We’re gearing up for another season at the Pass and wanted to pass on information about a few events coming up.
This week, we have a screening of Sweetgrass Productions latest release, “Hand Cut” on Thursday Oct 2 at the Oriental Theater. It’s a great film and proceeds from this show will benefit our partner organization, the Backcountry Skiers Alliance. (we’ll also be watching the VP debates at the bar, for some real entertainment.)
Our Avalanche Awareness Classes begin next week, Wed Oct 8th, with a big kick off at The Pub in Winter Park. As usual we’ll host several of these and hope you can attend at least one. Check out www.berthoudpass.org for a full calendar. (still looking for venues in Boulder, Ft Collins or Golden, if you can help, please let us know)
We really hope you can make it for our annual bash Friday Nov 7th, at the Oriental Theater featuring the newest Powderwhore film, “The Pact.” This is a killer event, as anyone who’s attended in the past can attest. Big raffle, drink specials, a full length film featuring some of the best telemarkers in the world. You know the drill!
Details about the films are below.
Look forward to seeing you all real soon!

About the Film:
From the hand-fired railroad days in Revelstoke to the miners of
Colorado’s San Juan Mountains, Hand Cut blends old-timer wisdom with
self-propelled, big mountain, lines from Alaska, British Columbia, and
The Hand Cut release includes endless pillow lines in the BC interior;
exposed descents in the Coast Range with ski mountaineering legend
John Chilton; brilliantly shot inverts over the old wood mines on Red
Mountain Pass, Colorado; and the original deep-country blues of
John-Alex Mason. Hand Cut: self-propelled stories brought to life in
High Definition and brilliant 16mm film.
