UW’s Outdoor Program, Campus Recreation to Screen ‘Abandoned!’ Sept. 25

September 22, 2020

The University of Wyoming’s Outdoor Program and Campus Recreation will virtually screen the free film “Abandoned!” Friday, Sept. 25, from 6-6:25 p.m.

A question-and-answer session with the filmmakers will follow the film screening. To register, visit the Outdoor Program’s registration page at www.uwyo.edu/rec/outdoor-program/events.html.

“Abandoned!” focuses on a crew of backcountry skiers who set out to explore Colorado’s lost ski areas in hopes of finding adventure amongst the ruins. They illustrate what skiing used to be like before megaresorts and climate change wreaked havoc on independently owned ski areas.

Through interviews with former owners, ski patrol personnel and historians, The Road West Traveled, producers of the film, uncover what it is like to be a skier in Colorado's backcountry and what it means to go from lost to found.

The Road West Traveled is based in Boulder, Colo.

For more information, call Garrett Genereux, Outdoor Program coordinator, at (307) 766-6488 or email Garrett.Genereux@uwyo.edu.
