Teton Gravity Research and Indy Pass bring you a short film celebrating the independent spirit of the Midwest ski and snowboard community. Those who ride the Midwest will tell you – they don’t need endless storm cycles, 4,000 feet of vert or fancy base areas to have fun. A few rope tows and rails, a set of slalom gates to bash, reliable snowmaking and a sense of adventure is all it takes.
The ski industry could learn a few tricks from these tried and true Midwest ski areas: Family-first means affordable passes, after-school programs, volunteer-led race clubs, and most importantly, a sense of camaraderie. Showcasing the resilient and ragtag crews of a few truly grassroots ski areas, In Pursuit of Soul 2: Midwest Independence takes us to Buck Hill, Caberfae Peaks, Granite Peak, Little Switzerland, Lutsen Mountains, Nordic Mountain, The Rock Snowpark, and Tyrol Basin.
You can now feel the love of skiing and riding in the Midwest right at home. Our film is now available—jump in to come on a road trip to some of the greatest small ski resorts in the Midwest.
