Down-Hill Skiing 1: Powder Hound

Down-Hill Skiing  1: Powder Hound

Grand Prize -NY Intl. Ski Film Festival
Downhill skiing in remote mountain locations requires great resolve, courage, ability, and self-reliance. Many who choose this avocation do so out of love of nature and challenge, though few expect it to lead to romance. In this whimsical story of a reclusive downhill skier whose life is changed forever by an intruder, the viewer is treated to spectacular mountain scenery and expert, daring, and unusual downhill skiing. The story takes place in Chamonix, France, where a downhill skier known as "Powder Hound" has taken up solitary residence near the mountain peak. From this vantage point he thrives on freshly fallen mountain snow, which he shares with no one. He is the embodiment of freedom and spirit as he skis down mountains, over hills, and through woodlands, sometimes leaning back almost parallel to the ground, riding on only the rear half of his skis. His life becomes complicated by the arrival of an intruder, who sets up her own tent 20 feet from his. Playful antics during a fierce snowstorm backfire, and Powder Hound finds himself in a frantic search for his missing intruder. The story ends with Powder Hound and the intruder performing a ski ballet down a majestic mountainside, presumably to live happily ever after. 95/12DE IJSCA 15 min.
