20 Apr ‘Coronavirus’ LOCKDOWN Ski movie watch-list!
It all started on the bike! We should all be on skis, but due to this weird world in which we are currently living, skiing, in fact anything outside for more than an hour here in France is forbidden, thus the game of ‘Virtual cycling’ on ‘Zwift’ is my go to.
Whilst pedalling for 2hrs, or even 20hrs a day is not unheard of in my summers, on the balcony going nowhere it’s a bit dull! Thus watching movies is a must and a great way to fill the time and watch some awesome Skiing.
I grew up watching the ‘Blizzard of Ahhhs’ and dreaming of skiing like Scot Schmidt and Glenn Plake, so watching this 80’s classic again was awesome.
We then posted on the Snoworks PRO Instgram page and asked for our PRO family and followers favourites, and here are the recommended viewings up to the date we posted this blog.
So jump on the static bike, or just grab a beer, kick back and pick a Ski movie from our followers and PRO family recommendations and dream of winter, powder days and the other side of these unprecedented times.
