Avalanche Alley (2001)
Really scary if you haven't slept in 72 hours and taking sleeping pills.
First things first. I lived in a ski resort up on the mountain in the Rockies. Why would anyone build a ski resort in an avalanche risk area and then set off avalanche bombs to trigger a slide to wipe out the resort you work for? I know almost all the ski patrol's out there would S@#$% bricks if people thought they were this incompetent.
Ok I saw this piece of work during one of my insomniac spells recently. So my state of mind wasn't all that great to begin with on top of trying to knock myself out with some sleeping pills. So only with this state of mind did I get scared out of my pants with this movie. Now I am a long time skier/boarder [I did Delirium Dive, Sunshine Village], but the scenes being trapped under the snow were dead on real, and very claustrophobic. The acting wasn't that great, but the aerial snowboard scenes were not that bad for a movie shot in B.C.
So all in all, only see this movie if you had one too many, because you don't you might fall into holes of the plot line.
