Chuck.  I still have the rougher version you sent me.  Brought it to a small get together with three other families, 3 dads, an aunt/friend, and five 9-17 year old kids last month.  They really enjoyed it but agreed that it needed cleaning up for better viewing on a large HD screen format.. although the original has plenty of charm as is. 

 

What is the updated timeline for the latest version?  Most definitely interested in buying a copy.  I doubt there will be any screenings of it in our flat and snowless area unless it goes mainstream big time.

 

So happy to see you drop in with an update.  I told the folks that you had been working on the project but wasn't sure where you were at.  Cheers!

The post to which you replied had an incorrect password for the 6 min demo. The correct one is OK2WatchTOWE. I hope you can take the time to look at it. It is way beyond what I sent out to selected viewers a few years ago. We are looking for financing to shoot new interviews with the principal skiers in WE. Enjoy!

I fixed the password in the reply quote ("ok" changed to caps there)  ;)  We're certainly looking forward to WE V2016 or 2017Thumbs Up

Super D, Robert Young appears at 38s into this film, and a few other times off of the ramp.

The best documentary has been done by Brian Gilmore. It is narrated by some of the top "Legends" of the sport. It covers the birth and boom of freestyle skiing and the changes it went through. It really captures the essence of who we were and what we did. I can't recommend it highly enough.

I was there.  Spent some quality time with some amazing people, not the least of which was Snoqueen herself.

I wasn't there so this is just a guess. Jake Jakesprear (spelling may be incorrect) at Waterville Valley, ME in 1972, 73, or possibly 74.

Either the start of a front layout, before tucking to come around, or near the end of a back layout. My guess would be the front ayout.

Maybe some old Warren Miller movies? Glen Plake is kinda like a hotdogger/prog crossover skier! :)

Philpug and I were invited to cover the event by the US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame. 

There were several reports on the events by us and the team we had helping cover the events, including, but not exclusive to 

Hall of fame members and new inductees.
