The West Kootenay EcoSociety is bringing the ski film ALL IN to Nelson on Wednesday, November  28 at the Civic Theatre at 6:30 p.m.

During the event, there are two guest speakers: Laura Waterer, multiple time winner of Coldsmoke Powder Festival, ski patroller, and avalanche trainer and Trace Cooke, professional skier, past Freeride World Tour competitor and freestyle coach.

Tickets are $15  general admission, with giveaway prizes including lift tickets, ski clothing and more.

ALL IN is Matchstick Productions latest ski movie, featuring deep pow, cliff drops, gnarly big mountain descents, and an equal cast of women and men. Get ready for an action-packed, cinematic delight celebrating the wonder and enjoyment of winter. Starring Angel Collinson, Michelle Parker, Tatum Monod, Elyse Saugstad, Mark Abma, Wiley Miller, Johnny Collinson, and Cody Townsend, this is a film that is sure to be as impressive as it is riveting.

“We wanted to celebrate winter and our love of skiing in the West Kootenays,” said Erin Thompson, Community Engagement Coordinator at the West Kootenay EcoSociety. “ ALL IN is a great way to start off the ski season and get you, your friends, and your family stoked.”

ALL IN has many meanings – it refers to greater inclusivity in the sport, the complete dedication of the athletes, and in terms of climate change, the high stakes of taking action now or dealing with increasingly severe consequences. Join us in rejoicing in what we have, and imagining a future with renewable energy and champagne powder.

“EcoSociety is taking action on climate change and we’re excited to show this film because we’re literally all in this challenge together,” said Thompson. “We all need to be involved in the transition to 100% renewable energy because we all use fossil fuels directly or indirectly. Mounds of fresh powder are every skier’s dream, but less snow will affect us all as summers get hotter and fresh water supplies diminish.”

Tickets are available at the Civic Theatre or civictheatre.ca

West Kootenay EcoSociety is a non-profit community-driven organization that works to bring together local residents to protect the natural environment while building just, equitable, healthy, and livable communities in the West Kootenay region.
