‘Let’s Go!’ ski film Oct. 23
The film “Let’s Go!” introduces viewers to the Telemark Skier Crew, a high-octane group of freeheel skiers in search of the perfect turn. The group is comprised of filmmakers, photographers and writers who have collaborated on all aspects of this film to bring it to life. They even serve as the ski talent in the film. The movie blends appearances from the Crew, a first-of-its-kind athlete/content creation team, which includes the likes of JT Robinson and Kjell Ellefson, along with performances by innovative freeheelers like Kate Hourihan and Tony Gill. Filmmaker Josh Madsen and telemark skier Andreas Sjöbeck, the first telemark skier to land a double cork 1080, will be at the showing. Watch the official movie trailer at https://vimeo.com/47921811.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
