5Point Film Festival opened its 7th festival last night here in Carbondale, Colorado and proved that they offer a lot more than just movies. The festivities kicked off with Van Life Rally, celebrating those adventurers that live on the road. “Recreational vehicles” lined the street and anyone who didn’t get a touch of van envy, probably didn’t have much of a pulse either. With tricked out $100k Sprinter vans to a recommissioned school bus with couch lounging on the roof, the air was filled with that desire to hit the road, and seek adventure.
Lou’s take? “This is the best car show I’ve ever been to – I hope they do this every year!”
An evening of movies followed — with stories that made the desire for adventure grow, even if it meant fishing a quiet stream or hiking the hills in your hometown. 5Point hit it out of the park again and the weekend ahead will only get better. Come join us for movies and special, special events.
We’re taking the day “off” for a ski this morning then festival going on into the evening. We’ll post up more van photos eventually. At the moment, Lou is looking for his 100% black outfit. But wait, this is 5Point, we don’t have to dress as PIBs to fit in. Patagonia works better.
Make the most of it — participate! List of special events here.
While most of the WildSnow backcountry skiing blog posts are best attributed to a single author, some work well as done by the group.
