Warren Miller's 58th feature film is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. Travel to Colorado, Alaska, British Columbia, Sweden, Japan and even the desert dunes of Dubai in search of something to impress the powder junkies who have seen it all. Find a new crop of treacherous descents reachable only by air. They tag along with fearless cliff jumpers and nimble snowboarders. They outrun avalanches and hang with whoever's currently making a name shredding the slopes. And of course, everything is set to a high-voltage soundtrack pumped full of bands like Radio Citizen, Maroon 5, Beastie Boys and Queens of the Stone Age.

Less expected, but successfully done, are some quieter moments including a profile of Bode Miller in an ankle-deep portrait of the controversial downhill racer. Scenes from a visit to Japan amaze not with daredevil stunts but with shimmering visuals that gave the effect of skiing inside of Japanese painting. Warren Miller's voice is heard in a few vintage snippets, but for the most part it's Jonny Moseley's ski-dude narration that sets the tone. This fits well with a goofy segment celebrating Brigham Young University's makeshift "water weenie" toboggan and is suited to describe Dubai, where a massive indoor ski resort is brought to the screen with mind blowing results.
