Ski_The_Himalayas_LARGEIMAGE Telluride Inside… and Out recently announced the availability of an adventure documentary by local filmmaker/mountaineer Ben Clark on Dish Network Pay Per View.

The 90-minute “Ski the Himalayas” chronicles three climbers’ attempts at climbing and skiing 23,390′ Baruntse. Local mountaineers Ben Clark, Josh Butson, and Jon Miller spent 750 days attempting to climb one mountain in a way that had never been done before just to ski one run. A twist of fate sent the adventure into overdrive as the explorers met scenarios that forced them to ask; What is it really worth? They pushed forward anyway…

The catch: you need a dish and a Dish subscription to view “Ski the Himalayas.” At least you did until now. On Saturday, December 11, 8 p.m., The Nugget Theater sponsors a special screening of Clark’s film. The event is a fundraiser for Telluride’s Horizon Program.

Horizon Horizon is a nonprofit organization committed to providing affordable after-school and weekend activities for K through 12 youth, with an emphasis on outdoor recreation and youth climbing.
