It's very good for the money if you buy the level 1 six pack. Even if you dont buy it with the six pack, you can still see a bunch of skiers you wouldnt otherwise. Circhton's break out year segment is good too. If you have some extra money and want to watch an east coast oriented old ski movie...well here you go.
The quality is good. Obviously, from the time it was shot, film quality is not optimal. But it has some good skiing.
2nd generearion is a huge step up from balance, showing smoother skiing, and more rails. Dave Crichtonâ€™s segment is really good, along with steele, tanner, jon(although short), mikael, and marc andre. There are some great features including a step up to the roof of a building and a huge summer gap by sterbenz. There are also great shots of Brendan Buchar and many other that you wonâ€™t see in films like Propaganda or ski movie 2. Added bonus: Laughs at hibbertâ€™s expense as he does a switch to rail and nuts himself and a failed double back attempt on a road gap. Crichtonâ€™s segment is the best part of the movie, and itâ€™s a great segment.
Big Mountain 1.5
Overall Skiing 4
+Good crash segment. Chrichtonâ€™s segment, unique footage, skiers not in any other movies
-weird music, not much outside the park
Keep in mind, my little ratings system is adjusted for the year it was made. So dont compare a rating 7 from the 1999-2000 ski movies to the 2007-2008 ski movies
