McCALL – Brundage Mountain’s annual Pray for Snow party is back, and this year includes a McCall exclusive premiere of Teton Gravity Research’s (TGR) new movie “Magic Hour.”
The Pray for Snow party will be held Saturday, November 5 from 4-9 p.m. at the Ludwig Terrace in downtown McCall’s Ponderosa Center. Free entry.
Live music and family activities will kick off the celebration. A snowflake-making booth will be open from 4-6 p.m. and live music will begin at 4:15 p.m. The premiere of the film starts around 6:30 p.m.
The Meaning of TGR’s “Magic Hour”
“The magic hour is not so much a particular time of day as a culmination of highlights in some of the most beautiful and wildest places on the planet. For 27 years, Teton Gravity Research has been searching for the right place with the right crew at the perfect time to live life to the fullest.
“Between the thrill of the hunt and the peace of floating up a mountain, the sum of our experiences becoming greater than its parts is what we’re after. If you ask us, our annual “Magic Hour” snow movie is exactly that.
“’Magic Hour’ was filmed on location in Jackson Hole, Alaska, BC and Montana and features some of the biggest names in freestyle/big mountain skiing and riding.”
Brundage general manager Ken Rider is happy to be back at the snow party. “Brundage Mountain is thrilled to partner with Teton Gravity and the Ponderosa Center to bring back this ski resort tradition,” he said. “It’s always a pleasure to see our neighbors and our ski and board buddies get together to share a pre-season moment. Adding a first TGR to the event should make it even more fun.
Food and drink will be available from 4-8 p.m. via the mobile Brundage Bar and Bandit Food Truck, featuring a full liquor bar and featured beers from sponsor TGR Sierra Nevada.
Fire pits will be provided, but participants will need to dress in warm layers and bring their own camping chairs and blankets. TGR and Brundage will be giving away free giveaways throughout the event and a grand prize after the film. The Ponderosa Center will hold a separate raffle with prizes including ski and winter gear for adults and children.
