Different colors than what I've seen around NY......
There was a segment in Wintervention there, or somewhere similar at least. Red rock canyons and such. It was pretty awesome.
I saw Revolver, it was good. Our DVD skipped though, and I made a thread on Newschoolers about it, some other people had the same issue.
I'm seeing Eye Trip in two weeks, that's supposed to be a good one. I'm thinking about downloading CS Films/The Gold Project's Fools Gold, that's one I definitely need to see. It's only $4 for the digital download here.
**They've had a few downloading issues for people using Mac's and Internet Explorer on Windows 7. I'm not sure if they've resolved it or not.
But I definitely really want to see Light the Wick by TGR. TGR is never disappointing to me.
Found this over on TGR. The music is a bit lame but the skiers and skiing are UNREAL. Consider also that the skiing is pretty much all in real time, not slo-mo. Mike Douglas' reaction to turning 40 is very impressive. Gotta go vacuum now, will be replaying this in my head.
So I got the Fools Gold digital download from NS and Light the Wick from iTunes. Maybe it was the stoke factor of skiing with half the kids in it, but I definitely think it was better than MSP's Revolver and it held my attention better than Light the Wick. Granted it was half the length, but it was awesome. For $4 you can't go wrong, especially to support some locals. The editors, Craig Stay and Alex Savarie, are Whiteface locals and Galin Foley's in Vermont.
There's a powder segment from skinning up Big Jay and something up in the Eastern High Peaks area.
I think you have to sign up for a Newschoolers account to download it. It only takes few minutes, though.
**If you do download it, make sure you click the "Fools Gold - Digital Download" button after you're redirected to the NS Store from PayPal. It's right under the stuff about order confirmation I believe. (I forgot to click that and closed out of the page. They had to refund me and I had to do everything over again.)
Trailer: (It's Vimeo, click play then pause quick to let it buffer so it won't be jerky)
That bike video is fantastic, love the scenery and music too.
Here's a great one from Dave Heath, brother of Bill Heath, the creator of Sinners and Ski Your Ass Off. It is "a photographic homage to the early days of skiing...all shot and produced during the month of March 2010." As usual with Vimeo, let it load before viewing.
Found a great one posted over on TGR. The footage reminds me a lot of a the film "Signatures," which is well worth seeing if you get a chance. A ski trip to Japan would be something else, both from a skiing perspective and as a cultural experience.
