‘Abandonded’ resorts focus of film set for Northglenn showing

A Colorado documentary that looks at the history of three small but historic Colorado ski areas will get a featured presentation in Northglenn Feb. 8.

The film “Abandoned” will be shown on the 82nd anniversary of Berthoud Pass Ski Area, one the three ski areas featured in the documentary. The ski area, located in Clear Creek and Grand Counties, was closed in 2002 and its lifts were removed in 2003.

The film also looks at the history of Geneva Basin and Cuchara Valley Resort. Geneva Basin, located just south of Guanella Pass in Park County, closed in 1984. Cuchara, located in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, was bought and sold multiple times in the 1990s, finally closing for good in 2004.

The film was released in October 2018 by filmmakers at the Road West Traveled, a trio of Colorado natives made up of Lionello Delpiccolo, Grant Robbins and Sara Beam Robbins.

The film has been an official selection at the Freeride Film Festival in Amsterdam; Backcounty Film Festival; SnowVision Film Festival.

It will be shown at Feb. 8 at Northglenn’s D.L. Parson’s Theatre in the Northglenn Community Center, 11801 Community Center Drive. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program is set to begin at 7 p.m.

Reservations, made by emailing BerthoudEvents@gmail.com, are required because previous performances have sold out. The cost is $5 per person for those pre-registered and $15 at the door if seats are available.

A question and answer session with the filmmakers is scheduled after the Northglenn showing. An additional film trailer about a new project the group is working on is scheduled to be presented as well.
