Steep would have been enough ski porn for awhile, but then I saw that Return to Schralptown was playing at New Belgium Brewery as a fundraiser for the excellent Colorado Avalanche Information Center. With beer. For donations. A cause too worthy to ignore.
I enjoyed this movie more than Steep. The emphasis is less on stunts, and more on the places and the environmental issues facing them. Their own description pretty much hits it – “a film that captures the emotion, struggle, and elation of backcountry skiing and snowboarding while focusing on environmental stewardship, avalanche awareness, and innovation in the sport.”
