“Ledgend Of Ahhh’s” Theatrical Trailer
If you loved Greg Stump’s movie “Blizzard Of Aahh’s”, which has been voted number one ski film of all time by the Ski Channel and Skiing Magazine, then you’ll also love the “Legend Of Aahhh’s”. 24 years on, Greg Stump has finally made a follow up to his legendary 1988 movie “Blizzard of Ahhh’s”.
Glen Peak’s and Scot Schmidt’s appearance in NBC’s Today Show following the release of “Blizzard of Ahhh’s” (see movie trailer above) is largely credited with transforming skiing into a pop culture ,and the birth of the extreme ski movement.
In his new movie “Legend of Ahhh’s”, Greg pursues and captures the culprits behind the development of skiing and ski films. He explores the evolution and history of skiing from 1930’s Germany through to modern day skiers, whose athletic and ariel prowess leave today’s viewers in awe. Previously unseen footage and interviews give a unique peek into the amazing moment that changed an entire genre of film.
Styled in a semi-autobiographical fashion, the film explores the influence that ski film has had on big mountain skiing and follows film makers from Otto Lang, John Jay, Warren Miller through to young film makers, such as TGR and Matchstick.
Telluride features prominently in the “Legend of Ahhh’s” and with one of a kind interviews with Warren Miller, Dick Barrymore, Otto Lang, John Jay, Klaus Obermeyer, and the explosive skiing from ledgends such as Scot Schmidt, Glen Peake, Mike Hattrup, Lynne Wieland and many more, this makes for a fascinating and at times hilarious trip down the memory lane of skiing.
I had the priviledge of attending the national premier of the “Legend of Ahhh’s” in Telluride in February this year, and the film is now finally being shown at selective venues around the States. More viewings are being added as we speak. Check out the schedule at http://legendofaahhhsmovie.com/
If you love skiing, you’ll love this movie. And if you’ve been to Telluride, you’ll love it even more! You might even recognise some of the more colourful characters who still hang out in Telluride 🙂
