Another year, another Warren Miller ski movie; winter is here; the ski season is almost upon us – in the southern Hemisphere.

Two standout segments: the incredible cheesy ninja segment; and the young lady skiing down a mountain in Greenland dressed in a pink one-piece swimsuit (all the way to a hot tub)!

This year’s movie is much like previous movies – ‘guys’ and ‘gals’ doing amazing things in amazing snowy places. Though I am noticing a growing theme: patriotism and climate change. This is the second year in a row with some footage featuring returned service men and a growing recognition of climate change. Of course climate change negatively affects snow sports – so just like hunters make for reasonable conservators, so skiers (and snowboarders) are keen to preserve snowy climate systems. Maybe if enough snow sports people band together, we can make a positive contribution to the climate change debate.
