Halloween Costumes, full size candy bars, and shot glasses are all now safely back in the closet until next year, it’s time to start dreaming about winter.title card Luckily for ALL of us, friend of FIS, Adam Klein Productions, made just what the doctor ordered when he tossed together this great flick featuring some shots from the peak ski period of last winter. I’m not really sure how he got such killer shots, but I’m pretty sure that Adam produced this one by hooking his dreamscape up to his VHS recorder. Pretty revolutionary if you ask me. Anyway, it totally rocks, and note well his judicious use of FIS Weather; well played Adam… well played indeed.

This is the latest in our Local Film Series that we’re running in order to feature and promote small, independent, non-commerical ski flicks. Why spend piles of dollars to go see a glorified commercial when there’s “flickering-light-stoke” that’s not trying to sell you anything available free from the comfort of your office chair? Enjoy!

    I can relate to the home-spun shots,from the bedroom popping the shade to twig-trimming favorite unmarked glades. Will be TT this weekend at JP, though the WC is calling for rain high up on the hills may be flakeage. old patched-up rockies coming w me just in case. won’t be long. thanks G for posting this clip which was very good.

    I go to bed every night and pray that Burke will never, ever change from the amazing place it is today, and has been for all of my 25 years as a passholder there. I think they are doing it right, but I still worry.

    If I lived where he lived I would be eating alot, alot of meatball subs.

    on another note, not sure FIS should be advocating clipping glades, Unless you are on private land, its terrible for long term forestry and should not be encouraged.

      Great great comment BWD. Thanks for the perspective. I hope you get your dream!

      As far as advocating trimming in NO WAY WHATSOEVER do the views of the filmmakers reflect that of FIS. We just happen to like the flick., but let me be clear thatwe did NOT produce the film.

      I hear what you’re saying loud and clear, and I think I’m just going to say “let’s leave it at that.” That work?

    BWD and G: the twig-trimming mentioned in my post is on existing glade trails at JP where small stems have grown up or sideways to interfere with safe use of the trail, not virgin woods. The snips used are the same used to trim rose bushes, not loping shears as in the video. JP and all VT has a “don’t hack it” policy as to virgin, out-of-bounds, cutting. So we’re on the same page.

    Friday night (11/11) JP upper mtn picked up 6-8″. Some guns were blowing on SS. Hiked it today. Saw tracks from boards and skis on Haynes. by 11:00 AM it was too soft, sticky, heavy, and unpacked to handle. saw 2 college girls schlepping up with their boards but doubt they rode it. tepms in mid-40s, too warm, but base is started on upper stuff. the few who kiked early Sat had good snow.

    Greg – Kudos on FIS’ Local Film Series, it is great to see you promoting these folks and their short form ski flicks! I sent links from HA’s, Adam’s, and Alpine Live’s great mountain-ocean double header videos to two guys I’ve been skiing with for decades in advance of our annual trip to Redbones BBQ/Warren Miller. They absolutely loved the three films, saying what they saw matched their winter outdoor experiences much more closely than WM’s offerings of endless heli trips! (I have to admit I was quite fond of this year’s WM shots from Tucks, Squaw, and Sugar Bowl :) I think your Local Film Series offer experiences that are much more accessible than the big time ski flicks – get more of these flicks up there!
