Ski movie “Drop Everything” makes Tahoe premiere at Squaw Valley
If you go ...
What: “Drop Everything”
When: Wednesday, Oct. 11, 7 p.m.
Where: Squaw Valley
Tahoe’s next ski movie screening comes in the form of Matchstick Productions’ “Drop Everything,” presented by Under Armour.
On Wednesday, Oct. 11, grab friends, family — anyone who’s looking forward to the upcoming ski season — and head to Squaw Valley for the basin’s premiere.
“With ‘Drop Everything,’ I want to put entertainment at the forefront. I want people walking away from our ski movie smiling, laughing and feeling like they can’t wait to click into their skis again,” said director Scott Gaffney.
“So we’re going back to a bit of an old school style: personal skier segments, a whole lot of character and personality, several elaborate skits and quick-hitting comedy. Simply put, I want to deliver a rollercoaster ride that no one wants to get off of.”
“Drop Everything” highlights the talents of the world’s top skiers — including Mark Abma, Markus Eder, Michelle Parker and more — who navigate the terrain of Meadow Lodge, Whistler and Revelstoke (of British Columbia), Crested Butte and Silverton (of Colorado) and our own Lake Tahoe.
“This will easily be the best-looking film we’ve ever released. Vivid colors, precise picture detail and rich audio will make this a very memorable viewing experience,” said Steve Winter, one of Matchstick Productions’ founders.
