Piton Productions - Legends of the Fall Line

One of the coolest things about my gig at Backcountry.com (besides writing on this blog) is that I get to find opportunities within the mountain communities that we can embrace. One of those was a young film crew called Piton Productions who last year set out to tell the story of ski mountaineering history in the Tetons, the alps of the United States and the birth place of ski mountaineering in the US.

So we ponied up a bit of cash and helped push the dream along. Piton Productions recently finished this their first full length documentary entitled, Teton Skiing; Legends of the Fall Line and I've got to say that it is top notch. From their website:
The Tetons have a rich history in North American skiing and ski mountaineering. They have been an epicenter of activity for some of this countries finest alpinists and skiers.

Legends Of The Fall Line will explore the history of skiing in the Tetons from the early days of the pioneers, to the modern day ski mountaineers.

The first public showing of this film will be on Thursday, February 8th.
Time: 7:30
Location: Brewvies, Salt Lake City, Utah

Proceeds from this showing will benefit the Utah Avalanche Center.

There will be other public showings in Jackson, Wyoming and likely Bozeman, Montana. Contact Piton Productions if you'd like to have a public showing in your town.

Backcountry.com will have the video for sale or you will be able to pick it up for free as a gift when you purchase select products from Cloudveil at Backcountry.com. Stay tuned.
