Pros: Gets right to the point in the simplest, clearest way.
Cons: You will not learn any fancy words or complex explanations.
“ Watched this movie while skiing with a group of close friends and new friends at a house in SLC. On the spot, we all resolved to go to JH the following season and we did. Who doesn't wish they made the choices that Howie and Benny made? The best ski move EVER. ” --bjohansson
“At the Epicski Gathering 2010, we were treated to a private screening of the Edge of Never with Bill Kerig (SkiWrite). The first thing that you realize, is that Bill is firs and foremost a passionate expert skier. Some in our gathering enjoyed a few runs and a hike out Baldy Shoulder and a drop into some fresh powder. Kerig is the real deal. His life experiences, and the respect he has...” --Cirquerider
“ I have now gone entirely through the first DVD in this series Basic Balance. The 6 DVDs move to very advanced skills, but I have so far only worked on the basics (hence the review title.) I've been skiing for over 20 years, so it ain't what you think of as basic. The progression of drills on this DVD start with fore/aft balance, then move to lateral balance. If...” --SkiMangoJazz
“ This video is the real deal and could be the best $30 you ever spend learning to improve your skiing. The video lessons on the DVD are great, simple, concise and to the point. Pick the lesson/area you want to improve on, watch it 5 or 10 times and go out and practice. Stand in front of the video screen and try the moves, train your muscles to make the moves....” --mgrezmer
“ I enjoyed watching this documentary thoroughly. I never realized how much of an impact the 10th Mountain Division had on our skiing today, nor had I even heard of the division. It was very nice to have the interviews with members of the unit before they passed away, they are an integral part of skiing history. Parts of the documentary seem to be a little too drawn out with repeating...” --tylrwnzl
“ All i could say after seeing All I Can was WOW. Some of the camera work is epic, the best i have seen! I personally liked the Canadian Rockies segment best, but its so hard to define which is the best part of the film. I can't even describe how great this movie is. Incredible skiing from Greenland to Morroco. From Volcanos to the streets of Trail B.C. And after all of the amazing skiing and...” --poNTOonMcConks
“ I watched this flick available for streaming through Netflix. It truly lives up to its name of Off the Grid. The areas they take you too are some of the most remote and best skiing on the planet. From the Himalayas in eastern India to the back country of British Columbia. The dubbing of select quotes from Warren Miller is nicely done as well. ” --tylrwnzl
“ This movie is original on many levels. It challenges the common notion of "extreme skiing" as something done in big mountain locations accessible by helicopter. These guys, film students at Montana State in Bozeman and their many friends, take the same premises of the contemporary ski movie -- big air, amazing acrobatics, creative lines, big-time athleticism -- and set them in the urban...” --nolo
“I'm a big fan of the Sports Diamond, Weems Westfeldt's model of how skiers can take charge of their growth curve and enjoyment of skiing. This dvd explains the concepts with great imagery and humor. The ideas are important and transferable to all aspects of life; they are presented in an entertaining accessible way, supported with images of exciting, inspirational skiing. Brilliant!” --nolo
“ I need to start by saying that I fully <heart> backcountry skiing. And Powderwhore films are about backcountry skiing. This movie is 100% lift/helicopter/snowcat/snowmachine free - all turns are earned by hiking/skinning (well, and some horses and boats). And it seems to me that influences the skiing and choice of lines. There is plenty of hucking and solid...” --Bob Lee
