Stratton Mountain School Summit Series returns for 2019-2020
STRATTON—The Stratton Mountain School Summit Series, co-sponsored by Stratton Mountain Resort, returns on Saturday, Nov. 30 with a screening of Warren Miller's 70th full-length feature film, "Timeless."
Much of the world has changed since Warren Miller started making ski films in 1949, but the passion of snowriders across the globe has stayed the same. Timeless emulates the enduring spirit of winter and gives a deserving nod to the past seven decades of ski cinematography, while looking toward the future. Get ready to kick off your winter with a cast of fresh faces, inspirational locales, plenty of laughs and camaraderie, and a classic blend of the new and old.
"It's incredible, looking at the fact that this is number 70," says Timeless narrator Jonny Moseley. "Every year I still get that same feeling I got when I was a kid watching ski movies. I enjoy watching them now more than ever, and that is what Timeless celebrates."
Timeless is the first of five film events coming to the Stratton Mountain School campus this year, followed by The Collective, a new film from Faction Skis featuring featuring SMS alumna and Olympian Caroline Claire `18 and World Champion Freeskier Mac Forehand `20, on Saturday, Dec. 28.
On Jan. 18, SMS will host the 5Point Film Festival, showcasing meaningful adventure stories that share the same core tenets of purpose, respect, commitment, humility, and balance. The Summit Series will continue on Feb. 22 with the Reel Rock 14 Film Tour, which brings the best climbing and adventure films of the year to live audiences throughout the world. The film tour is the definitive annual event for climbing communities globally, and this year's edition features elite climbers like Alex Honhold, Tommy Caldwell, and Nina Williams. The SMS Summit Series will conclude on March 21, 2020 with the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, whose selections illustrate the Earth's beauty while showing the challenges facing our planet and communities working to protect it.
All Summit Series events begin at 7 p.m. in the Patti Kaltsas Education, Arts, and Student Center on the SMS Campus (located at 7 World Cup Circle, Stratton Mountain, 05155) and tickets are $10 online or at the door. Visit www.gosms.org/summit-series for more information or to purchase tickets.
