Ski movies help us get through to winter in Vermont!

<<FOLLOW THIS LINK FOR FALL 2015 SKI FILMS IN VERMONT>> Updated 12/20/2013 Skiers in Vermont start getting antsy for snow pretty early in the fall. For me, it’s once I start reaching for fleece jackets or blankets at night. One of the ways we get through this annual ordeal is to gather in theaters to watch ski movies. Hooting and hollering are sometimes involved; it’s all just part of our coping mechanism. Here’s a list of ski films in Vermont...[Read more]

Fall brings ski movies to Vermont

<<FOLLOW THIS LINK FOR FALL 2015 SKI FILMS IN VERMONT>> Updated 12/5/11 How do you get pumped up for the coming ski season? Is it enough to go to a ski swap? Or stroll through a ski store to ogle the new gear? Or do you prefer to rent a couple ski films, or attend a ski movie with a big crowd?  I have to admit it's entertaining to go to a showing of a new ski movie with an audience. People cheer and hoot and holler. It's pretty fun. During fall 2011...[Read more]

Ski films help feed the hunger for the coming ski season

<<FOLLOW THIS LINK FOR THE 2012 LIST OF SKI MOVIES IN VERMONT!>> Updated 11/29/2010 It's been exciting to see the growing variety of ski films that make their way around the country these days. The Warren Miller Company has plenty of competition today. (Thank goodness!) Yes, most films have big air, slick tricks and epic powder shots, but each filmmaker pours a bit of their own personality into their product. And, it's fun to see eastern ski locations in ski films that are shot...[Read more]

Vermont stick season ski movies, swaps, bashes and jams

Good news: Some Vermont ski resorts are firing up their snowmaking systems as temperatures drop again. On Jay Peak, for example, the weather service says it will get down to around 20 degrees (F) each night this week. Brrrrr. Sounds like perfect weather for making snow. Here are a few events in northern Vermont in the next two weeks that can help get you in the mood for early-season skiing. The Cochran's ski swap is this weekend and the Waitsfield ski swap is the following weekend.  My...[Read more]

Snowy Mt. Mansfield and a ski movie get me motivated for ski season

Snowy Mt. Mansfield in the glow of the setting sun.

What a combination: a snowy Mt. Mansfield and the glow of a setting sun. The mountain was pink this afternoon as the sun set. The photo is from a Web cam that is positioned at Burlington International Airport, looking east. All this snow and cold weather gets me in the mood for skiing. Going to the Warren Miller film last night doesn't hurt, either! They had some fun skiing sequences from Iceland (wow, what a unique place!), Crested Butte, Japan, Alaska and even a little bit of Vermont. They...[Read more]

Action-packed ski films coming to a theater near you

<<FOLLOW THIS LINK FOR THE 2012 LIST OF SKI MOVIES IN VERMONT!>> IN A WORLD... where winter blankets the northern reaches of America in copious amounts of snow, one filmmaker (or maybe two) dares to deliver a heart-pumping, ear-throbbing spectacle to salivating skiers year after year. Who are these snow-worshiping heroes? Why do they do it? And, um, how can we get a ticket? That's right: it's time for our annual fall ski flicks. Warren Miller and Teton Gravity Research are making...[Read more]

Pumped up for skiing!

TGR's Lost and Found

Yes, I know it's only October 13, but I'm ready for the ski season. You see, I just made my annual pilgrimage to a ski movie. Each year it's either Warren Miller, Teton Gravity Research or Mountain Films--and sometimes two or three of these! Last night my husband, two friends and I grabbed a quick dinner and headed for Higher Ground in South Burlington to see TGR's new winter flick called "Lost & Found." The music was loud, and I could actually feel it reverberating off my kneecaps, but...[Read more]
