Last years Warren Miller movie "Cold Fusion" came out on DVD.  If you didn't
see it, it is well worth it.  It came out in Nov. 2001 with footage of
skiing in Afghanistan.  They almost cut after Sept 11th but decided to keep
it in.  It is very poignant, where there is a common love of riding there is
a brotherhood.
