‘Sculpted in Time’ by Sherpas Cinema

Sherpas Cinema is quickly becoming a household name here in the Rockies. Their 2013 feature ‘Into the Mind’ brought us a cinematic marvel that explored what it means to have the courage to risk fatal exposure while embracing the perseverance demanded on the quest for achievement. ‘Into the Mind’ painted a philosophical portrait of human kind while taking the viewer on a cinematic tour of majestic terrain throughout Bolivia, Alaska and the Himalayas. 

This year, Sherpas Cinema has brought their philosophy back home. ‘Sculpted in Time’ comes back to the Rockies and explores not only the roots of the founders of Sherpas Cinema, but also the roots of generations of skiers in these great mountains and the inspiration behind our ski culture. From local legends to professional skiers, resort groomers to backcountry slopes, ‘Sculpted in Time’ presents the viewer with the absolute grandeur of our mountain peaks and demonstrates how their raw nature has reigned supreme for generations.
