Shane McConkeys  is chilling.

Phil's got the right idea, but I think I prefer the tribute to Shane in "In Deep."  Those front flips he throws, like the one above Donner, or off of High Lift, are incredible.  And the end of the segment, with him dropping away, is a fitting end.

I know you are looking for modern Coombs-style segments, but I'll go old school.  I've posted this before...his skiing starts at about 1:40 into the film.  Not bad for an old man.  The better documentary from 3 or 4 decades earlier is found here:

I like the section of all Scot Schmidt in License to Thrill.  Some of the best skiing I've ever seen.

I'll second McConkey in Claim. "Just ski down there and jump off somethin' for crying out loud!" is a great way to have more fun. My top video recently is this, from a little indie outfit in Revelstoke

 

 

Check out the 'what were you thinking?' drop at 3:23!

 

Also honourable mention for GNAR, especially the naked skiing, for reminding me not to take life so seriously.

I like certain skiers and all their stuff is awesome, and the cameramen are crazy good. Of course Shane is the original. Can you picture those guys sitting around dreaming this stuff up? What a crack up!

but two other scenes stick. One is Roner skiing that narrow, cliffed out couloir in Europe somewhere that ends in a parachute jump. You can hear his breathing at the top picked up by the POV camera, which makes his tension and excitement for the moment so vivid. Second one is Micah Black and Jeremy Nobis skiing a really long couloir together in Italy I believe. The shot is un-spectacular, but the place they are skiing, their camaraderie, their skills, is what does it. Those may both be in Tangerine Dream, as they are TGR skiers.

thx for the above clips.

An awesome segment I just saw was in Sherpas Cinemas' new "All.I.Can" movie... where JP Auclair skis through the urban streets of Trail, BC.  Unfortunately, I can't find a video link for it... here's the full trailer + a review though:  http://www.powderguide.com/home.php?ID_Sub=2805&display=1574

I was just going to post this exact same thing.  That segment was extremely cool and a hundred times more entertaining than the normal jib / rail stuff.  Unlike anything I've ever seen before.

I also loved the outtakes of filming that urban scene.  He runs into a tree.  Makes him look human, which the real scene certainly did not.  Incredible.

 

There's some beautiful cinematography in All.I.Can.  I thought it could've been edited a bit better, though.

A patagoinia film on ski channel right now called handcut. I like the opening scene with the ray lomantagne song.

I know it's a latter day Warren Miller movie (which gets a lot of hate around here), but I love the Doug Coombs segment at Chamonix from Journey. Lotta great skiing in it and an awesome rappel out of the Agui du Midi that never fails to make my heart race and palms sweat. Journey actually has a great series of segments in it, Portillo -> Tahoe (w/Glenn Plake) -> Aspen -> Chamonix. One of my go to's on my dvr when I want to stoke the fire a bit the night before hitting the slopes.
