Now in its 3rd year, the Wasatch Mountain Film Festival highlights documentary films featuring inspiring stories about adventure, cultural and environmental topics. This year, Tim Roberts film about George Jedenoff, the delightful 99 year old skier, kicks off the festival.

If you love skiing and want an uplift, this is the film to see. Tim captures George's exuberance for life and the rewards of continuing to ski and remain active as you grow older.

Every year when George comes to ski at Alta and Snowbird, Tim has produced a video of him starting when George was 95 years old. Here are links to four of the five videos.
