The time to dust off the skis and snowboards is just around the corner (find Utah's opening dates here), but first we need to hop aboard the winter stoke train by watching some 2022 ski and snowboard movie premieres. You'll never be as hyped about tricks you'll probably never try and lines you'll probably never ski as you are right after watching the pros effortlessly throw down in immaculate conditions for supremely talented filmmakers, but that's what preseason excitement is all about!
Respect the time-honored tradition of getting outrageously stoked for winter while still having to wait several agonizing weeks before skiing and snowboarding are feasible. Here is the list of movie premieres worth checking out this fall.
Teton Gravity Research "Magic Hour"

Magic Hour is not so much a particular time a day as a culmination of powerful moments in some of the most beautiful, wild places on the planet. For 27 years, Teton Gravity Research has been searching for the right place with the right crew at the perfect time to experience life at its fullest. Between the thrill of the hunt and the peace of floating down a mountain, the sum of our experiences becoming greater than its parts is what we seek. If you ask us, our annual snow film Magic Hour is just that. More Information
