> Dear Vermont Skiing Community,
>
>            For years now, my brother Tyler and I have been  
> discussing the idea of shooting a short documentary about small ski  
> hills in the area. We’ve decided to make that dream a reality over  
> the course of the next year. We will film, edit, and promote a short  
> documentary discussing the histories of these places and what makes  
> them unique today. Unfortunately, we do not have all of the gear and  
> software required to make this happen, as well as the funds to  
> promote the final product. So we have decided to open an account on  
> Kickstarter.com to try and raise enough money to produce the quality  
> video that these areas deserve.
>
> If you want see this happen as much as we do, we hope you will visit  
> the site and consider making a donation. If we are going to raise  
> enough money, we need make a big splash, so regardless of whether or  
> not you can swing a donation, please forward this to friends who  
> might be interested in this sort of project, mention it to  
> neighbors, post it to your facebook-- you get the point. The way  
> Kickstarter works is that lots of people pledge money, but it is  
> only taken from their accounts if we reach our fundraising goal of  
> $5,000. This is the bare minimum we have determined to be necessary  
> to rent the gear, purchase the software, and promote the film (film  
> festival entries, etc,).
>
> Please contact us if you have questions or ideas. We are already  
> looking forward to another winter coaching at Cochran’s and are  
> excited to share this project with all of you.
