..., a smart instructional video, and the comprehensive encyclopedia Tao of Skiing, into one eXCiting high quality product; Awesome x-c ski video - Cross Country Canada --Athletes and Coaches alike

packs an adrenaline primed movie on biathlon and cross-country skiing, a smart instructional video, and the comprehensive encyclopedia Tao of Skiing, into one eXCiting high quality product; Finalist at the Banff Mountain Film Festival and chosen by Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival in ;Best of the Fest; tour. Awesome x-c ski video - Cross Country Canada High Velocity opens with a Bond/Matrix-like biathlon segment with some incredible helicopter shots, providing some never before seen viewpoints on cross-country skiing. It's a very stylized production, showing off the strong artistic talents of McMahon and Meloche. From there, they switch to a very scenic ;off the beaten path; skiing segment. Again, some wonderful helicopter shots during the peak of fall foliage really punctuate the coverage. A third segment features Subaru Factory Team skiers on beautiful mountain trails. Some incredible boot level and ski pole ; shots really make you feel like you're on the snow with them! The video wraps up with a preview to the 2002 Winter Olympics by featuring some racing from Soldier Hollow last season. Jaw dropping impressive classical skiing is the highlight to this piece -- you literally can't believe how fast some of the elite skiers are sprinting up steep hills. Sadly, as this segment winds down you realize the actual television coverage this winter won't even come close to this level of excitement. Overall, another great production from David McMahon and Lise Meloche. - Bruce Adelsman, skinnyski.com (reviewed VHS version) New super charged Biathlon / X-C Ski video - Biathlon Canada ;Technically, it's excellent.

While skiing converts will love it, it's sure to draw others to the sport; - Lynne Bermel, Ranked 3rd overall Ironman Triathlon World Cup Action; special effects; artistic, great script; actors .... Sounds like a Hollywood film, but those are what describe xczone s newest actionpacked X-country skiing movie High Velocity. There is no other like it; - Sharon Donnelly, Olympian, PanAm Gold Medalist Triathlon Another group that has been setting new trends in the sport is the combo of David McMahon and Lise Meloche with their new video called High Velocity . This is the second video they have produced and it is definitely changing the rules as to how XC ski vids should be made. This isn t your dinky little XC ski video that shows you what good technique should look like in a wide open field, with lots of slow motion analyse this shots. With some good tunes and great action shots, I would compare High Velocity to an extreme skiing video version of Cross Country skiing.
