Joe Lahout

Film Screening — Duration: 4 mins

Joe Lahout has been outfitting skiers of the Northeast since the very beginning — when a lift ticket at Cannon Mountain cost only 25 cents. Born in 1922 in an apartment above Lahout’s Country Clothing and Ski Shop in Littleton, New Hampshire, Lahout still runs America’s oldest ski shop, which is crammed full of vintage leather ski boots and U.S. Ski Team memorabilia. Joe Lahout is the story of an old-timer who still believes in skiing’s simple roots: speed, freedom and the great outdoors. 

The Great Siberian Traverse

Film Screening — Duration: 28 mins

With a cinematic nod to Wes Anderson, The Great Siberian Traverse sets off on a grand journey to ski across Russia. Professional skiers Ingrid Backstrom, Mike Martini and Callum Pettit travel via the Trans-Siberian railway in wintery Siberia for a ski trip that is as much about trans-continental travel as it is about shredding in all its forms: backcountry skiing, resort skiing, powder skiing and so much more.  

Sierra Quitiquit: How Did I Get Here

Film Screening — Duration: 58 mins

With a résumé that includes professional skier and successful model, you might think Sierra Quitiquit has it made. But as is so often the truth, it’s more complicated than what appears on the surface.

Sierra Quitiquit: How Did I Get Here is an intimate portrait of a woman from humble beginnings whose devotion to her family leads her to hoist a huge amount of responsibility on her shoulders. This coming-of-age film follows Quitiquit on far-flung adventures, through heartbreak and exploration and, ultimately, to a place of real growth.
