Lake Tahoe-based company Local Freshies, in association with 4Frnt Skis, will host the second in a two-stop movie premiere of “Here and Now” and “Tahoe: The Daily Routine” this weekend in Incline Village.

The first premiere took place in November in South Lake Tahoe. This Friday, Dec. 16, the films will be shown at Diamond Peak. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., and the films start at 6:30 p.m., with a $5 cover charge.

This event is also the winter season passholder appreciation event, and Diamond Peak 2016-17 season passholders will receive free entry and appetizers.

The events will also feature a raffle, with items provided by 4Frnt Skis, Basecamp Hotel, Diamond Peak, Alibi Ale Works, Sierra at Tahoe, Homewood, Nature’s Bakery, Plus Skateboards, Rise Designs, Shoreline of Tahoe, Refuge Coffee and TahoeLab.

Below is a short breakdown of both films, as provided by Local Freshies:

Main Feature — Here and Now

The tour will showcase 4Frnt’s 6th movie highlighting that in a world where nearly everyone’s head is buried in a mobile device, our friendships and interactions between human beings are dwindling away.

It’s up to us to change that and interact with each other by living in the HERE and NOW! This film showcases the skiing of Eric Hjorleifson, David Wise, Wiley Miller, Thayne Rich and Cam Riley with friends and their escape to the outdoors.

Bonus Film — Tahoe: The Daily Routine

After four dry winters and negative press from a few of our favorite ski/snowboard magazines, many categorized Lake Tahoe as “dead.”

We at Local Freshies thought it was a perfect opportunity to make a short film highlighting the local businesses that give Lake Tahoe its flavor and show its culture is alive and well!
