..Like there is no tomorrow

I went to Warren Miller‘s 2012 movie – .. Like there is no tomorrow – the other night. As usual, very inspirational stuff. As usual, it marks the imminent arrival of the ski season.

We revisit skiing in Kashmir – where the lifties carry semi-automatic weapons!

There is lots of heli-skiing.

Skiing on Mt Washington – two guys skin up to the top of a big big bowl.

We go to Alaska.

There is some amazing stuff – like the Norwegian guy who’s parents own a ski lodge, and has his own snow plow, and has his own international freestyle competition.

The skiing and boarding in the back country is just – wow!

We even visit New Zealand – where I live! Though the accents seemed a bit contrived. And I must correct the film: according to Te Ara there are 40 million sheep in New Zealand – not 30.

The segment I found most inspiring was watching the retired Olympic skiers tackling the back country. Their style and form was effortless and graceful.
