    I'll throw Hugo Harrison into the mix because he's not been mentioned yet. He had some great segments during this period.

    Some of the Sweetgrass productions go too far in a breathey way the other direction , but I have to confess being struck by Valhalla, particularly the forest edits and the old groover vibe.

    Sweetgrass is dope. But post 2010... Valhalla was released in 2013

    I really liked session 1242.... And speaking if T Hall, believe was rad.

    Lame and After Lame are pretty good as well. And available to stream in Vimeo for free too. Wish more companies would do this with their old movies, especially when the companies go defunct

    My vote would have to be for Immersion. I think it does a great job of capturing the essence and emotions of being a skier.

    Maggotwood.

    That's right, the maggots made a movie. Starring LPH, phUnk, Punani, Clack, Tyrone Shoelaces, Greydon Clark, and others that I can't remember right now.

    If LPH is still around, maybe he can put that on the youtubes. I still have my DVD.

    I did really like Steep. Also MSP's In Deep was killer.

    Oh. Also, all of the Theory 3 flicks are the greatest ski movie ever, too.

    Idea was another great movie of the 2007-2008 timeframe. You can watch Idea for free on Vimeo. The no poles thing has passed, and there isn't anything so "epic" about it, but the vibe of the movie I think nails what skiing is all about. Having fun with friends and getting a shit ton of face shots.

    If I made it and I knew how, I would. But LPH made it and I think he swore it would never hit the public internet to get some folks to agree to be filmed.

    As a tele skier, I can say that the first few Powderwhore movies were incredibly inspirational.

    G.N.A.R. - if you consider it a Ski Movie.

    (Otherwise I would go for Signatures as well)

    x2. I typically gravitate toward high energy style films but Immersion just did it for me. Sadly I only have it on VHS, wish I had a digital copy, make it happen Huckasoreass!

    I'll throw a vote in for MSP's War, with great segments from Seth and Pep. My other favorite is 2010 TGR's Light the Wick. The 3-d schtick was pretty lame, I actually only watched the 3d version once. Sage's crevasse gap never gets old for me though, really the whole movie is fucking rad.

    War was a Poor Boyz flick I think.

    Man, hard to pick. MSP's Focused, Yearbook, and Claim all deserve a mention. From TGR High Life, Soul Purpose, and Under the Influence are pretty awesome (the opening sequence of Seth and Sage in AK from Under the Influence still gives me chills every time I watch it). And I definitely enjoyed the early Powderwhores flicks.

    But I might have to go with Swift Silent Deep as the best.

    Agreed. I like the comic book style of it. Kinda different. Plus some real good skiing. I think JP had a sweet segment in that one too
