‘Some Thing Else’ ski movie premieres at Lake Tahoe

Noah Howell skis the Wasatch Mountains as part of "Some Thing Else."

A Salt Lake City production company will debut its latest offering at Lake Tahoe this week.

Tahoe Art Haus & Cinema and Alpenglow Sports will host the first local showing of the PowderWhore Productions film "Some Thing Else" on Thursday, Oct. 16 in Tahoe City.

The production company is celebrating its 10th year of making ski and snowboard films.

"Powderwhore Productions have become a mainstay during the fall series of ski movie premiers," according to a press release from Alpenglow sports. "They excel at utilizing the most interesting characters on snow, low-brow humor, and deep powder shots. It is their belief that all of these facets are highly worthy of their ten years filming the backcountry experience.

"Part ski-porn, part-documentary, 'Some Thing Else' is a propaganda piece that promotes the joys and wonder of exploring winter on skis and splitboard."

Highlights from the film include a trip to Hokkaido, Japan; a yurt stay in the Beartooth Mountains of Montana; steep spine clinics in the Tordrillo Mountains of Alaska, time with Andrew McLean in Wrangell St. Alias National Park and shots from Snowy Mountain Lodge in British Columbia with JP Auclair.
