Montana: Here’s Looking at You

This summer, Montana has been showing off in a big way. With her big blue sky and wide-open spaces, it’s no wonder. Let’s face it—she’s kind of the perfect package. She’s gorgeous, cool and unpretentious, with an enthralling history that leaves you intrigued and wanting to learn more. And if you find yourself falling in love with Montana more than ever, I’ll tell you one thing: you’re in good company.

One way to keep an eye on Big Sky Country is through webcams. Numerous wecams are located throughout the state, with each offering an up-to-date view of what’s happening at that very moment.

Here are some of my personal favorites…

Warren Miller’s Flow State Hits Missoula: Tyler Ceccanti Shreds Whitefish

It’s happening, people.

One of the greatest entertainment companies of all time will be showing their latest creation “Flow State” at the Wilma Theatre in downtown Missoula THIS Friday, December 7 at 8 p.m.

And as if that’s not enough, Tyler Ceccanti will be attending the premiere. Now, this messy-haired girl knows that many of you have probably not heard of Tyler. And that’s okay, because if you haven’t yet, you’ll be hearing a lot about him in the coming years.

An up-and-comer in the professional skiing world, Tyler has a featured segment from Japan in this year’s movie. And it’s awesome.

Side note: Even if you’re not into skiing, shredding and tricks, you’ll want to come to the movie just to meet Tyler. In my experience, he is best described in one word: rad. In addition, he is adorable. The kind of adorable that is sweet, cute, personable and hardcore—all rolled up into one.

Hello, Tyler Ceccanti.

Prior to the movie’s premiere and as part of Missoula’s First Friday festivities, MSO Hub is hosting a winter photography showcase and autograph signing to kick off the weekend’s festivities, with work on display from Taylar Robbins, Mark Mesenko and Craig Moore. Tyler will also be on hand to talk skiing from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Following the festivities at the Hub, the Wilma Theatre will open its doors for the movie at 7 p.m., with the first 400 attendees receiving 2-for-1 passes to Lookout Pass Ski & Recreation Area. Plus, movie goers will get to visit with representatives from local area ski resorts (including Discovery Ski Area, Lost Trail Powder Mountain and Whitefish Mountain Resort). Attendees will also be entered to win lift tickets, ski & stay packages and gear from ski industry manufacturers.

Tickets for the film are available at The Trail Head and Rockin’ Rudy’s and are $12 in advance and $15 at the door, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the West Central Montana Avalanche Foundation.

And for those of you haven’t heard, Whitefish Mountain Resort is opening for the season on Saturday! To help kick off the resort’s opening, Tyler will be shredding down the mountain we all love so much on December 8 – 9.  As part of his time there, all skiers are invited to meet Tyler at the Summit House on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. for poster signings and photo opportunities.

Hope to see you at the premiere and on the slopes this weekend!
