I’m leaving for Mount Everest in a few days — the movie that is… I’ve been wanting to see this flick for a while. Missed the premier but now they’re having an encore. Said to have some terrific 8,000 meter mountaineering footage from a variety of sources. Can’t deny the appeal of skiing the highest mountain on the orb, can you? If you’ll never try it, at least watch a movie about it. Wheeler Opera House, Aspen, 7:00 pm, March 1.
