Snowsports films come to the Bozone.

Before you know it, you'll be living in ski boots, Gore-Tex, and long underwear. That appeals to some, but others prefer to ease into the season. Luckily, the industry's finest filmmakers are bringing their newest creations to Bozeman to satisfy your powder fix. Here is a rundown of the season’s offerings.

Almost Ablaze 
September 17 - The Emerson; September 26 - Lone Peak Cinema
Teton Gravity Research never disappoints and this year will be no different. Their next installment of ski-film gold features an all-star lineup traveling around the globe in search of skiing's Holy Grail—the perfect combination of snow and terrain. Sponsors will be on hand giving away prizes and raffling off gear, and don't forget to bring along the kids—there’s an early showing just for the youngsters. tetongravity.com.

Higher 
September 18 - Lone Peak Cinema; October 9 - The Emerson
If you snowboard, you know Jeremy Jones, and unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last six years, you’ve heard of his Further, Deeper, Higher trilogy. The final chapter takes viewers from the Tetons to the Himalayas in pursuit of the perfect line. Stunning scenery and remarkable riding dominate the film's content, but an interview with Jones weaves its way throughout, inviting the audience into his life. Reserve tickets ahead of time as this show is bound to sell out. tetongravity.com.

Less
September 19 - The Emerson
For the park rats and jibbers out there, Level 1's got you covered. From epic wipeouts, to masterful slopestyle sequences, this film has it all and is sure to inspire some new tricks this winter. It's not all butters and aerials though, so check it out whether you mostly ride switch or not.  level1productions.com.

Something Else
September 30 - The Eagles
If you're seeking an alternative from big-budget ski porn, look no further than Powderwhore Productions' newest project. Ten years in the making, this film explores the less glamorous side of big mountain skiing, without sacrificing terrain, location, or quality, and even features a segment from our very own Beartooth Mountains. powderwhore.com.

Days of My Youth 
October 18 - Lone Peak Cinema
Many of our fondest skiing memories are from childhood: ski school, hot chocolate breaks, pizza and French fries. Matchstick Productions pays homage to the kid in all of us with the newest addition to their lineup. With two screenings at Big Sky’s Lone Peak Cinema on the same night, you might have to stick around for a double-feature. skimovie.com.

No Turning Back 
October 26 - The Emerson
If the ski-film industry has one man to thank, that man is Warren Miller. He produced his first film in 1949, and while he isn’t actively involved in production these days, his legacy lives on. Pay tribute to the original and check out this season’s installment, some of which was shot in our own backyard. Tickets are available online and through the film's Facebook page.

So there you have it, and while these films can't replace powder turns, they'll have to hold us over until the cold smoke falls again
