The latest 2 year project from Sherpas Cinema is coming to Panda Poles' hometown of Pocatello, Idaho. Presented by Panda Poles, Barrie's Ski & Sports, and Portneuf Valley Brewing, "Into The Mind" brings with to the small town of Pocatello a fresh perspective on mountain culture--a town which has only ever had Warren Miller on the big screen. Featuring Panda athletes Mark Abma, Julian Carr, and Panda High Council Member Angel Collinson (who has helped manufacture Panda Poles), this film travels the world on an cinematographic exploration of the human mind and how confronting deadly situations can blur the edges of reality and a dream state... Panda Poles is honored to share with the community of Pocatello--the skier's of Pebble Creek ("The Rock")--in this cultural event at Portneuf Valley Brewing (615 S. 1st Ave), on Saturday, November 9, 2013, with doors opening at 4PM for the first show and 6PM for the second screening. This is an all ages event with raffle prizes including gear from Barrie's Ski & Sports, and a pair of Panda Poles given away at both screenings.

perseverance demanded on the quest for achievement. These are not solely physical feats, they are
From the creators of the award winning film “All.I.Can”, Sherpas Cinema is proud to present their newest
feature film, Into The Mind. With stunning cinematography and groundbreaking storytelling techniques, the
Sherpas blur the lines between dream state and reality, and immerse you into the mind of a common skier
as he attempts to climb and ski the ultimate mountain. Innovative athlete segments are actually a glimpse
into his dreamscape, each one harboring messages that help inform our hero’s current, real-life choices.
As you experience the majesty of Alaska, Bolivia, the Himalaya and beyond, Into the Mind paints a
philosophical portrait of human kind. How do we balance risk versus reward? Why are we inspired to rise
to the challenges in our lives and what do we learn on this journey to attain them?
