as always, the beginning of the ski season – in New Zealand – is marked by the screening of Warren Millar’s latest ski epic. This year it was named Flow State.

It is packed with the usual amazing snow scenery and ski-and-board action. Well it is normal by Warren Millar standards the rest of us just dream.

The heli-ski action is just amazing.

This year there is more footage from the perspective of the skiers and boarders – the cost, size, quality of helmet / chest mounted cameras coming down, coming down, and yet going up.

This year was also a first in two other aspects: patriotism and global warming. It looks like the ski resort of Vale was originally the training base for the 10th Mountain Division during World War II. One Nordic / Alpine skiing sequence was only possible because the winter pack ice had retreated from the Nordkinn Pennisula, and they were able to sail a yacht up the fiord.
