Ski films come to Apple’s tonight

Part of Gathering Film & Music Festival


Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation product Griffin Post of Jackson Hole, Wyo. is one star of a Teton Gravity Research ski film titled "One for the Road" that will screen today, Friday at Apple's Bar & Grill in Warm Springs.

Post, 28, is a prominent player in the "One for the Road" ski and snowboard film that follows some of the world's most progressive snowsports athletes. It documents their lives on the road and captures stunning riding and skiing.

The "One for the Road" movie premiere will be about 8:15 p.m. today at Apple's, preceded at 7:30 p.m. by "Prospecting Idaho," a film that features local skiers in familiar nearby locations. "Prospecting Idaho" is produced by Smith Sport Optics of Ketchum.

Admission is $15 per person at the door, with all proceeds going to the SVSEF. Raised here in the Wood River Valley, Post plans to attend today's film screenings, according to Hank Minor of Apple's. Doors open at 5 p.m. today.

The Apple's film screenings are part of the Sept. 22-24 Gathering Film & Musical Festival in Ketchum and Sun Valley, which continues Saturday evening with movies starting at 6 p.m. at Sun Valley Opera House. Visit www.sunvalley.com/gathering.

Promotional materials for "One for the Road" described the film as a visually stunning voyage generated with Phantom, Red, Canon DSLR and GoPro HD footage.

It said the athletes rock a record-breaking season at Jackson Hole, immerse themselves in Japan's powder mecca Hokkaido, discover Iceland's urban side, explore the Balkan wonders of Macedonia and Montenegro, uncover first descents in Pemberton, B.C., and hit full throttle lines in perfect snow and weather at Juneau, Alaska.

Besides Post, athletes in the film include Todd Ligare, Chris Benchetler, Dylan Hood, Daron Rahlves, Rachael Burks, Dana Flahr, Mike Riddle and Josh Dirksen.
