The Flathead Valley Ski Education Foundation announced two fall events skiers won’t want to miss.
Warren Miller’s “Timeless” will play at the O’Shaughnessy in Whitefish on Nov. 15 and 16. This 70th-anniversary film features ski legends such as Glen Plake, alongside newcomers Caite Zeliff, Jaelin Kauf, and Baker Boyd. Road-trip with rippers from Arlberg to the Matterhorn, be immersed in the hometown hill of Eldora and discover a different side of Jackson Hole, plus much more.
Doors open both nights at 6 p.m. with selected short ski films at 6:30 p.m. and “Timeless” playing at 7 p.m.. Tickets are available online at www.FVSEF.org; cost is $16.74 for adults/$11.49 students in advance; or at the door $18 for adults and $15 for students.
The 13th annual Showcase of the Chefs gourmet dinner, wine tasting and auction will take place at the Lodge at Whitefish Lake on Nov. 21. This year the event is dedicated to all season pass holders, recent or longstanding, die-hard or fair weather, weekend warrior or million-foot vertical contender. Present your season pass, new or old, from Whitefish Mountain Resort or any other ski area, at the registration table to be entered for door prizes and special prizes for oldest Big Mountain pass, oldest non-Big Mountain pass, most passes (bring a photo of your collection) and best & worst pass picture.
The gourmet dinner selections will feature the chefs and entrees from Tupelo, Wasabi, Whitefish Lake Restaurant, The Boat Club and Three Forks Grille, along with wine selections carefully paired for each entrée.
Highlighting this year’s auction is a five-night/four-Day summer adventure in Hood River, Oregon. Other auction items include a gallery wrapped giclee by award-winning Whitefish artist Colt Idol, weekend ski trips to Big Sky, Fernie, Schweitzer and the Izaak Walton Inn, guided fly-fishing trips, collector’s wine and liquor offerings, artwork, jewelry, ski apparel and equipment, gift baskets from merchants all around the calley and many more items.
Again this year, there will be an opportunity for absentee bidding at the auction for people who are interested in participating but can’t be present at the event. For an updated list of auction items as well as absentee bidding instructions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets are $75 per person in advance, $85 at the door. Advance tickets are available online at www.fvsef.org, and at Sportsman & Ski Haus in Kalispell and Whitefish, Great Northern Cycle & Ski and the Lodge at Whitefish Lake.
All proceeds from both events benefit the Flathead Valley Ski Education Foundation.
