Last year’s film focused on eastern and western ski areas on The Indy Pass, but completely left out the great hills of the Midwest.
To make up for the Midwest’s absence, this year’s film is centered entirely around the family-friendly ski areas that Midwesterners call home. These ski areas are ‘small’ by all stretches of the imagination, but what they lack in size they make up for in their soul.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the next 30 minutes learning about what keeps the friendly folks of the Midwest coming back to their favorite ski areas year after year.
Teton Gravity Research: “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. In Pursuit of Soul 2: Midwest Independence was filmed on location at Buck Hill, Caberfae Peaks, Granite Peak, Little Switzerland, Lutsen Mountains, Nordic Mountain, The Rock Snowpark, and Tyrol Basin.”
