"Ski Patrol" is maybe 10 years old. If you like Adam Sandler movies, then this might appeal to you (heh heh).

Storm is alright, but I'd go with MSP TGR or boor boyz before you go with storm.
If you want, you can record some recent W. Miller movies on the STARZ! Superpak. the have Fifty, Cold Fusion, and ride.
Does anyone know where to buy discount ski movies for TGR MSP or Poor boyz.
One Warren Miller movie not mentioned in this thread is Double Exposure. It stars the Egan brothers skiing and talking about the spirit of skiing and why we all do it. It's in my top 5 (however I can't seem to find a copy except the one my friend has).
Is Double Exposure the film where one of the Egans is skiing along a knife's edge ridge, and the ridge collapse several thousand feet downward but he manages to ski over the falling snow and some how stick one ski on solid snow?
I thought I owned Double Exposure, but I can't find it in my den. Hope I didn't lose it when moving...
Don't just talk about the spirit of skiing, do it. www.skiclinics.com You get taught by the Egans and the DesLauriers. Costs some bucks, but well worth it. I've taken three of their (X-Team) clinics in the past. The Vermont clinic is generally a lot cheaper than the others. Way back when, I think they may have given a clinic at Liberty.
Actually, I went up to Tenney mountain in October which is run by Dan Egan. They have that new Snowmagic system. However, I didn't get to ski as they closed the day I arrived.
Warren Miller's "FIFTY" is kind of cool too.
Sort of a history lesson and a ski flick rolled into one.
