7 ski/snowboard films for 2011 that you must watch

A quick warning that what lies ahead is a quick and easy way to waste away an hour of your Monday afternoon. For whatever reasons, ski/snowboard film companies release all of their movie teasers for their fall movies in the dead heat of summer. While I’m out riding mountain bikes and rock climbing, now I can come back to my computer and dream of riding fresh powder in January. Here’s a preview of 7 of the films that I’m looking forward to watching most this fall.

The Art of Flight (Brain Farm Digital Cinema)

After 2009’s That’s It That’s All, I thought the best of the best had been reached in snowboard films. I was wrong. Travis Rice and crew are back filming with Brain Farm and the trailer looks amazing.

All. I. Can (Sherpas Cinema)

All. I. Can. is a three-part environmental film featuring riders like Kye Petersen, Alexis Godbout, and Lynsey Dyer

Attack of La Nina (Matchstick Productions)

MSP’s latest film is a recap of the pounding snow that a portion of the United States saw last winter. Their film includes scenes from Breckenridge, CO all the way to Alyesk, AK.

Lifelong (Aestivation Entertainment)

NATIVE (Seven Devils Films)

If you like backcountry riding, NATIVE is the film for you. NATIVE takes a look at riding the Central Idaho backcountry and the endless amounts of powder that lies in the mountains there.

One (Givin)

The first feature film from snowboarder Keegan Valaika and cinematographer Aaron Hooper, One promises to be a great leap into the ski film world by showcasing riders like Mason Aguirre, Forest Bailey, and Wyatt Stasinos.

Like There’s No Tomorrow (Warren Miller Entertainment)

Warren Miller has always been the king of ski videos, and despite Miller himself having very little to do with the films anymore, WME’s 62nd film deserves to be listed.
