Blister Speaker Series at Western - Luke Jacobson October 25 2019

Blister Speaker Series at Western Colorado University: Innovators & Influencers in the Outdoor Industry

We are excited to announce the return of this first-of-its-kind series at Western.

Few universities can match Western’s access to world-class outdoor recreation, which is a big reason why Western attracts so many exceptional mountain sports athletes and students interested in careers in the outdoor industry.

Started last year, this new BLISTER Speaker Series at Western will bring to the Gunnison Valley each month during the school year a preeminent athlete, founder, author, activist, filmmaker, or product designer in the outdoor industry, allowing Western students to hear from and interact with those individuals who are currently shaping the industry.

This outdoor industry speaker series, coupled with Western’s first-of-its-kind Outdoor Industry MBA program, will further Western’s role in cultivating the future leaders of outdoor-oriented businesses and media.

NEXT GUEST:  Luke Jacobson, Moment Skis CEO

WHEN: 7 pm TUESDAY, November 5TH

WHERE: University Center Theater at Western Colorado University, Gunnison, CO

Luke Jacobson has been running Moment Skis for years, and they are now the largest ski manufacturer in the United States. Come hear Luke talk about managing the significant growth of this indie brand; manufacturing in the USA; crucial decisions he’s had to make and how he would now assess those decisions in hindsight; and more.

WHAT ELSE?

Each month during the school year, BLISTER founder, Jonathan Ellsworth, will lead a free, open-to-the-public Q&A at Western, and there will be additional opportunities for Western students to engage with our speakers in classroom settings, informal group meetings, or out on the trail or ski hill.
Please stay tuned for updates on our upcoming events.

Warren Miller’s “Timeless” - Friday, November 1st 2019 October 04 2019

 

RENO, NV: Year after year, ski and snowboard enthusiasts of all ages look forward to the coming of winter. This fall, the High Fives Foundation confirms that the joys of winter are eternal, with the showing of Warren Miller Entertainment’s 70th full-length feature film, Timeless, presented by Volkswagen and the world premiere of High Fives Foundation’s 10th installment of their documentary series B.A.S.I.C.S (Be Aware Safe In Critical Situations). The documentary film, Ten Years of Safety, will premiere Friday, November 1st, 2019 at The Reno Ballroom preceding the Warren Miller film, Timeless.

 

Much of the world has changed since Warren Miller started making ski films in 1949, but the passion of snowriders across the globe has stayed the same. Timeless emulates the enduring spirit of winter and gives a deserving nod to the past seven decades of ski cinematography, while looking toward the future. Get ready to kick off your winter with a cast of fresh faces, inspirational locales, plenty of laughs, camaraderie, and a classic blend of the new and old.


“It’s incredible, looking at the fact that this is number 70,” says narrator Jonny Moseley. “Every year I still get that same feeling I got when I was a kid watching ski movies. I enjoy watching them now more than ever, and that is what Timeless celebrates.”

 

The evening will include an array of winter sport vendors, raffle prizes, celebrity athletes including J.T. Holmes, Amie Engerbretson and Connery Lundin, and the opportunity to see two amazing films. Tickets are available online at renowarrenmiller.eventbrite.com.


All attendees will receive one voucher for a single day 2-for-1 free lift ticket valid at Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows. Complimentary ticket must be of equal or lesser value than the purchased ticket, and must be used on the same date. Offer valid Monday through Friday from Opening Day 2019 through Closing Day 2020, EXCEPT FOR Saturdays and Sundays and the following blackout dates: 12.31.19, 1.18.20 through 1.19.20, AND 2.15.20 through 2.16.20.

High Fives Foundation is a nonprofit based in Truckee, California that focuses on

preventing life-changing injuries and providing resources and hope if they happen. It was

established as a way to "pay-it-forward" to help injured individuals and veterans by founder, Roy

Tuscany, after his own recovery from a spinal cord injury. B.A.S.I.C.S is a program service of High Fives that illuminates the importance of safety and awareness while engaging in outdoor sports. To date B.A.S.I.C.S films have reached nearly 500,000 viewers worldwide.

David Wise - WORLD'S HIGHEST AIR OUT OF A QUARTERPIPE TO BANKED LANDING May 16 2019

I wouldn’t call myself a world record chaser. I guess that’s ironic for a guy who now holds two records. All I can say is that I’m lucky to get to ride some of the coolest features ever built at Audi Nines and once I get there, something takes over and I can’t help but send it. Please enjoy the behind the scenes cut of a new worlds highest air out of a quarterpipe!
