skeazlaurenI liked the documentary, it provided a nice insight into the lives of a few skiers who have made it to a profesional level. Although they advertised the documentary falsely as well as the wording of the title.
Let me break this down for you:
Most of skiing is not that dramatic. That's one reason why I like it so much. It's people helping people and chilling out and having fun. That leaves us with two conclusions about the "documentary".
1. The drama, such as the coach/mentor woman crying randomly about how dangerous it is, was staged. That misrepresents everyone.
2. That shit really happens in that comp crew, in which case, those people don't represent the rest of us, meaning the movie doesn't represent the rest of us.
Either way, the movie did a shit job of showing what we're all about. I didn't start skiing park because I wanted to be a serious Olympic athlete and train and shit. I started because it looked fucking fun and the chill culture appealed to me. That's true for most people. They completely ignored all of that.
