You've heard of it, or maybe you haven't.

Although skiers and boarders alike will enjoy this movie, it was made from a telemark skier's perspective. This flick was never inteneded for the masses. It was edited for a universal, small, ecsoteric group of ski town residents.

This movie may shock you, or make you feel uneasy. Kids - don't watch it with your parents, and teachers - don't show it to your gym classes as you will be fired from the school district.

Don't be a sucker and pay $10 bucks to see a Warren Miller commercial when you can buy Ski Bummin' for $20, which includes shipping. Ski Bummin' is definately not some candy-ass coated, Vail/Nissan sponsored ski film. It is, to the contrary, a true-to-life, rough-edged depiction of the unglamorous lifestyles of real, hard-core ski bums (sponsored by mom and Visa).

In this movie we follow the unique lifestyles of ski bums in Crested Butte, CO during the winter season of '96-'97 (which happened to be an epic winter). Also featured are the 1997 U.S. Extreme Skiing Championships, and the only-one-of-its-kind Al Johnson Uphill/Downhill Telemark Race.

Ski Bummin' has received Honorable Mentions from the Banff Festival of Mountain Films and the Breckenridge Film Festival, and has been hailed as a ski town cult classic by Siskel & Ebert. (what?)
