twe12ve tells the tale of a winter defined by feast of famine.

Double feature for a duo of good causes

The nights are getting colder, and you know what that means — time to pull out the board and start dreaming of pow. To add fuel to the fire, Absinthe Films has teamed up with the Kootenay Carshare Co-operative, Tribute, Ripping Giraffe and Valhalla Pure Outfitters to bring its carbon neutral Sphere of Influence tour to Nelson. This annual tour gives you a chance to meet featured riders and see the latest snowboard films on the big screen first.

Catch the next wintry shred classic: Absinthe Films’ twel2ve, along with the YES crew’s latest offering: YES. It’s a Movie in this double feature premiere on Friday October 7 at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson; doors open at 7:30 and the show starts at 8 p.m.

In a winter defined by feast or famine, shattered snowfall records, and for many, a season that simply would not end. Twel2ve follows the Absinthe crew having a blast and redefining the limits of what is possible in the Kootenay, Purcell, Selkirk, Monashee, Pacific Coast, Cascade, Wasatch, Uinta, Cache, Gros Ventre, Strandafjellet and Kaçkar mountain ranges.

Tickets are $15 at Tribute, Ripping Giraffe, Valhalla Pure Outfitters, online and at the door. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold will support Protect Our Winters and the Kootenay Carshare Co-operative, an environmental alternative to private car ownership, in their efforts to reduce automobile dependence and keep our communities green.
