I couldn't wait any longer....I busted out a ski flick and watched it today. I tried to fend off the urge but wasn't successful. Does anyone else here get into watching ski flicks? If so which ones are your favorites?? I enjoy some of the older (not too old) Warren Miller and anything TGR usually offers plenty of stoke. I haven't ventured into anything MSP yet. I have also thought about buying a Meatheads movie just to get some East Coast stoke...... How bout you?? What do you watch??

"Video has been removed by user" is that it says on youtube?? I also spent a little while the other day looking at videos from whitegrass and other local areas. Its amazing to see the amount of powder in the backwoods at whitegrass.

I have been watching out ski videos since the beginning of August.

I am definitely ready for the ski season to start. It is supposed to snow here in the upper elevations.. maybe 2-4 above 7,000 feet.

Checking the weather forecast for the next few days, the overnight lows will be in the low 30s, that will be some coooold mornings and I love it!

I can't stand not watching a ski movie no matter what time of the year it is. If I am feeling down, I put in a ski movie. If I am bored, I put in a ski movie. Anyways, you get the point. I watch a lot of MSP, which, I feel has the best soudtracks of any film company right now for ski movies. I occasionally watch a TGR, which are close to as good as MSP, but not at the same notch anymore. I'll also watch Poor Boys Films, which mostly consist of freestyle

A really interesting movie that is coming out this year is called Linescore. It is a documentary about competitive freeskiers. The best skiers that are out there that nobody even knows exist. It shows how amazing these skiers are and how dangerous these weekend warriors have it when it comes down to the nitty-gritty.

ooops! Above 7,000 feet here in northern Utah. I am freezing right now. Tromano and I made a trip tonight up to our local mountain, Beaver Mt. (skithebeav.com), to check out if it was snowing yet, but nothing but rain. Alta/Snowbird down in SLC are expecting 3-7 inches. I am soooo ready for the snow.

We also just finished watching The Waiting Game, pretty good ski flick.

I dunno, TGR's Anomaly is the holy grail of recent ski movies in my book \:\) MSP flicks have a little more jibbing than TGR it seems, but you still gotta watch flicks from both because they have each have different rosters of skiers. BTW, there is a premiere/tour of the new MSP film coming up in Nov in bethesda I think at walt whitman HS.

I'll answer my own question. Queenoftheslopes moved to Utah recently. She has not yet changed her personal address in DCSki.

Crunchy, you are right. I do own an older TGR movie called Mind: the Addiction. My main focus on why I like TGR is that it is more well rounded than MSP by having more big mountain and also snowboarding in it, which I am also a boarder as well as a skier. But for me, the tunes in MSP set it apart, and my initial background did start out in freestyle, so I am more naturally attracted to it overall. I can tend to get bored with just skiing alone, just like how I can never watch just snowboarding down a hill. For that remedy, I would watch something like Mtn Lab which is a few years old now, but it also has very good tunes and captures a common interest from what I watch for skiing.

Sorry, I forgot to put a warning up in my original post...those videos can be addictive, especially how you just move from one to another to another to another....you get what I am saying.

So tromano and I drove down to Park City Friday night for the Utah premier of the new TGR film "Lost and Found" it was a fun film, with a lot of great lines. Definitely another that I want to by.

I am also curious about the new Linescore (I think) film that follows the lives of competitive free-skiers.

btw, there is a tv channel called "Fuel TV" that alot of you might have that has sweet boarding and ski programs. (i know on directv its 612) seems like there are more snowboarding shows than ski, but 'tgr untracked' series is also on there thats pretty cool, but its all snow porn, so its all equally sweet.
