BEAVER CREEK ” This one-hour documentary is about heli-skiing and was locally produced by a Beaver Creek company using a local director, cameramen and skiers.

“Our goal was to provide a one-hour documentary about helicopter skiing for those who have been, plan to go and for those who wish to go but can now enjoy the experience in their living room on their HD TVs,” said Mark Schelde, executive producer.

“Heli-Skiing: Living the Dream,” shot at Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing this past April, was directed by local producer Bart Garton, production manager Andi Malboeuf, creative director Chris Ongarello and features local ski champions and Beaver Creek ski instructors Willy Glanzning and Dieter Frank.

“It was great working on this project for Discovery HD Theater, who provided us the opportunity to shoot the show in high definition to capture some of the most incredible scenery with world-class skiers. I would also like to thank local cameramen Jim Wedlake and Reid Nelson for their hard work and behind the scenes appearances in the show,” Director Bart Garton said.

For those that do not have HD televisions and/or HD channels you can watch the show in Beaver Creek at the Coyote Cafe and meet the cast and crew after the 6 p.m. show Sunday night.
