      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Ski Porn!

I love how they're all giggling like it's a drunk stunt like blowing shit up in a campfire.

There is this ski slope stabilization porn. Russians know how to have fun.

 

It looks like the slide took out a pylon? I wonder if they were laughing about that ;)

I don't ski really, but i thought this was worth watching :)
That was singularly some of the best filmography I've seen on the innerwebz, EVER! What a creation!

It should win an award... a BIG one! :tup: :tup:

 

A grand find, pink. Thanks for that!

The skiing is great, but what sets it apart is the grubby smelter town environment - the smokestack, barking dog, dirty snow, gray skies...

Definitely, and it did (check out 4:35) ;)

The skiing was awesome and fun, but what really did it for me was the truly great cinematography and stunning visual effects.

This film is definitely worthy of those awards. Glad that talent was recognized where it exists.

Wow...

Yes, that, but also the slo-mo scenes of the boy missing him with the snowball, the old man on the tri-wheeler, and the water dripping in close-up; the switching between the close-ups of the skis going backwards and then the long shot as he rotates to forward, and again the switching between close-ups of his boots at the bus stop and the long shot; the long shot of the aerials as he comes down the winding road, popping up repeatedly in the distance as he gets closer and closer, then the close-ups as he schusses through the yards and into a more urban environment, finally crossing streets in front of cars and bombing down narrow alleys between houses, his environment going from wide open to more and more constricted; the fact that you never really get a good look at his face, only a vague notion that he's a bearded guy; and lastly the viewer is left with the thought that as he waits for the bus, with the readerboard noting "UPHILL", he's getting on to go up and make another run. Now how cool is that? :)
