‘Flow State’ to air at Firehouse
Skiers get ready: Warren Miller Entertainment’s “Flow State” will be shown at the Firehouse Center for the Arts on Saturday, Jan. 5.
Hosted by Olympic gold medalist Jonny Moseley, the ski film brings viewers “to the top of the world’s most striking peaks, taking you on an exhilarating journey across the globe to Norway, Austria, California, Switzerland and beyond. The powder in Japan will send you scrambling to tune-up your gear, the gravity in Telluride will have you scheduling an avalanche refresher course, and the steeps in Alaska will drive you to push a little harder during your next preseason workout.”
Among the skiers making appearances in the film are Olympic gold medalist Ted Ligety, Colby West, Chris Davenport, Jess McMillan and David Wise.
There will be two showings of the film at 3 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $11 for adults and $9 for students and seniors. To purchase, visit the box office or go online to www.firehouse.org.
