My favorite ski-film segment has to be the following gem from Blizzard of AAHHHs.
I'm not exactly sure why I love this segment so much. It's the bit about Telluride from the Blizzard of AAHHHs, Greg Stump's 1988 classic. It's an intoxicatingly odd blend of the Awesome (bump skiing in Club A outfits, Alpha Blondy tunes, Zudnik the Wonder Dog) and the Uncomfortably Awkward (Rasta Stevie's barely intelligible ranting). Now that I think of it, though, Rasta's ranting qualifies as awesome, too, in its own special way.
