In Deep: The Skiing Experience


The Egyptian Theatre is waxing its skis and hitting the slopes with a new documentary titled, In Deep: The Skiing Experience, presented by the Emmy-nominated Matchstick Productions Company. The film is currently on its 2009 World Tour, stopping in Boise for all you powder fans. The documentary includes holy-shit stunts by some of the globe’s premier ski celebrities, including Mark Abma, Sean Pettit and Eric Hjorleifson. These daredevils ski down almost sheer rock faces, using the mountain to rocket themselves hundreds of feet in the air before performing a quick back flip and landing perfectly—and then do it all over again. You can purchase tickets at the theater’s box office or at Helly Hansen on Broad Street.

Tuesday, Oct. 6. Doors open at 7 p.m., film at 8 p.m., $15, Egyptian Theatre, 700 W. Main St., Boise,
