A winter storm of ski and snowboard video premiere parties will pummel Denver and Boulder over the next two months, as local theaters roll out the white carpet for VIPs (Very Important Pros), local/national/international filmmakers and snow-dancing revelers.
We've put together the most comprehensive guide we could muster -- with trailers galore, to whet your stoke -- and will be adding info as new events pop up on our Ski Porn Doppler Radar. (If you have info on any, post it in the comments section below.)
Which of these flicks are you most looking forward to seeing? The first is going off tonight...
