McKinney Nordic Ski Club Presents

With the generous support of our local Oliver Theatre, we are bringing a documentary to Oliver called This Mountain Life. Oliver Theatre is donating all door proceeds and a portion of the concession sales to help with our clubs fundraising!

This movie, set in the mountains of British Columbia, documents a mother/daughter duo attempting a bitterly cold 2300-kilometer ski trek from Canada to Alaska through the treacherous Coast Mountains; a journey that has been completed only once before, and never by a female duo. Their adventure is  interspersed with beautifully crafted portraits of high-altitude human endurance: the gripping story an avalanche burial; a group of nuns who inhabit a mountain retreat to be closer to God; an impassioned alpinist; a focused snow artist; a couple who has been living off grid in the mountains for nearly 50 years.

You can watch the trailer or learn a bit more about the movie at
Come out for some great entertainment and support the ski club!
