The Story stars Bode Miller, Lindsey Vonn, Bobby Brown, Willie Bogner, Chris Davenport, Kristi Leskinen, Chris Benchetler, Reggie & Zack Crist, Mike Douglas and numerous other stars of skiing, snowboarding, speed flying, paragliding, river surfing and kite skiing. The film takes viewers into deep character dives with the most famous skiers to the most obscure ski bums as well as to the top of Mount Everest, never before skied steeps in Alaska and various gut-wrenching variations on human flight.
A short film, titled Shane and the McConkeys will also be on the Tour. This is a unique cinematic portrayal of Shane McConkey seen as the doting father, loving husband, and friend that are as much part of Shane's legacies as ski progression and innovation.
5 Time World Cup Champion and 2009 Paralympic SportsWoman of the Year Stephanie Victor, one of the featured skiers in The Story will introduce the film and do a Q&A Saturday evening.
Giveaways each night: skis, Sorel boots, lift tickets, plus other swag!
