Ryan Mertaugh lives in Jackson Hole Wyoming – an environment that is steeped in mountain culture, where life revolves around having a connection to the outdoors. Ryan has added his own signature to this framework by developing the art of parkour Hula Hooping. Ryan has further developed the act of hula hooping as a form to challenge perceptions of social norms and cause viewers to reevaluate their current reality. Last winter he began a journey to hula hoop on top of several peaks in the Teton Mountain Range.This film documents the remarkable expedition and the surprising discoveries that were made along the way.  9/5 7:25 p.m. – Green Valley Spa;  9/5 9:15 p.m. – Dunford Auditorium
