Legend of Aahhh’s – Stowe, VT Pt.2

Words: Erme Catino

Last night Skiershop and Stowe Mountain Resort’s Performing Arts Center hosted Greg Stump and a special screening of Legend of Aahhh’s. While some members of the shop were out west for the Aspen Premiere, this was my first time seeing the flick and it was well worth the wait!

I won’t let the cat out of the bag since the movie isn’t released yet, but Legends gives a historical depiction of how ski movies originated with a combination of footage and interviews from many of the industry’s greats.  Additionally we see unseen footage from the Blizzard days including some interesting behind the scene details of Plake and Schmidt.  Lastly the movie concludes with Stump and Warren Miller offering some advice for the future of ski movies.

Stump is still tweaking the movie and once it is complete, I think it will spark the next generation of ski movies much like Blizzard of Aahhh’s did in 1988.  As Greg said earlier this week, “Legends is a history of ski movies and the freestyle to freeride revolution, and it needed to be made.”

Thanks to everyone who made it out last night and to Stumpy for another great movie!

On November 26th, Greg Stump made his long awaited return to the ski world with his premiere of Legend of Aahhhs in Aspen Colorado.

Legend of Aahhhs explores the evolution of our sport from the early years in the Alps through the evolution of freeskiing as a result of the classic 1988 flick Blizzard of Aahhh’s.  Legend’s also features unseen footage and interviews, and obviously includes the legends Glen Plake, Scot Schmidt, Mike Hattrup, among others.

While I was unable to make the trip, many friends of the Skiershop crew were in attendance.  From what they recall, the movie was awesome as well as the party that ensued afterwards.  It’s been a while since Stumpy was back on the scene, and I am pretty excited to see this flick!

Big thanks to Andrew Israel for the photos – peep his blog: Aspen Spin

Jay Bowen and Micah Black cheers for the return of Greg Stump!
