It’s a beautifully shot, amply researched, nostalgic look at three “lost” ski areas on Colorado’s Front Range.
Featuring Geneva Basin, Berthoud Pass and Cuchara Mountain Resort, Abandoned includes interviews with those whose passions built these ski areas and whose hearts broke when they closed.
Not just skiing history, the film includes plenty of snowy stoke as backcountry skiers explore what’s left of the developed ski area terrain.
It’s a luminous film that was screened at numerous international film festivals 2018.
