A beautiful piece of cinematography

This ski vid is the most elegant I have ever seen. 
Not because it records the most extreme and technically demanding terrain. It isn't. Not because the skier is the most confrontive and aggressive. She isn't. And not because a certain death awaits any false move. It doesn't.
If what we normally are treated to in the genre with those qualities is coined "ski porn," I would regard this presentation as "ski-rotica." A sensual exploration of the private moments shared between a splendid skier who posses that unmistakably elegant female touch and virgin terrain that succumbs completely to her caress.
I am almost embarrassed to watch it again.
But I will.

What a beautiful video!

Some really gracious movements make skiing feels almost like meditation...

 

Amazing cinematography, skiing, scenery, and snow!

 

Thanks for sharing Thumbs Up

Beautiful ! Glad someone else in the world isn't always hearing throbbing rock or regg-a-billy when they're skiing

Oh yes!  Beautiful in a grown up sort of way. Great skiing.

 

Thank you.

What really struck me about this film is the sense of intimacy it achieves. It makes me feel like a voyeur, like I am observing what was truly meant to be a private moment between the painter and her canvas. And that I find both tittilating and irresistible.
