Cross-Country Skiing 5: Race Day

Cross-Country Skiing  5: Race Day

Best "Non-Climbing" Doc -Telluride Mountainfilm Festival
This classic program includes narration-free footage from a World Cross Country Ski Championship at Chamonix, France, and Lahti, Finland. Through this dramatic, colorful, and compelling montage, we see the determination in the racers' faces as they prepare themselves and their equipment for the big day of racing. We can almost feel their tension at the starting line, waiting amidst the cheering stadium crowd for the countdown to finish or the starting gun to fire. The racers' strength, stamina, and skill become apparent as they navigate the circuitous mid-course forest trails. We watch the racers strain to "take the hill" and then marvel at their beauty and grace as they glide down the other side. Finally, we observe the powerful double-poling stride and glide to the finish line, where each racer enjoys not only a hot cup of coffee and a warm blanket, but also the tranquility and pride that accompany personal triumph and accomplishment. 95/12DE IJSCA 15 min.
