Sheridan Opera House Presents “Way of Life”

The Telluride Ski Mountain may not open for another month, but it’s never too early to get excited about skiing. Sheridan Opera House’s presentation of “The Way of Life” this Thursday, November 7th is the perfect way to do so. Gravity Works and Osprey Packs, who are presenting the ski movie, are also running a raffle for free gear at the event, getting you even more pumped for the ski season.WayOfLife_Logo_Red

The film, which has 2 showings at the Sheridan Opera House, one at 6PM and one at 8PM, follows the Telluride Gravity Research team (TGR) as they set out on a mission to find snow’s most hallowed ground and experience a brotherhood that has no language and knows no boundaries. Filmed during the winter of 2013, “Way of Life” takes you on a journey to the mountains with today’s top athletes.

TGR shot “The Way of Life”, using the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera platform in the world, the GSS C520. With stunning imagery created with GSS, Red Digital Cinema and Sony Action Cam, this film explores the origins of skiing in Austria, the search for original lines in Alaska from TGR’s Fantasy Camp, and the U.S. Freeskiing Team’s quest for Olympic gold. The adventure also leads athletes to the rugged terrain of Jackson Hole and the Tetons as well as the backcountry of British Columbia.

The film stars Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Sammy Carlson, Dash Longe, US Freeskiing Team and many more and was shot on location in Jackson Hole Wyo., Akaska, Austria, British Columbia, and Mammoth Mountain in California.

Way of Life was created to tap into the global community that embraces this way of life we’re so passionate about,” says Steve Jones, TGR co-founder. “TGR has over 15 years of aerial cinematography experience, and this film, which marks the cinematic debut of the GSS system, contains the most stunning footage we’ve ever shot.”

“We really put the GSS system to use at TGR’s Fantasy Camp, which is the most cutting-edge heli outpost concept ever devised,” adds Todd Jones, TGR co-founder. “The camp gave us a home base from which to pick off first descents in Alaska’s remote Neacola Mountains, allowing TGR to continue our tradition of exploring the unknown.”

Tickets are $15 at the door. For more information on TGR, please visit TetonGravity, one of the leading online destinations and communities in action sports. Tickets and additional event information are available at the Sheridan Opera House or 970.728.6363 x5.
