Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 01/01/2008
"What STEEP does really well...is capture the attraction of the sport and its lifestyle..."
Los Angeles Times - 12/21/2007
"STEEP is one of those rare endeavors able to touch on the human condition without neglecting the film's true star: big-mountain skiing."
Empire - 10/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "If you're a fan of 'extreme skiing,' this film is your Holy Grail....You'll be rewarded with a man skiing, Bond-style, off the edge of a cliff before parachuting down."

Product Description:

Narrated by SIX FEET UNDER's Peter Krause, STEEP is an exciting examination of the dangerous sport of extreme skiing. The film was written and directed by Mark Obenhaus, a journalism veteran who has spent more than 30 years working on incisive television documentaries (including at ABC News with Peter Jennings, to whom the film is dedicated), STEEP follows the exploits of a dozen current and former adventure skiers who have risked their lives to ski down remote mountains where no one has skied before. They take helicopters and climb mountains to reach the points at which they head downhill, with no signs or nicely carved paths to lead them on their way. They never know when they're going to come across a tree, a rock, or even a cliff as they slice down breathtaking vistas. Obenhaus, who also serves as one of the executive producers of the film, captures amazing runs in British Columbia, France, Iceland, Wyoming, and Alaska, featuring such athletes as Doug Coombs, Chris Davenport, Ingrid Backstrom, Shane McConkey, Andrew McLean, and Seth Morrison. Older legends such as Anselme Baud, Bill Briggs, and Stefano De Benedetti discuss the origins of the sport and are seen in archival footage alongside the newer generation, who is constantly trying to top itself by attempting the seemingly impossible. Influenced by the films of Warren Miller and THE BLIZZARD OF AAHHH'S, STEEP follows these thrillseekers who live for danger, including one of them who actually dies doing the thing he loved best. Anton Sanko's score propels the remarkable action, along with songs by Quien es, BOOM!, and Low.
