Local blog promotes skiing as a family sport

A mid-Atlantic father with a passion for skiing has recently launched a new blog that will focus on skiing as a family sport. According to the blog’s editor, SkiWedge.com wants to “assist families to take that next step and get out to the mountain or go a bit larger and head on out on a ski vacation.”

SkiWedge has posted family reviews from Stratton, Tremblant, Beaver Creek, Snowshoe, and Mount Hood Meadows, as well as updates on the start of the mid-Atlantic ski season. SkiWedge can be reached at SkiWedge.com.

New ski movie may be the “worst you’ve ever seen”

Filmed at 15 ski areas across the U.S., a new ski movie delights in its low budget nature and refers to itself, in a self-deprecating manner, as the “worst ski movie ever made.”

And that was one of the intents of the lighthearted film, titled Cheap Ski Movie. More than 30 Olympic and X Games legends appear in offbeat cameos and ambush interviews. The creator and producer of the film, Jack Turner, states that “everything from packaging to distribution is cheap. We wanted to make a film that people could afford to buy or take their family to.” He adds that the movie is family-safe, with no profanity or drugs, but does admit to “moronic humor.”

Accompanying the movie is a $40,365.79 trivia contest based on the history of skiing and snowboarding scenes in Cheap Ski Movie.
