NIC to present Warren Miller's ski and snowboard film “Higher Ground”
North Idaho College’s Snowriders Club and Lookout Pass will present the latest winter sports film from Warren Miller Entertainment titled “Higher Ground” at 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 27 in NIC’s Boswell Hall Schuler Auditorium.
Warren Miller’s “Higher Ground,” an independent movie slated to visit nearly 200 cities nationwide this winter, chronicles skiers and snowboarders in their never-ending search for new and thrilling ways to ride the snow. In the first ever high-definition film tour, “Higher Ground” takes viewers through the steeps of Alaska, terrain parks in Colorado, deep powder in British Columbia and cliffs in Switzerland.
Part action/adventure and part documentary, the film features athletes such as big mountain skiers Jeremy Nobis and Seth Morrison, Ski-Base jumping innovator Shane McConkey and Glen Plake, as well as up and coming stars like 5-year-old phenom Bridger Gile.
Tickets are $16 for adults and $12 for NIC students and those 17 and younger.
Tickets are available at the Outdoor Pursuits Office, located on the lower level of NIC’s Edminster Student Union Building, Loulou’s Sports Shop at 215 W. Kathleen in Coeur d’Alene, Vertical Earth at 206 N. Third Street and the Ski Shack at 9437 Government Way in Hayden.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Lookout Pass will offer free lift tickets to those in attendance and Loulou’s Sports Shop will giveaway certificates for a free ski hot wax.
Silver Mountain will sell their College Season Passes for $125 and Lookout Pass is offering passes for $99. Special pricing will only be available the night of the show.
