Skiing and snowboarding racing games

Skiing and snowboarding on film and video

Skiing has been recorded on film since at least the 1910s, but did not work its way into Hollywood features until the 1930s, when it began to be popular as a leisure activity in the United States. Snowboarding's entry onto the screen paralleled its rise to popularity in the late 1980s and early '90s.

Beginning with Warren Miller's self-financed film Deep and Light in the 1949, there emerged a tradition of documentary films about skiing, skiers, and the ski lifestyle, shot in various locations around the world and featuring the best skiers of the day. Though not distributed through normal film channels, these movies have long been screened in ski town theaters and bars and, more recently, distributed on video and DVD.
