Out of Thin Air: A Himalayan Life Film Premiere and Fundraising Event
This is a private rental open to the public, not a Gold Town event
- Thur. Dec 1 at 6:30pm
After six gruelling days covering over 600km with a total elevation gain of 26,000ft, Himalayan Life CEO and Founder, Daniel Burgi and five friends, completed Altitude: the Ride for Himalayan Life: a challenging high-altitude cycle over Khardung La Pass and Chang La Pass – two of the world’s highest mountain passes. This challenging ride was not to check off an item from a personal bucket list but to raise awareness for children’s education in Nepal and India. Through navigating the challenging mountain roads, the extreme altitude, and thin air, the team was able to, in a small way, touch on the reality of the lives of the families and children we serve.
Please join us to watch the Altitude Ride Film Premiere at our Out of Thin Air Fundraising event. Here you will see firsthand how gruelling and emotional the ride was for Daniel and his team and learn more about how Himalayan Life is helping children and families in this challenging landscape where the air is so thin.

Eaglecrest Ski Area, Alaska Powder Descents, and Coastal Alaska Avalanche Center are excited to announce that the Snovember film series is returning to Eaglecrest for three nights of mountain films and festivities! Tickets are $15 for entry. Alaska is a legendary center in the ski world. As Alaskans, we want to celebrate the incredible skiing and adventures shared in these mountains we all love – and the community created by these shared experiences. This is a film festival for Alaskan locals: made by Alaskans, skied by Alaskans, and showcased by Alaskans. From steep spine lines to Turnagain powder meadows or Hilltop toddler magic carpet laps, we love it all.

In Elegance Bratton’s deeply moving film inspired by his own story, a young, gay Black man, rejected by his mother and with few options for his future, decides to join the Marines, doing whatever it takes to succeed in a system that would cast him aside. But even as he battles deep-seated prejudice and the grueling routines of basic training, he finds unexpected camaraderie, strength, and support in this new community, giving him a hard-earned sense of belonging that will shape his identity and forever change his life.
