The Meeting to convene in Aspen

Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN – The Meeting, the annual pre-season event held by Aspen Skiing Co., will show 11 top ski and snowboard movies to get skiers and riders tuned up for winter and to bring some of the top snowsports folks to town Sept. 29 to Oct. 1.

The seventh annual event features a packed schedule of movies, live music, parties and an awards ceremony.

The movies include:

• “The Grand Bizarre” by Poor Boyz Productions: The high energy production captivates viewers with insane multi-kinked urban rails, huge wall-rides and epic powder runs.

• “After Dark” by Level 1: Producer Josh Berman does an incredible job of blending the “go big or go home” style of the backcountry with the newer technical riding of the streets.

• “The Art of Flight” by Red Bull Media and Brain Farm Digital Cinema: The creators blend an aggressive snowboard film with the constant stresses involved in the snowboarding cinematography industry.
