(8) IMDb 7.9/10
Available in HD

"Skiing Everest" is the first documentary about the small elite fraternity of high-altitude skiers who climb the highest peaks in the world in pure Alpine style, carrying their skis and declining to use supplemental oxygen. At the top of the world, high in the Death Zone, they lock into their skis and challenge the most dangerous slopes in the world - under weather conditions that are as perilous as the thin air, hidden crevasses, and 10,000 ft. sheer faces that drop into Nepal and Tibet far below.

Seemed like an interesting buy, but basically it's a few dudes who got into climbing up/skiing down mountains, but never really learned how to put together a compelling movie or, for that matter, how to take full advantage of the visual majesty of their setting.

Mostly NOT shot in HD, lots of older standard-def footage with some HD mixed in. If you can get it for less than $5, worth a look, but won't end up a permanent part of most peoples' collection.

This is a good movie as a follow-up to the classic, The Man Who Skied Everest. It captures the dedication of those who love the challenges of skiing the highest, most remote peaks. Great photography and interviews.

I certainly don't have the Marolts' dare-devil proclivities, but I think I share their love of the freedom that skiing seems to engender, and that comes through quite brilliantly in this surprisingly thoughtful piece of filmmaking.

There are certainly a lot of shots of high-altitude skiing, both the titular Everest quest, as well as several previous high-altitude adventures in places as disparate as South America and Alaska, but this really is a more personal story than one might initially think going into it. This is certainly miles away from those old Warren Miller ski spectaculars.
