Comments by Jens Heig/

Dates are set for The Meeting 2014, Aspen/Snowmass’ annual weekend to celebrate snowsports film and culture, returning to downtown Aspen, October 2 – 4, 2014.

The 10th annual installment of The Meeting will deliver a packed schedule of the top ski and snowboard films for the 2014-2015 season as well as an industry gathering featuring conferences, forums and activities designed to stimulate discussion on topics most relevant to our sport’s industries.

The Meeting has become one of the premiere snowsports gatherings, giving athletes, industry professionals and snow enthusiasts the chance to network and learn, be entertained and get excited for the upcoming season. The industry conference portion of the weekend pulls in some of the leading minds both from inside and outside the snowsports industry. Previous speakers include Paul Crandell, Steven Kotler, C.J. Olivares and Brooke Wentz. In addition to films, activities and the conference there will also be two nights of concerts at the Belly Up and a fashion show.
The weekend will kick off on Thursday, October 2 with the NEPSA Video Awards, an annual snowsports/lifestyle video competition featuring short films that offer athletes and filmmakers from the region an opportunity to showcase their talents and compete for their piece of the $3,500 purse.

Each submission should have one of these three themes: Huck Dynasty; Sick Day; or Aspen Problems. Competitors are encouraged to sign up now and choose a theme. Full rules and more information can be found at www.aspensnowmass.com/themeeting.

The Meeting presented by GoPro is sponsored by Red Bull, Helly Hansen, Bud Light, Target, HEAD, Smith Optics and Audi.
