Best Ski Movie (?) - Page 2

post #31 of 50
Anyone reading this in the UK may like to set their VCR. Downhill Racer is showing on BBC2 this Thursday 11.20pm - 1.00am.

I don't think I could pick a favorite between em, but if I did, I'd have to say Out Cold, it just reminds me of my Ski School a little too much.

Out Cold
Ski School
Hot Dog
Better Off Dead
Ski Patrol
Aspen Extreme (who has never wanted to do what they do)

Extreme Ops was pretty bad. As far as ski-porn goes, I like the TGR films a lot, but Matchstick puts out some top quality movies too.
I really liked The Seth Morrison Chronicles and The Prophecy - they actually kinda had a plot and followed it.

HOT DOG, or thinking back.... Maltese Flamingo.

My vote would be Aspen Extreme only because it shows my local hill, Mt. Brighton in Mich. (though I only skied there twice last yr)

My favorite ski porn movie is Blizzard of Aaaahhs. You can even argue that it has a plot, after a fashion.

Of the feature films, Hot Dog is my #1. It had all the classic cliches. Any ski movie that doesn't feature a playmate of the year can't be a serious contender.

Snow Job was awful other than the one skiing sequence with Killy skiing down that glacier / avalanche debris field in slow-motion. In Downhill Racer, the character Redford plays is so unlikable that it spoils the movie.

Any word on how much action in the new Mountain series?

I've not seen Snow Job, but just found this clip on youtube. Guessing it's his practice run for what's described above.

1) Ski School

2) Better off Dead

3) Hot Dog

4) Aspen Extreme

 

In that order... I make this movies curriculum for any budding ski instructor.

You have to go with MSP's "Claim - The Greatest Ski Movie...Ever".  If it's in the title, then it has to be the greatest!

 

Sean Petit's into segment was one of the best edits made.

Downhill Racer hands down. There was actually a plot, movie stars and speed.  For powder skiing, look at this old (partial) documentary about 1:40 in (I assume a documentary counts for movies).  I still can't stop watching old documentaries and films of Killy, Stenmark, Thoeni, and Engen. The free skiing balance of Killy and Engen is amazing.  The new ski movies are fun for sure, but the poetry of motion is replaced by the extreme.

Unfortnately, no uncovered boobs were featured in Ski Patrol.  However, you do get good skiing, nice stunts/aerials, rocket skis, George Lopez, a runaway hotdog, and so much more.

 

 

 

Anyhow, Hot Tub Time Machine should definitely be added to the list.

SNOW JOB!!!  Holy cow, I'd totally forgotten about that classic.  I saw that in a theater when it was released.  It was cheesy.... but a good Euro cheese.

 

An equally cheesy ski movie of the same vintage is The Ultimate Thrill, with Euro-MILF Britt Ekland.

If Dumb & Dumber is on here as a ski flick, Hot Tub Time Machine should definitely be on it as well!
