Anyone seen this flick? If not, you really owe it to yourself to check it out. It's billed as an avalanche education film, but its production quality rivals that of any TGR feature film. Just fantastic! It also contains some of the most incredible avalanche footage I've ever seen. I'm amazed and happy to see a film of this quality made to get out the avy message.

Seconded.

High quality production value, impressive graphics/filming, good interviews. I think this is especially good for younger folks (or older folks who are young at heart).

The filmmakers are pretty young and they lost a friend (or friends) in a slide back when they were even younger. One of the reasons they made this was to help educate younger bc travelers.

The flick is great.

Funny story, i won a helmet at the premiere in Calgary (along with my girl). My buddies couldnt get over it, since there was an incident with a helmet that lead up to this.

The Sherpas are really good guys, and have been busting their ass on this film. Its nice to see it pay off for them. That slide at Fortress years ago left a big hole in the world (especially those four families), and it is very nice to see some good come out of it.
