Ooooootah showings of Yearbook Review ..
The peeps ..
@ Suede, cool to some old faces (the meats,monkey, etc.) and some new (gramps, etc.)
The flick ...
-As Md9 would say, "Mark Abma is a bahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad mang"
-Sarah Burke is HOT like the girl next door is hot; one day you just wake and the girl next door is irrisitably HOT.
-Ingrid Backstrom had by far the best chick segment ever put on film; the movie is worth seeing just for her segment alone. I thought Lynsey Dyer really charged in Soul Purpose, but Ingrid made her look like a school girl - literally. All I could do was holler at the end of her segment; if they wouldn't have flashed her name up - I would've sworn it was a guy skiing.
Tanner is still an idiot (even though he threw down a couple sick tricks)
and Soul Purpose will get flick of the year"... she'll never need a doctor; 'cause I check her out all day"

Just got back from this show as well....
I loved the McConckey/Holes ski-baseing, Mark Abma's opening segment was sweet, and Backstrom did indeed kill it. The pseudo-bullet time shots were pretty unique, but overall I thought the movie was a little jib-heavy.
Good stuff though - any stoke in October is good stoke in my book.

Tanner looked like a third grader from Florida trying to ski those big lines. I like the guy's style in the park, but get into the big mountain arena a bit more. Jibbin ain't skiingWhen you gonna get dem' Duke Boys!?!?

The Ski-BASEing was sweet, but about 5 minutes too long... Mark Abma's segment was sick, Ingrid's was sick, and then the movie started to go downhill -- I almost fell asleep during the jib section with the slow music. Having Seth in the movie just for the sake of having Seth is pretty weak, and takes time away from somebody else who could have put in a killer segment, rather than recount how crappy the snow was. How is that stoke?!? Music was sub-par from year's past... Not so much band choice, but the track selections, other than Backstroms. The chicks in the intro were the best part of the movie. Super sick booter angles made some pretty basic tricks look crazy huge!!! Fancy camera work was definitely the highlight of the movie for me. TH's double grab was pretty rad too.
Good to see, but I won't be buying it.
edit: I've forgotten a bunch of it already, and I just saw it a couple days ago, if that says anything. But Hugo Harrison is fucking Superman for not ripping his body in half during that crash!!! Liked the spin's off cliffs that lots more guys are doing, but landing switch in pow still just isn't working well for most people, and even less of those are actually turning out of it.
More beer please.

Interesting Baker.......I loved the movie. I thought it was the best ski flick I have seen. The cinematography was fucking amazing. If you didn't like the movie you have to at least give it that. MSP really stepped it up this year. I was blown away.
Abma's segment - I had no idea he could ski so well. Didn't know he wasn't just a jibber. His switch turns in pow were shot so well too.
Ingrid's segment - Heh, what else can you say. The best female ski performance ever. To top it off she throws a backflip off a 30 footer. I can't say anymore.....I was floored. I knew she killed it, I hadn't seen her ski since college when she was banging gates....but I had no idea. God damn.
Shane's segment.....kick ass. Was stoked to finally see a full segment from Shane again.
Oh, and Tanner's segment. It just made me laugh.
I think the amount of jibbing in the flick was just about right. I was really stoked to NOT see any comp footage either.
Yah, so I liked the movie.
Props to MSP for the best flick of the year. I really doubt anyone else (Level1, PBP, or anyone else) will top that. I will actually be buying that soon.
On another note it was great to meet all of the maggots tonight that I hadn't met yet. Good times were had at Monkey's place......and yes the ratio was about 3 girls to every guy. I have never seen that in Park City. Nice work Monkey!

1242 was better than Yearbook, I'm thinking PBP is overdue for a movie of the year. I haven't seen their 2 movies from this year, but don't count them out yet. Yearbook was great though, the camerawork was jaw-dropping.
I heard Abma has a big section in Warren Miller and PBP as well, this might be his breakthrough season. Good fer him.

Don't get me wrong, the cinematography was incredible, but I would hardly say it an improvement. Last year they had so many creative angles, ziplines above the pipe, next to jumps at numerous locations. This year all they had was the really cool shots from the heli at whistler. While really good, it was all they had where last year there was a lot more variety.

So I walk into the kitchen, and I immediately stop because of the fear I feel by being around 9 hot Utah blondes dressed in short skirts, tight black pants and little dresses.
Most of the girls where accentuating proportionately large perfectly round breasts with a tight low cut blouse, and a margarita or wine cooler.
The fear made me smile say hello, and wish I had my sunglasses on. I skippered my way to the kitchen bar trying (not) to run into any tight sweaters and picked up a white chocolate covered pretzel stick. So soon there after, I found my self licking it nervously, until I realized that it wasn’t turning any one on but me, so I stopped.
(At the keg again) I found my self thinking about the chicks in the kitchen and the Yearbook premier in PC.
Bummed I couldn’t be there but stoked I had the kitchen, and white chocolate covered pretzel sticksPoints on their own sitting way up high

sitting on the pool table alternately straining my neck left or right to see the large screen or the tvs, respectively, depending on how the crowd and the moon were aligned or shifting at any given moment.......
HELLO MARK ABMA!
HELLO BEST FEMALE SKI SEGMENT EVER! (that would be backstrom, not burke) the movie is worth the 10 bucks right there for that.
good bye tanner hall, please learn how to ski. marc andre lands switch in the pow a lot prettier than you do anyway.
need to see this movie again. NEED TO GO SKIING SOON. VERY SOON.
and thanks a ton to ski monkey for hosting pre/post game!

Sweet night. Ski Monkey had a solid party, I couldn't believe how many women were there considering I was going to a party I found out about on the internet It was great to meet some people from here - Meatdrink9, Meatsofevil, Lynx, Tresckow, Midget and of course Ski Monkey are the ones that come to mind. (And of course the one person that mentions me, Xover, is the person I can't place. Where did I run into you? )
I think I set a new personal record for smuggling in folks w/ my fake ID. (3 including myself... good ole' Suede). The show itself was really good I - I think they delivered on all fronts except music. I agree the cinematography was the best I've seen. These guys had real good big mountain stuff, and they filmed it with continuous shots that gave perspective to the lines, something lacking in the TGR movie this year. Amazing how things can turn around for MSP in just one year - my friends and I thought Focused pretty much blew last year.
I never made it back to Ski Monkey's, I ended up running into some friends At Suede and post-partied up the road a ways in jeremy ranch. Thanks for the hospitality Ski Monkey, and it was great to see everybody!

How you doin?
Anyone stick around and meet the rockstars?
It's gotta be a cool feeling to just kill it in a ski movie, and then hang out in the bar having people come up and buy you drinks and tell you how rad you are. Such self-restraint, cause had it been me, I would have been covered with beer, yelling loudly, and groping chicks. They must go to rock star training school before these premiers, cause there was none of the above mentioned behavior. Either that or pro skiers are much cooler than rock stars. Such a good show, and good seeing you all.

Damn, sounds like I should have made it to Monkey's house. Hit o'shucks after the show for beers and the requisite last call bar fight. (a good one--two dudes cornered this guy on the side walk, and he proceeded to embarrass them both.) Then had to make the drive back to SLC. (I slept, someone else drove).
Good to put some faces to the aliae. I'll have some pics posted on powmag eventually...

Ok, it's taken me a couple days to get this up...
Thanks to everyone that attended the warm up party and the after hours(what a great idea to run to main st at 1230 to get last call long islands for $3). I was amazed at how many people showed up. As was mentioned, there were more women than men there. ...especially the single women type. If I had known so many would be there I would have invited some single men from around town for them to prey upon.
It was great meeting so many new people(too many to list and I don't want to forget anyone), maggots and non maggots alike.
A special thanks goes out to Lynx, Tresckow, Kristen and Z for helping to put my place back together the next morning when I had to bail for work. Man, I felt like shit all day. The tourists sure got what they paid for on their tour at the UOP sunday.
We'll have to do it again some time...
