Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Netflix / AmazonPrime / Red Bull - good ski films?

Anything good on the above platforms worth a watch - I'm thinking of longer length films rather than 5 minute youtube stuff?

Red Bull always has a rotation of decent films - I've seen everything from Streif to big Matchstick offerings on there. Looks like they currently have a Mikaela documentary as well

Cheers folks - the Red Bull stuff doesn't seem to have been rotated in ages - same old stuff for most of the winter from what I recall.

Really enjoyed La Liste, but that was last season...

There's quite a lot on Youtube, full length feature-wise.

Attack of La Nina
Warren Miller's Like There's no Tomorrow

(all available via the echoboom sports channel)

Also a genuinely incredible 40 minute promotional video called "Magnetic" from Whistler Blackcomb, it's actually one of the best ski movies I've seen

Red Bull had Ruin & Rose up a while back (bit preachy but a bit different). They also had Supervention which is my favourite ski movie, and have now added Supervention II. If you've not seen it then Days of My Youth is superb and Same Difference offers a nice perspective on the different disciplines, the Paddy Graham jump in Livigno was shown on Ski Sunday this year and is mind blowing.

In complete contrast to the Red Bull extreme skiing films, Amazon has a gentle but moving film called ‘Snow Day - Life, Death and Skiing,’ following a group of friends from Colorado, all well into retirement, enjoying their weekly ski club, despite some of their member’s failing health and abilty.

@sah, Dasein brilliant, also Stefan Haeusl other Makowitz movies with Bjorn Herregger equally as good, cant remember the ones where they are skiing above Darmstaettehutte, Arlberg but they are awesome......when I mountainbike up there in summer and sit and look at those gullys and drop offs I just stand in disbelief!

Also check out Lorraine Huber latest move, again excellent, fabulous skier and now also life coach (listen to her recent podcast if you get chance)......was there one day when she was shooting with Makowitz and myself and mate came over the crest on Star Wars on Albona, St Anton and dropped into the fresh line on the north face they were just about to shoot. Much shouting and we peeled off left wondering if there was an av or something only to see Hanno crouched in a snow hole with a heli-crate load of photo kit next to the shaft where he'd been for almost a week waiting for the money-shot 2 minutes behind us and we almost spoiled it!

On Amazon Prime, on the Red Bull channel you should be able to find 'La Liste' showing some fast skiing on extremely steep slopes by Jeremie Heitz. There is a preview here.

Some of the skiing is truely amazing even by normal extreme ski videos.

Not a skiing film as such, but the feature film The Last King has some excellent skiing scenes (on replica 13th Century ski equipment! Shocked ) in it. Available on Amazon Prime I think, here's the release trailer:

Not a film but definitely something nice to have on when working from home! I have been listening to the podcast 'Ascension with Simon Dumont' on Spotify. A good listen if you are interested in hearing the stories/musings of different freestyle skiers.

I've now watched them all up until the halt including most of the bonus episodes.

A mixture of good fun, interesting stories/info and a bit of ski porn.

Some of those days were looong.

Steep is on Youtube and possibly other platforms. Excellent documentary if you're interested in extreme skiing

Zabargast or something like that is also on Youtube and superb

Seb Montez made a few very good artisan films about the mountains will have to try and dig them out

Anything from Absinthe films is usually good and also provides me with some new music leads to follow through on Spotify. There is one available for free on Amazon-TurboDojo.
My other favourites include 'That's it, that's all' and 'The Art of Flight', which are both beautiful to look at., the Shane McConkey documentary https://www.redbull.com/gb-en/films/mcconkey and G.n.a.r the movie
