Calling All Knuckle-Draggers

Start the après-ski season early

If you’ve been finding yourself

coming home at the end of a long day, closing your eyes, cracking open a cold one, and pretending you’re in the lodge listening to a Marley cover band while you casually exaggerate how you dominated that C-box when no one was looking—well, you’re not alone. The summer has been long enough, and it’s time to put on your giant faux-Rasta wool hat, grab all your

bandannas, and go watch some new snowboarding films. The snowboarders’ collective Think Thank is celebrating the big-screen release of its new film, Thanks Brain, with live music, never-ending beer (with ID), a raffle and prizes, and enough stickers to decorate your buddy’s VW van. Thanks Brain features everything from grinding a two-story fire escape to big-mountain boarding and will be presented alongside other short films by Think Thank and Summit at Snoqualmie.
