News: Storm Show Studios' Action Jackson Premieres Saturday

Next Up

November 4, 2011

"Action Jackson," Storm Show Studio's eleventh feature film, premieres Saturday, Nov. 5, at Snow King Resort. There will be an early showing at 6 p.m. and a late showing at 9 p.m. Tickets cost $12 in advance and $15 the day of the show and are available at JH Wine Company, The Boardroom, Wilson Backcountry and The Liquor Store. All sales benefit the Bridger-Teton National Forest Avalanche Forecast Center.

Doors open one hour before showtimes with award winning beer from Snake River Brewing Co.

Storm Show Studios founder Darrell Miller grew up in Jackson Hole and made his first shred flick in high school back in 1993. After, he kept making movies using Jackson as his backdrop. In 2000 he created his production company and has released a movie once a year ever since.

His movies are like a year book for the core Jackson ski and snowboard community, and his premieres are as much of an off-season to-do as our premiere in Teton Village. Following a 700-inch winter in Jackson Hole, the world premiere of "Action Jackson" is not to missed.

See yah there.

Here's the hype from Storm Show:

Storm Show’s 2011 ski/ride adrenaline film promises to be its most adventurous undertaking to date. The record books were shattered with over 700 inches of snowfall having blasted the Teton Range of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. As to be expected, big lines go down one after another, guys and girls alike... On display is the deepest of deep that will make your pants soggy, and massive cliff hucking that you can watch safely from your couch.

Highlights include Jeff Leger’s legendary 80-foot swan dives, and Adam Osgood’s 100-foot double-front flips. Also in the running is Derek Depiero’s first un-roped descent of Birdbrain Couloir in the Jackson Hole backcountry, and Travis McAlpine and Darrell Miller’s first descent of the disgustingly exposed Nomad Couloir. Yes, 2011 was one for the record books, and "Action Jackson" is the ski film that proves it. Epic!
