Powderwhore Productions is calling it quits

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I received a media release from Powderwhore that is sad for me because I've really enjoyed the small venue showings that we've had the opportunity to attend.  The Powderwhore crew put some truly fun stuff together. 

The good news is, they are selling all the DVD's in their inventory $5.00/each.  Go here to seize the deal

 

 

Here is the press release: 

 

THANK YOU
The earth will probably continue to spin, and hopefully light and fluffy snow will still fall in the mountains, but Powdewhore Productions will no longer be producing backcountry ski films. It started as a joke, became an obsession and morphed into an incredible "job". For ten years we have been risking life and limb, hustling the outdoor industry, and working hard on a shoestring budget to tell the stories of those obsessed with sliding on snow and sharing them with friends and the backcountry community.

Our goal with Powderwhore was to capture the freedom of the backcountry and all the diverse and immense possibilities it provides. We quickly realized this was an impossible task. No matter how big the screen we projected upon, it wasn't large enough. The only way to experience it is to do it. Maybe we inspired people to break some trail and follow their powdery dreams into the mountains.

Our hearts and passion led us into the mountains, and into filming, and now those things are leading us safely back out. We are proud of what we were able to ski, film, and accomplish in often inhospitable and dangerous locations and conditions. Unfortunately many, many snowflakes were harmed in the making of our films.

All we can really say is THANK YOU to everyone who supported us along the way. Thank you for coming out to the shows, buying DVDs, getting lost in the images, and most importantly, laughing at us and with us. You will be missed Powderwhore Nation.


What does the future hold?
Jonah is enjoying the warmth of the indoors where he continues to blend humor and creativity in his video-craft for some familiar outdoor friends and their companies.

Noah is still skiing as much as possible and working with Voile as their athlete team captain. noahhowell.com


Dry your tears and relive your favorite Powderwhore memories forever! As a farewell gift, we will be discounting and closing out all DVD's and merchandise on our website. Every dollar you spend will not go to Protect Our Winters, but will directly contribute to our early retirement in Florida fund. Give generously and go fluff yourself!

Wow, has it been ten years already?   Still remember their first show here.

That's a shame. PW consistently produced interesting and unique movies, and, as TC pointed out, they'd play small venues that were off the usual big ski movie track.

Luck to the Howells in the future.

Quite a deal on those DVDs — done.

My favorite Powderwhore segment: Brogressive, an "ad" for an insurance company.

I'll be honest and say that this is the first time I've heard of Powderwhore... I used to watch all the new Warren Miller films back when I was younger, but somewhere along the lines I quite paying attention I guess. With that said the description for Some Thing Else (yurt in the Beartooth Mtns!, etc.) enticed me to order a copy of it.

Powderwhore had some really good stuff, primarily based in Backcountry. 

Here is one thread about the movie from a few years ago, including a trailer. 

I went to that movie and had a ton of fun.

Choose Your Adventure, referenced above, included footage from the Antarctic cruise Liz and I took in November 2011.   Unfortunately that's not listed in the DVD inventory.

Amazon has a pretty good selection of their movies, both on DVD and on Amazon Prime for those who prefer to stream.
