With the last couple of weeks having brought the first snow to some of North America’s ski resorts, skiing has all of a sudden moved to the front of my mind. The most exciting thing about September, from a skiers point of view, is that coupled with this fresh snow, there is a barrage of ski movies that are released from the worlds top ski movie producers. Seeing as I have spent a large amount of time watching these trailers over and over and over, I thought that I would break them down for you, and point out which movies will be the ones to look out for.
Be sure to switch to HD before viewing the trailers!
And the list, not in any particular order...:
Light the Wick, TGR: If you are looking to watch some innovative lines with some of the worlds largest stars, this movie should be on your list. The crevasse gap at around 1:40 is a definite highlight.
Revolver, PBP: This movie really seems to focus on the evolution of skiing. Again with some of the industries biggest stars, this will be a must see. I am most looking forward to seeing the whole night skiing segment, yes that's right... where they have headlamps on and are skiing at night.
The Way I see it, MSP: MSP always puts on a great movie, and something tells me that this one isn't about to disappoint. I don't even know where to begin with the highlights of this trailer... Big mountain ripping, crazy airs, and some humour thrown in as well.
Wintervention, WME: CHINESE DOWNHILL! Yes, that is right... the bedlam of watching a large number of skiers and snowboarders ripping down the same run, all with the goal of getting to the bottom first. And of course, CMH is featured with some great skiing out at the Gothics.
9191, Veeco Productions: From what I have heard, this is the most anticipated snowboard movie of the year. Nice floaty airs, deep pow, and big mountains.
Well, those are my top five movies that I am most looking forward to seeing this fall. Did I miss any that you think should be on the list? Did you make your own movie last year? Feel free to share in the comments section or on our Facebook page!
