The best ski movie I have ever seen. No silly soundtracks, no inane interviews - just amazing skiing and a wonderful mini history of the extreme, told by some of the people involved. The sections in Chamonix and Alaska are breathtaking.

First of all, I bought the DVD because of the Greg Stump film "Blizzard of Aahhhs." I used to own another Greg Stump film, "Maltese Flamingo," on VHS. Not having a video player these days, I decided to try and acquire a copy on DVD. This proved impossible, but an internet search for the "Maltese Flamingo" soundtrack led me to the "Blizzard of Aahhhs" which, because it was bundled with "Steep," represented, I felt, absolutely brilliant value for money!
"Steep" is an astounding documentary, made nearly twenty years after the "Blizzard of Aahhhs." Whilst it is also a film about extreme skiing, it focuses more on the people involved rather than the skiing itself. That is not to say it there is no action. The filming techniques employed give, at times, astonishing viewing angles and the photography is superb - frequently breathtaking. Co-incidentally, the documentary features interviews with some of the participants in the "Blizzard of Aahhhs" - the skiers Glen Plake and Mike Hattrupp and the filmmaker, Greg Stump, himself.
Some might regard "Blizzard of Aahhhs" as a movie of its time - that is for those individuals to decide for themselves. In the documentary "Steep," the "Blizzard of Aahhhs" is described as "the most influential American ski film of all time." For me it evoked memories of a previous era. The soundtrack, particularly, enhances the images of the extreme skiing captured on film. Even my daughters, who were not even born at the time this film was made, were captivated by the images (and even by some of the soundtrack). For those of us who were around at that time, this is another wonderful reminder of the astonishing enjoyment to be had from merely cruising the European snowfields.

Format: DVD
I have often stared up, and occasionally down, some pretty awesome slopes in the Alps. It is pretty hairy just being on the edge, but the thought of throwing yourself down them on just a pair of skis simply beggars belief. The thought came to me that you must either have supreme confidence in your ability, or an almost insane disregard for your own safety to undertake such a venture. But of course the world is full of such adrenalin junkies, the most extreme of which continually push the boundaries of what is achievable.

These types are personified by Bill Briggs, who was the first man to undertake such a venture when he decided to ski down the Grand Teton in the early seventies. No one believed him until they saw his ski tracks impossibly weaving down the mountain. This tradition was followed by others who are interviewed in this documentary. There is some incredible accompanying footage of their exploits. One daredevil skiing straight off the Col Du Midi, a place I know quite well. But as with all sports, someone sets new standards of excellence, like a Bob Beamon or a Usain Bolt, but sooner or later some freak of nature will come along and rewrite the records. Such is the case with extreme skiing as this film demonstrates. We see the likes of Doug Coombs taking on the immense pristine Alaskan mountains, the home of the extreme skiing world championships. We see other enthusiasts pushing the limits in my favourite resort Chamonix, home of the big ones.

When in Norway some years ago I spoke to my glacier guide who was an oldish guy in his sixties. He informed me that he did an awful lot of skiing in the winter. When I mentioned there did not seem to be many lifts in the area, he laughed and informed me you simply climbed a mountain and skied down it.

Steep is a must see for any Big Mountain ski fans!
I found it utterly inspiring, from the amazing camera work to the unbelievable level of skiing, it made my hair stand on end from start to finish.

Plus Blizzard of Aahhhs is a great little extra, I loved watching Glen Plake rip on those massive old 2.3m tooth picks!!

RIP Shane McConkey

Addictive. Amazing movie if you are into backcountry skiing. I would have loved more action filming than interviews with the most noteworthy extreme skiers in the world but still very engaging movie.

Steep is an excellent documentary story about various individuals and their quest for the perfect big mountain experience. It's got the usual array of jaw-dropping shots of skiers dropping down mountain sides that would reduce the average skier to tears and visually it's pretty spectacular. What makes this film different to most that have come before is the quality of the commentary and interviews. It feels like you're going on a journey with the people involved. Some of it's a history lesson, some of it's about where they are now and some of it's pretty tragic, but it's always interesting to follow.

If you're thing is skiing/snowboarding you'll not want to miss it. But be warned, you'll probably be reaching for a brochure and booking a holiday as soon as you get to the final credits because you WILL want to be there!!

The version I got included the film "Blizzard of Aahhhs" on a second DVD. This is THE classic off-piste film that really put this type of film on the map. If you haven't seen it you'll want to. It's showing it's age these days, but it's a very worthwhile addition and is a nice addition to the package. Look out for some seriously retro outfits....
