Great 70's Film
2 December 2006 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Saw this when I was a kid and loved it. Two guys hang gliding & skiing through the Southern Alps of New Zealand. The technical ability to ski where they did is still highly impressive thirty years later. Often nowadays I see similar stunts which in my opinion still don't come close to the exhilaration of what the did with virtually no backup or support. The hang gliding ability also is great and must have been dangerous particularly in the changing wind flows through the southern alps

This was filmed when NZ was relatively unknown except for hard core ski junkies and shows some great scenes of the country.

Thinking now what they needed to do to actually get up there with all the 1970s gear, let alone film it was true reward when nominated for an academy award in 1977.

The Theme song sung by John Hanlon 'Higher Trails' was a great choice and still today is representative of the era.

Wherever these guys are now, they must be really happy to look back on this achievement. Wonder where they ended up after this?
