2016 Ski Movie Trailers - Stoke!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I did a search and didn't find a Ski Movie Trailer thread.  If there is one, then I'll happily merge this one. 

 

First and foremost, I have to give you a Public Service Announcement

 We can't use the "P" word when discussing the movies that excited us, or the stoke.  This is not the choice of EpicSki.  

Google has contacted us several times over the past year, requesting that we remove "P*RN" from our site in order to remain in good standing and not be inserted into "child safety lock" searches.  

That being said, please do not refer to this as "Ski P*RN" or use some sort of anagram that will not be found offensive in Google searches. 

 

I know, I know...:rolleyes

 

That being said - I'm seeing movie trailers and its time to amp up the stoke!!!

 

Here is Warren Miller - Chasing Shadows

 

TGR Paradise Waits

 

Matchstick Productions

FADE TO WINTER

I saw paradise waits and while it was a fun one I didn't leave feeling like it was super duper.  Almost Ablaze was better.

I'll probably go to the Warren Miller film too, since a friend wants to do it and I'm always game for that kind of thing.  not crazy about the glitz and silly factor in WM films.

saw  Warren Millers chasing shadows in SLC over the weekend. Free Lift tickets always makes it worth your while. ( solitude and powder mt ) .

 

definitely an entertaining film- highlights included  -a great segment with Eric Pollard and Chris Bentchetler doing their thing  in the steep and deep of switz, japan and italy.  K2 girls on a trip to Valdez AK , man those women would put me to shame. haha ............and a Monopolozza part filming the Monoskiers gathering at Jackson hole. a few of them actually braved Colberts Coular ( crazy)

 

halfway through the movie there was an intermission with alot of give aways , shame i didnt win that trip to Chille!

I've been boycotting WM films ever since they sued the real Warren Miller...that said, the segment on Monopalooza sounds kinda cool. I attended one of their get-togethers at Alpine Meadows several years ago and the mono crew was nice enough to let me get on one of their boards and give it a try. 

 

There's a nice homage to the real Warren Miller and his vintage '70s films at the conclusion of Small World, the latest Level 1 film, fwiw.

I guess we are in the anti-stoke portion of this thread.

Wasn't the company that WME sued, Level1?  I think we have a thread about it somewhere.   Edit:  Link to old thread. http://www.epicski.com/t/86144/warren-miller-entertainment-sues-level-1-productions-for-warrens-appearance-in-refresh-ski-film

I talked to a few of the folks who've helped put on the WME shows in the area the past few years and its getting too expensive to find a venus and make it happen.

The venue thing seems strange. Though I don't know what the venues around here charge. People use the OVL hall at Squaw and I've seen 2 ski films this year at the Art Haus in Tahoe City. I know films have been shown at Squaw Creek and Northstar and Alpine Meadows in the past, but again, have no idea what those places charge to use the logde or a conference room. 

 

While not technically a ski film, Jumbo Wild is a film about an area in Canada that people do ski in and is being threatened by encrouching development. Saw it last night and it's solid.

Yes WWE sued Level 1 and won. The film in question was entitled Eye Trip. You can still purchase it from Level 1 (and it's on sale for $9.95)

I highly recommend JUMBO WILD.

While not technically a ski / snow sports film, it is about an area in Canada that people do engage in snow sports activities (hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, etc). It's more of an environmentally slanted documentary about the current opposition to a proposed ski resort in the area, looking at the pros and cons and determining what wilderness really is (is it sacred, for example)?

This movie looks amazing in that it sheds light on an area of the world most people do not associate with skiing:

Another potential gem, this flick showcasing late season (i.e. spring) skiing in Scotland.

and Tahoe-based pro Cody Townsend took a page from Jeremy Jones' cinematic playbook and released his own film where he eschews the use of helicopters in favor of sledding into a remote area of AK and then earning his turns the old-fashioned way (by hiking for 'em).

 

Saw this at the world premiere in Tahoe City several weeks ago and it's totally worth seeing, especially for its take on pro skiers questioning their profession and coming to grips with the point of it all (i.e. it gets a little philosophical and  personal, two things that are generally not key points in "ski porn"). Refreshing in that not only does it supply the "wow" factor of some amazing ski footage, but it also delves into the lives of the skiers featured in the film.

This one is from Russia. "Second Coming" looks very dramatic.

Speaking of Russia, Ingrid Backstrom is in an upcoming flick entitled The Great Siberian Traverse. Haven't been able to find trailers for it, but there's an article in Powder Magazine about it and some teasers clips floating around online.
