Blizzard of AAHH's


When I was a kid, this was the best ski movie ever made. In fact, to this day, I still consider it the queen of all ski movies. I found this on DVD on Netflix.com and have it on order. I'm anxious to see if it's as good as I remember.

I'm gonna have a Blizzard of AAHH's ski movie party at the house when it arrives. Drop me a line if you are interested.

Sounds like fun, reminds me of the Warren Miller movies I used to see at the Abravanel Hall in SLC to kick off the season in Oct/Nov of each year. How I wish I could get to some of the slopes they hit.

Hi little boy. May I come to your house to watch a movie with you? I'll bring some drinks for us (don't tell your parents.)

Dear Friendly Man from the Intenets: My mom and dad will be gone friday night. I promise not to tell them if you promise to bring candy.

Guide: "This is the couloir poubelle. It's a pitch of 47-48 degrees."

Scott Schmidt: "I'll hit it."

As I recall, Plake follows, catches an edge, and proceeds to do a cartwheel over the crevasse at the top of the apron. Or maybe I'm mixing my ski movie memories and Plake's cartwheel happened in a different film.

But I definitely remember the couloir poubelle. And imagining that I was Scott Schmidt the first time I skied the Baldy Chutes.

I'm game. Who doesn't like ski movies? I'll bring something to eat.

Plake is in this movie? With the monster mohawk? That's worth a watch right there.

Rick - I am in. Get ready for some neon ski outfits! And how cool was the Scot Schmidt Yellow North Face one piecer. I rented this last year from Netflix just for old times sake.

I remember "Hot Dog" being the ultimate ski movie when I was a kid.....

"You people... stay out of our way. You may ski on zat side OR on zat side, but stay out of zee meedle!"

"Hey, Rudy, you can kiss my a**. Not on zis side and not on zat side, but right in zee meedle!"

"Do you know what I had for breakfast this morning rookie? How do you say... I had Sonny side up, und I had Sonny side down, und I had Sonny side all ze vay around."

"What the f*** is Chinese Downhill?"

Rick, you provide the feed and I'll bring MY favorite ski movie.

UtRider said...

Sweet. If you don't have to be a good skier to attend I'd like to go.

tibiker said...

Let me know when the party is. What can I bring?

Question:
Am I the only one who thinks it's humorous that my word verification was (and I am NOT kidding) ............
"hyment"?

Aaron said...

Can knuckle draggers come? If so, count on one more creepy guy from the webernet.
