SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING

The most ridiculous line ever: Xavier de la Rue and Andreas Fransson

Jordan Manley's Video: La Grave: A Skier's Journey

Another one from Jordan Manley: Baffin Island

Amazing snowboarding video: Tight Places

Another amazing snowboarding video: A Tiny Day

Not so amazing: Famous snowboarder tries his hand at ski-mountaineering
(and gets himself in a bit of trouble)

Okay, more self-deprecating humor: The Dangler



CLIMBING 

Cool video featuring yours truly (a bit lengthy): Wilderness First Responder
(Veteran's Day Weekend, November, 2011, Zion National Park, Utah)

A bit more serious: Rescue/Recovery on the Matterhorn

High elevation alpine climbing: Cold



BIKING

If you like mountain biking, watch this: Radwanderung

And this: Kranked REVOLVE (trailer)

More: Life Cycles (trailer)

Here is one shot by my friend Bill Winters, exclusively with a DSLR camera: Zerode Bikes: Elinor Wesner

And this one, with the sensational rider Danny Macaskill, is ridiculous: Industrial Revolutions



SURFING

This video celebrates surfing and photography (and living a creative life): Dark Side of the Lens

More on surfing, sent to me by my good friend Patrick Grady in Hawaii, and shot by another, North Shore local Leah Dawson: Peanut Butter




MOVIES AND SHORT DOCUMENTARIES:


Super Cool Movie, This Is My Winter:




Another really cool movie, based on the life of a Canadian mountain guide, A Life Ascending

Possibly the best action sport documentary of all time: STEEP (trailer)

STEEP: New York Times movie review

Okay, this one's pretty good too: Riding Giants (trailer)

And this one's not bad either: Step Into the Liquid (trailer)

Alone on the Wall, Alex Honnold, possibly the world's best climber

Now I'm no fisherman, but you have to appreciate the passion: Scott Behind The Scenes

Ditto with whitewater kayaking: Wild Water (trailer)

And, if you get a chance, you've got to watch this movie! Cold (trailer)
