    It's going to be the 2000's for another 83 years or so,... I'm going to wait for a bit before I cast my vote.

    That was a really good one... probably the best that year (Yearkbook for the year before and Teddybear Crisis the year after)

    Well, in that case, the answer is CLAIM: The Greatest Ski Movie EVER!

    Duh.

    Session 1242 all day long. Tanner and Pep's segments still hold up.

    Sinners - though Waiting Game certainly is in this convo. Either movie ate both TGR or MSP's shorts - maybe for the decade.

    Not sure where to vote, neither had snowblades.

    I got tired of the thunderthud of a lot of stuff, same old same old, selfabsorbed narcissist AK spine lack of storyline.
    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.

    At the time:
    Early 00s: Seth's segments, especially Focused https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeqUkIOO68E
    Later 00s: Hoji's segments, as mentioned above.

    McConkey always cracked me up, but his skiing (while amazing) was never my favorite to watch.

    Nowadays, I get more stoked on smooth, fast skiing in steep, technical terrain rather than lines with big cliffs that were popular in the early-2000s. I kind of agree with Buster, but the Sweetgrass stuff can't always hold my interest.
