  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Warren Miller's latest film gets the adrenaline going while watching the onscreen action; it's easy to imagine what was going on in the minds of those on the slopes. As the snowbirds go in search of yet higher and Higher Ground, the trip down is awe-inspiring, breathtaking, and totally addictive. Enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds and from beginners to hotdoggers, these folks all have one thing in common

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture is noisy and gritty, making it look much older than it actually is. Details are not as sharp as the format is capable of. Colors are generally well rendered, but black levels are not as deep as they could be. (Danny Richelieu)
