Press Release: Bluewood Alpine Race Team to screen Warren Miller’s “Winter Starts Now” – November 13

November 1, 2021 – Bluewood Alpine Race Team (B.A.R.T.) will host a screening of Warren Miller’s Winter Starts Now, the 72nd annual ski and snowboard film by Warren Miller Entertainment, at Gesa Power House Theatre on Saturday, November 13. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. for a prefunk party (food truck, silent auction, giveaways). The film screening begins at 7:15 p.m.

Winter Starts Now will chase winter from coast to coast. From Alaska’s Prince William Sound, where the only fresh tracks encountered belong to bears, to Maine’s community of craftsmen and women devoted to sliding on snow. From kids with huge Olympic dreams to adaptive shredders who leave even the most able athletes in the dust. Viewers will road trip with big mountain skiers Marcus Caston and Connery Lundin as they chase winter all the way to Alaska, before catching up with speed riding legend JT Holmes, and meet new friends like Madison Rose and Vasu Sojitra.

Winter Starts Now takes viewers on a journey to the highest peak in America, to the best groomed trails at beloved resorts, and to the mom & pop’s that have stood their ground throughout the everchanging ski world. The film is an homage to every skier who lives for the thrill and finds solace on the chairlift.

This event is a rental by Bluewood Alpine Race Team (B.A.R.T), a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and inspiring life-long participation in the sport of skiing, character development through good sportsmanship and hard work, family cohesion through mutual participation and fellowship through teamwork. For more information about B.A.R.T. visit skibart.org.

General admission tickets ($24) are available online at www.phtww.org or by calling the Gesa Power House Theatre box office at 509-529-6500. All proceeds go toward the B.A.R.T. youth.

Additional precautions, such as required mask use, will be observed based on the latest guidance from state and county health departments.


About Gesa Power House Theatre

The historic Gesa Power House Theatre is a 300-seat performing arts venue, located in downtown Walla Walla. The 120-year-old building was once the Walla Walla Gas Plant, built to produce coal gas used to light the streets, businesses, and homes of Walla Walla. In 2011 the Gesa Power House Theatre building was transformed into a state-of-the-art playhouse for live performance. The interior design of the theatre was inspired by Shakespeare’s own intimate Blackfriars Theatre in London, England.

The Gesa Power House Theatre is on the Washington State Building Preservation Commission list of State historic buildings and on the National Register of Historic Places. The venue also hosts a variety of other cultural events, musical concerts, and private events (including weddings).
