6 New Ski Movies to Get You Stoked on Snow

6 New Ski Movies to Get You Stoked on Snow

It’s that time of year: summer is already fading like a distant memory, and we’re officially starting to get excited about the upcoming winter season.

Here in Whistler, we scope out the mountains each morning to see if the snowline has started creeping down yet. We’re also placing bets on when we’ll see the first snowfall down in the valley. It’s safe to say that we’re starting to get the itch for ski and snowboard season.

To keep us busy while we wait, we start waxing our gear, we pick up a few new pieces of gear -- and we watch a lot of ski movies.

Ski movie season in Whistler is an exciting time of year. Whether we’re watching an endless marathon with friends on someone’s couch or we’re gathered for a pro athlete-studded premiere in the Village, we’re paying close attention to the new 2014 releases.

The crop of ski films this year looks very promising. We’ve compiled a list of the hottest ski films of the season to tide you over until the mountains open next month.

Pretty Faces

Pro skier Lynsey Dyer couldn’t figure out why the sky film industry was neglecting to include female athletes, despite the fact that plenty of women love skiing. So she decided to make her own ski movie. Pretty Faces features some of the world’s most talented female mountain athletes showcasing what they do best. Check out the Whistler premiere, which coincides with the celebration of the International Day of the Girl and features some awesome local female speakers.

The Little Things

Professional Whistler-based snowboarder Marie-France Roy decided that it was time to produce a snowboard film centered around some serious questions about sustainability and the environment, so she gathered a supremely talented crew and created The Little Things. The Whistler premiere is coming upon October 16th and is sure to be an unforgettable evening.

Higher

If you’ve seen the first two films in Jeremy Jones’ spectacular snowboard triology, Deeper and Further, then you know that the third and final film,

Higher, will dazzle your mind. Pro snowboarder and environmental advocate Jeremy Jones is known for producing revolutionary films. Higher brings you even closer to the man, the myth, the legend.

Almost Ablaze

When the iF3 – the International Freeski Film Festival—awards a film with its Film of the Year prize, you know it’s worth checking out. TGR’s Almost Ablaze took home the top prize at this year’s awards, making it a must-see for ski film lovers everywhere. You can check it out when the iF3 festival comes to Whistler this weekend.

After Glow

Last year, Sweetgrass Productions blew it out of the park with their hit ski film Valhalla. This year, they’ve launched After Glow, a film that may be short (only 11 minutes long), but that could very well revolutionize the ski film industry. Outside Magazine called it “the year’s most captivating ski film”. Here are the only four words you need to know: glow in the dark.

Days of My Youth

Skiing is more than just a passion – it’s a lifestyle. That’s the idea MSP Films and Red Bull Media House’s Days of My Youth. Combining a compelling narrative with tons of action-packed mountain sequences, this film will have you lusting for lots and lots of snow.
