Join the Colorado Mountain Club for a film series event featuring "Sisters of Skimo," along with presentations from the coach of the USA Ski Mountaineering (Skimo) Racing Team, Joe Howdyshell and Skimo Racing Expert Physical Therapist, Nathan De Graaf.

Nathan De Graaf is a physical therapist for Howard Head Sports Medicine, who works with Olympic athletes in the Vail Valley. De Graaf will be giving a presentation on something all Colorado Mountain Club members, and outdoor enthusiasts will find interesting: How to train for mountain sports, and common injuries from recreating in Colorado's mountains + how to overcome them!

We will also be joined by the coach of USA's Skimo Racing team, Joe Howdyshell whose presentation will focus on introducing the sport of Skimo racing to an audience of outdoor enthusiasts who may not be as familiar! Howdyshell is also the CEO of Summit Endurance Academy, one of the Vail Valley's leading endurance athlete coaching programs.

The presentations will lead us right into the featured film. "Sisters of Skimo" tells the journey of Sierra Anderson and her fellow female competitors in ski mountaineering racing, as they vie to qualify to compete at "the Olympics of Skimo," the World Championships in Switzerland. Along the way, Sierra and her "sisters of skimo" will discover what it means when the competition lifestyle goes beyond just who stands on the podium and becomes a journey about family and camaraderie in sport.

The CMC will give out rad prizes and you'll enjoy another fun night with your outdoor community!
