breckenridge stop of The North Face speaker series to feature Sage Cattabriga-Alosa
The North Face announced last week that big mountain skier Sage Cattabriga-Alosa will be the featured athlete when the company’s 2014 Never Stop Exploring Speaker Series comes to Breckenridge on Oct. 4.
Touted as one of the biggest names in the ski film industry, Cattabriga-Alosa earned Best Male Performance honors in Powder magazine’s video awards in 2004, 2009 and 2011. When he isn’t cutting loose in the powder, Cattabriga-Alosa turns his focus to art and music.
Next month’s speaker series event will feature a showing of “A Light Dose,” a film by Adam Clark and action sports film company Teton Gravity Research. “A Light Dose” is the tale of what happens when Cattabriga-Alosa’s worlds of art and skiing collide, documenting how his artistic ideas are brought to life and intertwine with his skiing.
The event, which benefits the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center, begins with a VIP reception at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 4 at The North Face Breckenridge store at 322 Main St. VIP tickets cost $20 and include preferred seating during the main event, a meet-and-greet with Cattabriga-Alosa, as well as beer from Joyride Brewing and food and wine provided by the Briar Rose restaurant in Breckenridge.
The main event, which includes a raffle, takes place at 7:30 p.m. at the Riverwalk Center, 150 West Adams St., in Breckenridge. Raffle tickets can be purchased online at http://www.thenorthface.com/speakerseries or at the event. Raffle tickets are $5 a piece, three for $10 or 10 for $20. Prizes include The North Face products, gift certificates to local stores and a watch from Matheu’s Fine Watches & Jewelry, among others.
Event tickets also are available on The North Face’s speaker series website. Ticket options include $5 for children 12 and under, $10 to guarantee a seat for the main event and $20 for the VIP event.
Proceeds from VIP tickets and a portion of other ticket sales will benefit the BOEC, a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to providing outdoor experiences to people of all abilities and specializing in assisting those with disabilities and special needs. There are a limited number of free tickets on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Never Stop Exploring series is presented by GORE-TEX® and runs nationwide from August 2014 through January 2015.
