Pumped up for skiing!

TGR's Lost and Found

TGR's Lost & FoundYes, 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 besides that the show was fast-paced and fun.

Some of the highlights include some crazy skiing by a 17-year-old extreme skiing phenom, a sick (and I rarely use that word) display of Alaskan off-piste skiing by the seasoned snowboarder Jeremy Jones, and some amazing sit-ski moves by a Quebec-born skier named Marc Andre Belliveau, who is paralyzed from his waist down after a skiing accident last year. Wow.

I don't know about you, but I leave the theater expecting to have to scrape snow off the car windshield.
