Couple of good clips: Coombs, Plake, Morrison

post #2 of 11

Over the years I've listened to Plake's motto (in that clip) again and again and again and again.  Damned if I can work out what he says; "you can't <something> unless you're involved".

 

Anybody have a clue?  Bit of help here ...

No, seriously - "evolve".

 

Cheers, mate!  ;-)

Does anyone know if these clips are from a particular Warren Miller film? If so, which one?

I know that the last one is in Verbier in Swiss Alps. I've skied down that same run in the final clip where Glen is cruising down the bumps - it's quite a decent pitch on that (especially on the top though).

Based on Plake's skis I'm guessing the footage is from late 90's?

The clip is from either Cold Fusion or Storm (with my money being on Cold Fusion) although the original music has been replaced.

Good call, Sinbad7! It was indeed Cold Fusion. It's on Netflix on demand, and I watched it tonight. The Coombs-Plake-Morrison segment starts about 4 minutes in and runs about 7 1/2 minutes. And they did change some (if not all of the music). The James Gang's "Funk 49" played behind Plake's skiing. Nice match. Of course that would go well with just about anything!  ;-)

The music is fantastic all the way through Cold Fusion, with the introductory segment a standout.  I jotted down some tracks while watching the closing credits and bought some albums years ago.  The Zebrahead stuff is my sort of music.

The original clips I embedded in post #1 no longer exist, but here's one of the same material. Worth seeing again, and again, and again... wink.gif
