Rage Films Available on iTunes

Back in the day, you'd get ski movies on VHS tapes. Then technology switched to DVD. Now, ski film companies are making it possible to download their flicks directly onto your computer or iPhone. Today, Rage Films releases their fall movie, Pretty Good, on iTunes for complete download. "It is the first year for ski videos to be released on iTunes in the fall which should create some buzz," says Rage Films's Daniel Norkunas.

Here's what else Dan had to say about the film: "Rage has always been about exposing the hottest up-and-coming stars and showcasing all aspects of freeskiing. This season was no different with new and veteran athletes working harder than ever to bring you the most progressive tricks from handrails to backcountry cliffs. We tactfully planned our season to camp out at select locations until everything was hit, new tricks were stomped and everyone was ready to move on."

Athletes in the film include Kyler Cooley, Ian Cosco, Dylan Natale, Mark Dvorak, Mike Mertion, LJ Strenio, Gus Kenworthy, Derek Spong, Joe Schuster, Alex Schlopy, Joss Christensen, Bene Mayr, Fabio Studer, Cody Ling, and others.

Warren Miller is arguably the most iconic figure in the world of skiing. His annual ski films are regarded as celebrations of the beginning of each ski season. It all started in 1946 when Miller and a friend moved to Sun Valley, ID, lived in the parking lot in a teardrop trailer and earned money as ski instructors. In their free time, the two would film each other in order to critique their ski techniques. In the summer, they did the same thing while surfing off the California coast. Miller showed his ski and surf films to friends and told stories and jokes while they watched. After receiving countless invitations from friends to show his films and narrate them at parties, he realized he could make his hobby his business. In 1949, he founded Warren Miller Entertainment and began his long-standing tradition of producing an annual, feature-length ski film. He toured his film around to theaters near ski towns each year, often showing it at night, so he could shoot the next year’s footage during the day. Before long, Miller was showing his films in 130 cities a year. In the late 1990s, Miller stepped aside from his hands-on production of the film, but one is still produced annually in his name. Since 1950, Warren Miller Entertainment has produced 59 feature-length ski films—and still counting.
