Powderwhore Are Breaking Trails Again

October 8th, 2011

As the first snows fall in Scotland and the powder hounds and whores start breaking out the snow tools, so the rash of new ski movies and trailers proliferates round the tube. Powderwhore productions have been out and about, ignoring mechanised up lift and breaking trail in very unusual locations. Possibly the most exotic of their venues was the island of Svalbard, where Philip Pullman set his trilogy of novels based on His Dark Materials. Despite the unfortunate death of the English schoolboy earlier this year, the powder whores seem to have got off lightly, with no armoured fighting bears being sighted.

The main trailer released back in August gives a hint of beautiful untracked powder and vertiginous gullies raked by self triggered slab avalanches.

The excursion to Svalbard looked exceptionally beautiful. Many years ago I had my heart set on a visit to Svalbard where we were going to climb in the King Olaf Mountains. Sadly despite being patronised by the Duke of Westminster, one of the richest men in the UK, it didn’t help us raise the necessary cash and we weren’t able to go. Despite the unfortunate incidents of this summer, seeing this trailer has really given me the itch again. This next video details the time spent sailing around the fjord is of this icy land and the visual juxtaposition of peak, glacier, couloir and ocean is very compelling. You will see what I mean.

This is one film I want to see. It seems to have got rid of the usual carnival of posers and ponces. A lot more environmentally friendly than some of the helicopter heroics which we’ve seen in previous years movies from others in the genre. ┬áKeep it going Powderwhore; breaking trails to a slightly less destructive version of skiing.

What would you do if you were stuck on a ski lift like they were in Frozen?

June 12th, 2011

I want to hear some really imaginative suggestions! I personally would swing my coat over the wire and go down like a zip line. How about you guys? And also, what did you think of the movie?

I thought the movie was actually pretty good. Most movies that involve people being stuck in one spot for a couple days, tend to suck (Open Water, Phone booth) But this one was pretty good. And not to knock your idea, but the wire in the movie cut through his gloves pretty fast, so it would probably tear causing you to fall, break your legs, and get eaten by wolves haha. I would have had the same idea…but i would have either used the Snowboard, or one of that guy’s ski poles. At least that is metal and might last longer. Or maybe even use one of their boots? those seem pretty durable. I for SURE would not have Jumped!

What is the name of the movie?

June 5th, 2011

The movie is about a kid who’s father died at Chamonix (ski resort) and then he goes back to ski the same run that killed his father. It’s a big mountain ski movie. I can’t remember what the movies is called. All I remember is that the kid goes to Chamonix and he’s about 14 years old or something when he does.

The Edge of Never
