IT ALL STARTED WHEN...

Troy Hawks, Marketing Director for Sunlight Mountain Resort, approached Chris Tribble of the True Media Foundation in the fall of 2016. Troy wanted to create a film festival that would get people "stoked" for the upcoming ski season and to celebrate Sunlight's 50th Anniversary. With True Media Foundation's speciality in producing media with social impact, they were the perfect partners to help bring these events to life. 

In its inaugural year, the Winter Stoke Film Festival featured sold-out events at the Glenwood Spring's Vaudeville Revue on December 1st and Carbondale's Crystal Theater on December 8th, 2016. Seven locally produced films were featured followed by Warren Miller Entertainment’s “Here, There, Everywhere”at the Vaudeville Revue and Level 1's “Pleasure” at the Crystal Theater. 

With over 200 attendees in the first year, event organizers decided to make this an annual event and are excitedly working to feature work from more producers in the Roaring Fork Valley. Share your Winter Stoke!

2016 Winners

Michelle Smith moved to the Rocky Mountains from the east coast in 2002 to pursue a lifestyle that revolved around a passion for challenging herself with mountain adventures. As she immersed herself into this lifestyle, she discovered that what engaged her the most was not her own quest, but the community and characters that she encountered in the mountains.

Redstone, Colorado is a town made from dreams. Framed by snow-draped evergreens & jagged red canyon walls, it is difficult to imagine a more idyllic mountain town. Today, Redstone, population 130, relies on tourism to survive, yet its personality and sense of history thrives. In this video, Michelle walked its streets and explored the surrounding canyons and mountainsides in hopes of feeling the Redstone dream for at least a moment. This video shows what she found.

Russell Brown was born in Glenwood Springs and is 60 years old. He’s worked for the local phone company for 31 years and currently coaches boys soccer at Glenwood High school in the fall and has been skiing every winter at Sunlight since 1972.

He is also often the first to be in line on a powder day and he can almost ways be found with his camera in hand to capture those "great moments on great days." In his film, Sunny Laps, he captures some spring skiing with his son Hunter and friend Luke. Here is Sunny Laps.
