Start the season with some winter-is-almost-here events to get the in the spirit.

A 2013 winner at the Tribeca Film Festival, “McConkey,” is one of the must-see movies of the season and it’s showing at The Depot on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 8 p.m.

“This is a super powerful movie about the life and death of Shane McConkey, that won’t leave a dry eye in the room for those who know what his legacy is,” said Morgan.

Admission is free but the event is a fundraiser to benefit the Shane McConkey Foundation. The event is sponsored by The City Garage, Holiday Valley, K2 Skis, Mountain Hardware and Red Bull.

Another great movie, Nike’s “Never Not,” will be playing at The Depot at 8 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 20, and is presented by The Boardroom, Nike Snowboarding and Holiday Valley.

Morgan said this one is a two-part movie with incredible cinematography that takes viewers on a global journey with the Nike snowboarding team as they chase the dream.

If you couldn’t hang with the Line Traveling Circus last year, there’s good news! The crew will return to Holiday Valley on Jan. 26 when Andy Parry brings back his free-ski athlete tour. Boarders can meet in the rail park at 10 a.m. and shred for the day, then enjoy a signing and after-party at The City Garage.
