The Gathering Reconvenes at Red Mountain Resort

Posted By: The Ski Channel on March 13, 2012 12:22 pm

Red Mountain Resort LogoThe Gathering, presented by Salomon, will return to Red mountain Resort in Rossland, BC.  March 20-24 will mark the fourth anniversary of the occasion.

This is a unique event that brings together an international network of athletes and adventurers, writers and photographers, and most importantly, free spirits who pioneered the ski bum lifestyle.  Somewhere between when their first meeting four years ago and today, they’ve written the rules on how a proper ski event should be planned, thrown, and cleaned up after. 

The Gathering is a celebration of all things skiing.  Sport “insiders” embrace the culture and history surrounding the sport they hold in such high regard buy discussing images, stories, and the people in them. 

This is the skiing equivalent to listening to family talk about their ancestors and passing down heirlooms.  Each generation sees the sport change and develop.  By coming together with others in the industry, guests can consider where skiing and mountain culture has been and where it might go.  Through artists, athletes, and storytellers, The Gathering has become a weekend of learning and entertainment through the lore of skiing.

“We invite everyone out to RED for some awesome spring skiing and to experience The Gathering for a week of photo workshops, film and photo presentations and other festivities” declares RED’s General Manager Erik Kalacis.  “This celebration of mountain culture always delivers a great vibe and we sincerely thank Salomon and Powder Magazine for joining us to host this classic event!”
