Premiere! 50th Anniversary Documentary “50 Years of Firsts” by Degan Media

The Waterville Valley 50th Anniversary documentary movie will premiere on Saturday, Feb. 11, at 6 p.m., at the Flying Monkey Movie House and Performance Center in Plymouth.


The documentary, “50 Years of Firsts,” is produced by legendary extreme skier and winter sports broadcast producer, Dan Egan.  The movie recaps Waterville Valley’s legendary past and unites its many milestones and impacts upon the snowsports industry.

“50 Years of Firsts” is a narrative celebrating all the resort’s great achievements and features video clips from the Waterville Valley archives, as well as some footage never seen by the public. The story is told through the eyes of the many characters that helped shape one of the true family resorts in New England — Wayne Wong, Nick Preston, Suzi Preston, Mike Bettera, and Bill Enos to name a few.  Along with an encompassing historical overview, the movie captures the beauty of Waterville Valley Resort and looks forward to the expansion of the new Green Peak and beyond.

There will also be an exhibition of old photos, an interactive selfie station, and commemorative 50th Anniversary books will be presented by author and graphic designer, Will Zimicki, and will be available for purchase. This event is supported by 603 Brewery Waterville Valley Wheat.
