Homewood Presents: “Finding the Line” & “Yugen” Movie Premiere
Homewood Mountain Resort is proud to home the Lake Tahoe premiere for Connections Movement’s Yugen and Birds of a Feather’s Finding the Line. Both featuring a wide variety of skiing and snowboarding talents ranging from Olympic competitors to off-the-grid mountaineers, these films take a traditional documentary a step further by showcasing the underlying story of adventure, progression, and passion.
We’re excited to have Tahoma local Brennan Lagasse, Educator, Writer, Ski Guide and world traveler as the Guest Speaker for our headlining movie Finding the Line. While Brennan is pictured in the movie, his work was mostly behind the scenes as a ski tour guide for Finding the Line’s team as they ventured through some of Alaska’s most demanding terrain. Brennan will be joining us in welcoming this premiere as well as sharing some insight and stories relating to the film.
This showing will take place behind North Lodge next to Homewood Mountain Sports. We will be supplying chairs (complimented by heat lamps), a full service bar and snacks such as pizza and popcorn available for purchase. Accompanying us for the showing will be local brands High Fives Foundation, SOS Outreach, Tahoe Backcountry Women and Sierra Avalanche Center.

Finding the Line is a film about fear, it’s paralyzing grip on humans and how it affects our decision-making.
Olympian and X Games Slopestyle champion Anna Segal and her Freeride World Tour, big mountain skiing sister, Nat Segal, use their skiing to understand fear and how it manifests in the two siblings’ lives.
Throughout their careers as professional skiers, Anna and Nat have both constantly been challenged by fear. Yet, despite being brought up under the same roof, they have learned to deal with it in almost contrasting ways, neither leading them to the success they dreamed of.
A heartfelt journey on the knife’s edge of big mountains throughout Canada and France push them to their physical and emotional limits. The extreme skiing mecca of Alaska pushes them beyond.
The Australian sisters soon realize that the most important lessons lie within each others’ approach. Equipped with greater insight, they negotiate the fine balance between staying in their comfort zone and taking too much risk, learning that sometimes to move forward, you need to understand what is holding you back.
