WOLF to host ‘Winterland’ at Liberty Theatre today

Special to The PREVIEW
For the past five years, the Winter Outdoor Learning Fund (WOLF) has been busy fostering outdoor awareness among the youth of southwestern Colorado.
Most of WOLF’s involvement has been in the form of providing scholarships for Avalanche 1 and Wilderness First Aid courses; in fact, this nonprofit has awarded more than 25 scholarships since its inception. Many of its board members spend the winter months as ski patrollers, making sure that Wolf Creek Ski Area is safe for all winter enthusiasts. They know the importance of being knowledgeable and prepared in the snowy backcountry and want to pass that along to our community.
They also enjoy all the outdoor recreation that skiing has to offer. That’s why this Thursday, Dec. 5, WOLF will host a fundraiser at the Liberty Theatre. It will be showing Teton Gravity Research’s film, “Winterland,” a new film celebrating the culture of skiing and snowboarding from its humble beginnings to its modern day pioneers. Filmed in British Columbia, Austria, Norway, Alaska and Wyoming, these breathtaking terrains are “crushed” by today’s winter athletes.
The doors to the Liberty Theatre open at 6 p.m. and the viewing begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 and beer from Riff Raff Brewing Company will be available for purchase, as well. Proceeds from this fundraiser benefit WOLF scholarship recipients.
