This Weekend in Stoke: Snowboard on the Rocks drops in
Mmm... totally! "We are looking forward to 10,000 snowboarders getting together to celebrate the sport and the start of the new season," says Waide Hoyt, production manager for Standard Films. The company is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its Totally Board series tonight with the world premiere of TB:20 at Snowboard on the Rocks ($25, get there at 6 p.m. if you're after autographs), and Hoyt's predicted head count won't be far off: Red Rocks Amphitheatre seats just shy of 10,000, and organizers say it's on track to sell out. "Everything worked out with Colorado hosting the world premiere, being such a huge hub for snowboarding," Hoyt says. Cheer extra loud when Kimmy Fasani's part comes on: She filmed it here in Colorado at Silverton Mountain, and Silverton will be among the local ski areas offering discounts to Snowboard on the Rocks ticket holders.
TB:20 trailer and more weekend stoke after the jump...
"Do you have any idea what the street value of this mountain is?" If the three snowboard film premieres in a row at Snowboard on the Rocks only managed to leave you jonesin' for more, get another snow stoke fix at the afterparty tonight at the Bluebird Theatre, featuring the local premiere of the Videograss film Retrospect (11:30 p.m., tickets $10).
Yes, we write about ski stuff, too! For a two-plank dose, hit up the world premiere of Attack of La Niña from Crested Butte-based Matchstick Productions on Saturday night at the Boulder Theater (7 p.m., 21+ encore at 9:30 p.m., $18.50 ticket comes with a half-off coupon for a lift ticket at Crested Butte Mountain Resort).
