Great history of Extreme Skiing ...
5 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really liked this film because it is so focused ... no rambling dialog or mishmash of ski footage. The filmmakers have gone to great length to get the pictures and video that heralded the start of what is now called "Extreme Skiing". The clips are all backed up with current commentary from the (surviving) pioneers that are depicted in them.

It's fascinating to hear about what they were thinking as they poured down 50+ degree slopes in Europe and then the US. As one skier put it, these were guys who were thinking: "I wonder what else I can do on skis".

They pushed the envelope for themselves and showed the rest of the world how incredible humans can be. From the steeps of Chamonix to the Chugach in Alaska, the scenery and the dialog is incredible. A wonderful, informative film for skiers and non-skiers alike.
