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.
