Currently watching:

 

Claim - MP and this segment

Light the Wick - TGR

 

Love  the opening of Hand Cut - Sweetgrass

post #33 of 55

The recent TGR ones really get me stoked pre-season, but they seem to be turning towards straightlining spinewalls in Alaska more than anything else.

Warren Miller films where Warren was still the commentator

Steep is a must watch! 

GNAR is just hilarious (and free to watch online)

Unicorn Sashimi is a short shown at the Banff Mountain Film Festival this year, it has some of the deepest powder I have seen. It's posted on youtube.

And a couple more votes for All.I.Can and Hot Dog

Another vote for it - excellent - highly recommended!  icon14.gif

Fantastic. Just saw it. Very well made. Really a story about Seth Morrison and how he got into ski movies, what it takes, how it is etc, pieced around his skiing in Chamonix for the first time with guide Nate Wallace. Lot's of others in it, esp. JP Auclair.

Belongs in trio with Edge of Never and Steep.

If you have an interest in Chamonix, this is a must see.

I wouldn't normally recommend a snowboarding film but The Art of Flight is on Netflix instant.  Awesome film, the part where he rides the tiny couloir in Patagonia is burned into my mind.  +1 for All.I.Can and anything else by Sherpa's Cinema.

It's on there.  I watched it last night on amazon prime along with "Attack of La Nina" which kept me entertained while I was BBQing dinner.

A couple of the Sweetgrass movies and some others are up on Prime now too I've noticed.

Excellent.

Yeah, I see them all now from hitting that link. Love it. Wife gave me her amazon prime password...now I can watch these movies repeatedly until next December.
Happy but sad.

I can't believe no one has mentioned that cinematic masterpiece, "Frozen."  nonono2.gif 

I mean I was cowered under my couch in the fetal position with my eyes squeezed shut and sucking my thumb with fear when the wolves were circling below the trapped trio in the chair!  

The horror, the horror.......

 

Aside from that, I think "Steep" is the best ski movie.

I like how the fixed grip chair fell off the haul rope for absolutely no reason, but it was ok because fixed grip chairs also have a 50' long steel cable wrapped up inside the grip.

Are you really trying to tell me that a 24 year old ski movie with people on straight ski's is relevant today?

Great skiing is great skiing. If anything, doing it on obsolete gear is more impressive.

 

One of my favorite Warren Miller films is Steep & Deep, circa 1985. Good skiing holds up.

Thank you. Thank you. Steep & deep was also a good one.
The post is not only limited to modern ski films is it?
I guess the older flicks are only relevant to skiers who were skiing during that era and can relate.
I can see how a younger person would not be interested in watching Plake and Schmit and Hatrup ski off of cliffs and down coulors on straight skis in neon ski clothes. But during that time period, the blend of music and ski footage were excellent. These were "The Guys" that changed skiing forever.
I have not watched any recent ski movies so I can't comment on any good recent ones., though I am sure there are plenty. I have seen "Steep" that was pretty good.wink.gif

Amazon Prime now has "Signatures" by Sweetgrass. I think it's all in Japan.

I like it better than Solitatire. Didn't like that much.
