Mountain Shop is proud to sponsor the screening of Field Production’s new film “Being There” as part of a benefit for the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center (NWAC) and hosted by the Mazamas’ Ski Mountaineering Program.

With some of the best skiers within all aspects of modern freeskiing, and a passionate film crew equipped with the best of HD cameras, “Being There” will both thrill and amaze you. Along side amazing action shots and mind blowing scenery, this movie will give you a behind the scenes look at the production itself. You should have been there when wonder kid Jesper Tjader shocked the whole film crew with his urban skiing or when Tom Wallisch was head of production at Strandafjellet. You should have been there when Aleksander Aurdal proved how much of a man he is or when Aksel Lund Svindal had unforgettable days in Lofoten. Missed it? Well, don’t worry. This movie will take you there.

Raffle for great items, win door prizes, and enjoy food and drinks!
