Ski Movie Review – Weight
As we enter the fall season and the temperatures begin to drop, ski movies begin to premier across the world in order to create more excitement for the upcoming season. Last night I had the opportunity to watch Stept Productions new movie “Weight”, and if you are a fan of urban skiing then this movie is an absolute must have for you.
Many people don’t understand why someone would want to leave a perfectly good resort and head out onto the streets to pursue skiing. I feel that Nick Martini does a good job in describing the incentive to why they decide to spend a good part of their winter in the city. “Just like a big mountain skier goes into the back country to truly test their skills, a park skier heads to the streets.” Urban skiing is different from simply skiing in a park because you are in an urban environment that was not designed for skiing and normally involves concrete, stairs, and metal that is a lot less forgiving then falling on snow. The possibilities of urban features are endless and it is up to you to take the city and make it your own playground in whatever way you can imagine.
The Stept crew takes urban to a whole new level as they hit some of the most creative features to date with mind blowing tricks that will leave you sitting with your jaw-dropped in awe. Not only does their new movie showcase the craziest urban I have ever seen, but it is also put together really well and edited to perfection. Furthermore, Stept did a good job in providing a well-rounded soundtrack that compliments the skiing very nicely. Some notable performances include Clayton Villa, Sean Jordan, Parker White, Shea Flynn, and Nick Martini. Check out their teaser and decide if this movie is something you want to add to your collection.
