On the heels of last week’s Ski Video Sunday, Red Bull has dropped a 45-minute documentary about speedflying (or speedriding, as they call it) in the Alaska Range. Featuring world-class skiiers Filippo Fabbi and Jon DeVore, “The Unrideables: Alaska Range” delves into the psychology of these daredevils. The video also takes viewers beyond the stunning vistas and thrilling POV shots which I showcased last week, pointing out the preparation and poise which these athletes must demonstrate when they venture into the realm of skiing untouched peaks.
You can view the whole video on Red Bull’s official website: “The Unrideables: Alaska Range.”
UNFORTUNATELY the full video is no longer available on Red Bull’s website. They are now asking $13 for the film on iTunes. The film is a great adventure film/ ski film, but ultimately nothing that breaks out of what is typical for the genre. I would advise you to pass on purchasing the film unless you are way into extreme sports or these sorts of films.
