We want to give a huge thank you to everyone who's tuned in, written in, and shared our Movie Night Series with others in need of adventure inspiration during the past couple months of quarantine and social distancing. As bitter it is to be on the final night in the series, it is so much sweeter to be sharing this particular lineup which features our favorite films from the past seven weeks of Movie Nights.
From a ski guide who's drinking from the Fountain of Youth in Silverton, CO, to a crew of five blind veterans kayaking the Grand Canyon for the first time, these movies inspired us to a new level and we have found ourselves watching them time and time again at home.
We hope you continue to enjoy these movies as much as we have, and that they keep you inspired and ready for adventure when it's to come. Now, sit back, ease into the weekend, and enjoy the Closing Night of Mountain Standard Movie Night.
