Enjoy these upcoming programs at the AMC Joe Dodge Lodge in Pinkham Notch, NH….

Saturday, April 5: Fire on the Mountain A film documenting the 10th Mountain Division, America’s only mountain and winter warfare fighting unit. The thrilling story of these amc_winter_webrugged, courageous men in all their glory

Saturday, April 12: Legends of American Skiing- Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Inferno Join film producer Rick Moulton before the showing of Legends of American Skiing. This lecture and film fall on the 75th Anniversary of the 1939 Inferno. The film depicts Toni Matt’s legendary feat of Schussing the Headwall to win the race by more than a minute. The 1939 Inferno can be looked back upon as the last Big Mountain Downhill Race in America and certainly the last in the North East.

Saturday, April 19: Intrepid Descent- This documentary captures the classic backcountry skiing experience of Tuckerman Ravine on Mount Washington and explores the rich history of the ravine, which has been home to triumph and tragedy since the early 1920’s. A present day narrative takes viewers from the daunting hike and climb up the Ravine to the exhilarating descent over the lip, while interviews with experts, meteorologists, and rare historical footage provide a broad and dynamic view of Tuckerman’s. A classic man-versus-nature story, Intrepid Descent pays homage both to the mountain and to the individuals who dare to pursue their passion.

Saturday, April 26: Dr. Quackenbush Skis the Headwall This famous ski comedy, filmed in 1940, follows Dr. Quackenbush to Cranmore, Wildcat and Tuckerman Ravine. Filmed by Sidney Shurcliff in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, this famous comedy classic follows the misadventures of Dr. Erasmus B. Quackenbush from Mt. Cranmore to the Wildcat Race Trail to the heights of Tuckerman Ravine’s legendary Headwall. Historic footage, spectacular skiing, “hill”arious comedy and a vintage musical score make this film great entertainment for the entire family.
