NIC to present Warren Miller's ski and snowboard film “Off the Grid”
North Idaho College’s Snowriders Club and Lookout Pass will present the latest winter sports film from Warren Miller Entertainment titled “Off the Grid” at 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 26 in NIC’s Boswell Hall Schuler Auditorium.
Warren Miller’s “Off the Grid,” an independent movie slated to visit nearly 200 cities nationwide this winter, chronicles the world’s best winter sports athletes as they embark on a global mission to experience the deepest snow, the steepest mountains and the world’s most intense snowball fight. The film brings viewers deeper into the heart of the mountains with true cinematic widescreen as part of the country’s only high-definition nationwide tour.
Part action/adventure and part documentary, the film features skier Jaime Pierre and his world record-setting 245-foot snow-covered cliff drop as well as other outdoor sports athletes and the World Snowball Fighting Championships in Hokkaido, Japan.
Tickets are $14 for adults and $10 for NIC students, senior citizens and those 17 and younger.
Tickets are available at the door or can be purchased in advance at the Outdoor Pursuits Office located on the lower level of NIC’s Edminster Student Union Building, Loulou’s Moosecamp Sports Shop at 215 W. Kathleen in Coeur d’Alene and the Ski Shack at 9437 Government Way in Hayden.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Lookout Pass will offer free lift tickets to those in attendance. During intermission, prizes and raffle items will be given away by event sponsors. Raffle items include a custom snowboard deck from Ascension Snowboards and a night in a king-feature suite with two flat screen TVs and a Jacuzzi tub at the Coeur d’Alene Holiday Inn Express. Attendees will also receive giveaways for items such as $240 in certificates for shop work at Loulou’s Moosecamp Sports Shop, a season pass from Schweitzer Mountain, day-lift passes from Silver Mountain and prize baskets from Vertical Earth, Jact Clothing, Wintersport, Sports Creel, L77, Ski Shack, Sports Outlet, Peak Adventures and Mountain Gear.
