"The Alaskan Way": World Premiere At Sheridan Opera House 2/5/2014

THE ALASKAN WAY copyThe Alaskan Way, a 59 minute documentary film about the risks and rewards of Heli Ski guiding in Haines, Ak. will be making it’s world premiere at The Sheridan Opera House in Telluride, Co. on 2/5/14 at 8PM. The subject of an article in the NY TIMES last spring, The Alaskan Way is a story behind a story.

During the filming of The Alaskan Way a great tragedy occurred that nearly kept the film from ever being made and distributed.  Alaska Heliskiing Heli ski guide and avalanche forecaster Rob Liberman and client Nick DoDov perished in an avalanche on 3/13/12.  This film’s purpose is to expose viewers to the circumstances discovered by a team of professional heli ski guides operating in the consequential environment of big mountain Alaskan terrain.  Despite extensive training to ensure safety in the mountains the guides met a situation where all efforts still resulted in the loss of two lives and one lesson learned: The best can still have a bad day.

The film premiere will be a fundraiser for the San Jaun Field School, the avalanche education resource in Telluride, Colorado. Today, the film is available online on vimeo.com for free at this link: https://vimeo.com/44486546  Viewers of the film can support avalanche awareness and education on 2/05/14 with a donation of $10 at the door or they may visit the tip jar feature on the videos webpage. 10% of profits will be donated to Avalanche Education initiatives chosen by The Alaskan Way TV LLC including AIARE, The Nickolay Dodov foundation and The San Juan Field school in Telluride, Co. Please help us remember Rob Liberman, Nick Dodov and the valliant efforts of thier colleagues and friends. Please introduce your friends, families and fellow powder skiers to the lifestyle that for a brief moment in time was captured and asks viewers to weigh the decisions made when committing to the pursuit of deep passion for deep powder.
