JACKSON HOLE, WYO \u2013 Even as the Jackson community struggles with how to retain the charm of the state\u2019s first ski area nestled in the middle of town while acknowledging that current owners and investors of the hill have expressed a desire to update the resort to modern-day standards, along comes a story from a legendary Tahoe filmmaking duo that will play out on a local stage next week.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance will host a showing of The Movie to Keep Squaw True\u00a0at the Pink Garter Theatre on Wednesday, January 30.\r\n\r\n\u201cJackson isn't the only community working to protect its local ski hill,\u201d said Tisa Djahangiri, Conservation Alliance organizer bringing the movie to Jackson. \u201cWe can learn from other mountain towns who have done the same.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe movie is the epic struggle to keep a famed Tahoe Mountain from turning into a Vegas-style amusement park, and it\u2019s the perfect fit for an outdoor-loving mountain community like Jackson.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe movie was produced by nonprofit Sierra Watch.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe\u2019re big fans of the work of the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance,\u201d says Tom Mooers of Sierra Watch. \u201cAnd we\u2019re looking forward to them hosting this screening.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe film tells the story of the biggest development fight in the Sierra Nevada. Ski conglomerate Alterra Mountain Company threatens to remake North Tahoe with massive development\u2014a series of high-rise condo hotels, a roller coaster, and a 90,000 square-foot indoor waterpark that would be wide as a Walmart and nearly three times as tall.\r\n\r\nThe project would take 25 years to construct and add thousands of car trips to Tahoe\u2019s already crowded roads. But Alterra\u2019s development scheme has run into a mountain of determined opposition, organized as the movement to Keep Squaw True.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nLegendary Tahoe filmmakers Robb and Scott Gaffney have captured the dramatic struggle in The Movie to Keep Squaw True.\r\n\r\n\u201cThis is not a time to keep quiet for mountain communities throughout North America,\u201d says Robb Gaffney. \u201cIt\u2019s a time to show the world the strength and wisdom of these communities.\u201d\r\n\r\n\u201cThere is so much of a story to tell here,\u201d adds his brother, Scott. \u201cAnd I\u2019m proud to be doing it.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe movie has been received by enthusiastic audiences in sold-out shows throughout the Sierra Nevada. Now it\u2019s coming to the Jackson, with a screening on January 30 at the Pink Garter Theatre.\u00a0Additional screenings are scheduled for February 20 in Auburn, California; February 28 in Park City, Utah; March 7 in Davis, CA; and April 4 in Reno, Nevada.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n'The Movie to Keep Squaw True.'
