I CAN SKI FOREVER 4

Beginning in 2014, the "I Can Ski Forever" theatrical trilogy has been a hugely popular cultural event in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The shows parody modern ski town culture, peeling back the veil and showcasing the heart of what makes the skiing and snowboarding culture so great! And not so great! We sold over 2,500 tickets collectively, making it one of the most successful independently-produced original productions in Jackson Hole history.

What's the Kickstarter about?

I am the creator, actor, writer and director behind those shows and I am constantly asked by locals (at least once a month) whether we'll perform them again for audiences to enjoy. 

Well, you asked for it... 

If our Kickstarter is funded, "I Can Ski Forever 4" (ICS4) will be gracing the Pink Garter Theatre stage in Jackson Wyoming in May 2019! The show will feature brand new material with some nostalgic favorites. We'll follow both original characters as well as old favorites like the cougars Theresa, Trish and Tammy, pro snowboarder Jonah Mills, and the continuous whirlpool of bros named Ben. 

$15,000 will pay for the cost of renting the Pink Garter Theatre stage for six performances, as well as go towards rewards, marketing, talent and venue personnel.

What about the rewards?

The cover illustration for "I Can Ski Forever: The Book" by local artist Katy Ann Fox

Esteemed local artist Katy Ann Fox has painted this exceptional watercolor that perfectly captures the spirit of Jackson Hole, and select reward backers will be able to take home an exclusive numbered and signed print of this beautiful illustration. 

The artwork will be featured as the cover of "I Can Ski Forever: The Book" which will cement the legacy of these shows in Jackson Hole history. The book will compile the scripts from the past three shows ("I Can Ski Forever" 2014, "I 2 Can Ski Forever" 2015, and "I Can Ski Forever: The Musical" 2017), so you can recreate your favorite scenes from the shows. The book will also include essays, illustrations and never-before-seen bonus scenes like "New Raft Guide" lifting the veil on the cutthroat world of whitewater guiding and "I Woke Up Like This", which dives into the illustrious world of Jackson Hole bar fashion. 

Additional rewards include VIP seating, a Cougar Prowess package, and the opportunity to get your name and Jackson Hole story permanently printed in the "I Can Ski Forever" book. 

We have a history of selling out this show (and bumming out a lot of last-minute hopefuls) so please consider buying your tickets NOW through this Kickstarter. It would be incredible to sell out these shows months in advance! 

Thank you for supporting local ambitious theatre, and let's get this show off the ground!

Risks and challenges

As I do not produce this show through a non-profit or theatre company, costs are at face-value. This allows us the freedom to do and say whatever we want. Theatre space in town is pretty expensive, so a majority of our funding goes towards venue and personnel costs.

By engaging our loyal community, I hope to break the last-minute Jackson syndrome and get people on board early. It's how we successfully funded the third installment, and I hope to do the same for the fourth.

Self-publishing costs are high, but if we raise the money early enough, we'll be able to fund both the show and the book. Any additional book sales will go towards a second-printing, and deluxe editions in the future.
