FADE TO WINTER World Premiere press release



Several world-class athletes and ski industry heavyweights confirmed to attend the world premiere of groundbreaking new movie at Paramount Theatre.

CRESTED BUTTE, CO (September 21, 2015) – The latest addition to a long list of award-winning ski movies from MSP Films, titled FADE TO WINTER, will debut on Saturday, October 10th at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Denver, Colorado. An expected crowd of 1,800 viewers will be treated to free 2-for-1 lift tickets from Copper Mountain, chances to win new skis and outerwear, athlete poster signings, live entertainment, and incredible action on the big screen.

MSP’s 23rd annual ski film – filmed and edited in cutting-edge 4K ultra high definition – focuses on fun, because that is what skiing is all about; first-timers and professionals alike share that same mentality. Whether chasing deep powder in Japan, ripping with local groms in New England, searching for new lines in Alaska, or building backcountry jumps in Iceland, every aspect of this compelling new film showcases the inner spirit of every skier’s burning desire to get out on the snow.

Many of the athletes in the film, who demonstrate a variety of skiing styles, will be in attendance – including X Games champion and U.S. Olympian Bobby Brown. “I’m so hyped for the premiere of FADE TO WINTER!” exclaims Brown. “I fit in as much filming as I could last season. It took me to some really amazing places and I can’t wait to relive all the good times on the screen. Having the world premiere in my hometown of Denver is going to be unreal!” Markus Eder, Michelle Parker, Mark Abma, Tanner Rainville, Aaron Blunck, James Heim, Sean Jordan, PK Hunder, Alex Schlopy, and others round out the all-star cast.

This film was made possible with the support of MSP’s dedicated partners. FADE TO WINTER is presented by Under Armour, with support from Head Skis, Freeskier Magazine, Sony Action Cam, Jaybird, and Avatech.
