Summit Series concludes with wild and scenic films
STRATTON — Stratton Mountain School's annual Summit Series is back for 2019, featuring film for the first time. The series concludes at 7 p.m. Saturday with the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, showcasing the Earth's beauty while illustrating the challenges facing the planet and the communities working to defend it.
Experience the adrenaline of kayaking the wildest rivers, climb the highest peaks, and trek across the globe with adventure films from around the world. Stratton Mountain School has 10 short films on tap, including: "Treeline," exploring our connection to the forest and taking us through the enshrined cypress groves of Japan, the towering red cedars of British Columbia, and the ancient bristlecones of Nevada; "RJ Ripper," following four-time Nepali National Cycling Champion Rajesh (RJ) Magar from the chaotic streets of Kathmandu to the imposing ridges of the Himalayas; and "Brotherhood of Skiing," highlighting the work of the National Brotherhood of Skiers, an organization striving for inclusivity and opportunity for all on the slopes. Additional films transport viewers to America's National Parks, the glaciers of Greenland, the summit of Mt. Everest, the rugged Olympic Peninsula, and the moonlit streets of Los Angeles to name a few.
Alongside the diverse lineup of films slated to screen at SMS, attendees will enjoy raffles from brands including Peak Design, CLIF Bar, and Klean Kanteen as well as event sponsor Progressive Asset Management. This network of financial advisors will also be on site to offer complimentary investment portfolio reviews for attendees, screening for socially and environmentally responsible investment concerns.
Tickets to Stratton Mountain School's Screening of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival are $10 for adults and $5 for students. For more information, visit gosms.org/summit-series, or call 802.856.1120.
