Get Stoked with these Ski Movies.
The skis are tuned, the bags are packed and now you’re waiting for the snow to fall. Here are five flicks to inspire you for the upcoming season.
1. Tight Loose
Teton Gravity Research celebrates their 21st birthday with the release of Tight Loose showcasing the company’s classic style of keeping things buttoned up tight so it all stays together when all hell breaks loose. This year the crew goes full-throttle on lines from India to Alaska, slowing down only to pay homage to some of the best segments from past films. See where Tight Loose is premiering in a town near you.
2. Ruin and Rose
Not your typical powder filled ski porn, Ruin and Rose producers enlisted acclaimed writer Ben Sturgulewski. It tells a tale that follows a young boy living on the edge of the desert in a post-apocalyptic world as he searches for evidence for the long lost wonders of a snow-filled winter. The result is a contrast of breathtaking ski segments on some of the world’s most scenic snow covered peaks against a world that struggles to find water. More about the movie.
Level 1’s latest flick dives into the exploration of this hedonistic behavior we call “Living the Dream”. From being broke on the road to risking the backcountry unknown a vibrant cast of characters showcases the “local tourist” mentality by proving that sometimes your backyard ski hill is just as good as any destination.
The all-female Shades of Winter crew presents their third feature film sharing the journey from the volcanoes of Hawaii to the spines of Alaska and capturing the special moments between. Watch the world’s top female athletes get pitted and shred steep lines. Check out the crew.
5. Here, There & Everywhere
Sixty-seven years ago the godfather of ski films released his first flick. Today, Warren Miller Entertainment continues to carry the torch capturing the humor and beauty of skiing with the same sense of adventure as the first film. Get more on Miller.
