Please note

Sorry, we aren't able to make images or video for this item available to the public online.

Take three of the world’s best stunt skiers - cliff-jumper Scot Schmidt, extreme skier - Bad boy Glen Plake, and precision skier Mike Hattrup … transport them to the finest steep terrain in the world - from Switzerland to France’s Chamonix Valley to California’s awe inspiring Squaw Valley … engage some slick cameramen … set the results to an original soundtrack ranging from hot rap to Euro-funk, including Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Propaganda and ACT … and what do you have? “The Blizzard of AAHHH’s” - a vividly photographed, tightly edited rock video movie. Ever bolder jumps, twists, straight shots through chutes, games of chicken with crevasses and other activities designed to make insurance company rate-setters squeal with delight! Rated: G
