    A Fine Line... Excellent Movie, go see it if comes near you!

    Was a the sold out show at The Capital in Nelson last night. This was one of the best ski movies I've seen in years. Had enough skiing representation from the "stars" of the day to keep the interest in the main message of getting backcountry education before stepping beyond the ski area boundarys. Very different from the formula movies of recent. Some unreal avalanche footage, especially the helmet cam footage of Dan Treadway being overcome on his sled...wow! If this movie doesn't make the uneducated sign up for an avi course, I don't know what will. Props to the boyz at Rocky Mountain Serpas!

    Absolutely!

    I was there too, and I thought they nailed it. The Capitol crowd loved it too - I was sitting right in front of the filmamkers, and they were talking about how stoked they were at the crowd response.

    This movie should be required viewing in all ski town high schools.

    bump - saw the movie tonight and was seriously blown away. Go see it when you have the chance and if it doesn't roll through your town buy the DVD.

    Saw it last night and was stoked to finally see the finished product. They did a fantastic job. Hopefully they get the recognition that they deserve for making a long-needed film.

    Yes, a very fine film. I thought the "acted" part was kind of cheesy, especially right next to the chilling avalanche victim interviews. Too bad the volume at the 6:30 showing was loud to the point of being painful. My ears are still ringing.

    A Fine Line also had maybe the best single sequence ever in a ski movie with the animated/stop action history of civilization leading up to extreme skiing. Simply brilliant! I might buy the video just to watch that one part over and over.

    It was very good but the volume was at 11. Maybe for all the parents of the film makers at the back. True the "acting " was cheesie but the interviews were chilling.

    Bridger Bowl sponsored the show in Bozeman. Some sweet time lapse footy in the opening, lots of good avi porn, an amusing little animated history of skiing, nice stock hucking from TGR and others, and mostly I liked the sentiment the film ended with. That guy who got pwnd on Roger's Pass did indeed tell a chilling story but I liked how at the end he was all "was it worth it? uh... yeah"

    good show though, take a look if you get the chance
