If you like skiing or snowboarding, chances are you'll really love this movie. I happen to like snow sports, so I really enjoyed the visually rich treat and excellent audio track.
Basically, this movie is a collection of visually stunning skiing and snowboarding scenes. The scenes (or segments) are unrelated to each other and are separated by shots from a busy metropolis. If there is one weak aspect to the film, it is this strange arbitrariness. It is very awkward. However, it is somewhat overshadowed by the great visuals and audio.
All of these segments are beautifully done and with highly vibrant colors. See it in high-definition or IMAX to get the most out of it. There are skiing / snowboarding scenes that I have never seen done anywhere - like where they all do a 360 degree lateral loop - or are skiing at night with only hand-held sparklers. Absolutely stunning.
The audio is outstanding as well. The music is a wonderful selection of styles and will likely appeal to a broad range of tastes. Furthermore, I have never heard the 'sounds' of people going over rails; these are great effects.
My recommendation is to see this movie if you enjoy snow sports. It's only 40 minutes and you'll likely be entertained.
