I'm a skier, and this movie is one of my all time favorites. Please understand, though... this is not a movie to attempt to digest - there are holes in the plot that you could fly a 747 through. It's just satisfying fluff. The scenery is beautiful, the characters are all "perfect", the basic premise of the plot is semi believable, the skiing sequences (when not burdened by something so mundane as a plot) are absolutely phenomenal - the first time you watch it, you'll be tempted to fast forward through the dialog, simply for the ski sequences. Don't do it; the movie tricks you into believing that it's worth watching. You'll be cheering for PJ while he deals with contrived moral issues, trying to slap Dexter when he makes a bad decision, looking in your mailbox for an invitation to a party from Bryce, and wildly spinning your radio dial searching for Robin's radio show - and then you remember "Hey - it was just a movie, and I only watched it for the ski shots!"
Again, this is a must have movie for all skiers to tide you through long summers with no snow.
