Paradise Waits thrills the audience with its exciting ski jumps and ‘80s pop music.
Clocking in at a fast 7 minutes, Paradise Waits landed some impressive stunts and was a visual treat for the audience to enjoy while munching on their popcorn. Coming in at number five on the scheduled list of films I saw that night at the BANFF Mountain Film Festival in St. Louis, Paradise Waits hurdles its viewers through twists and turns down some of Alaska’s biggest mountains.
The short film follows freeskier Tim Durtschi, as he guides down the tram laps at Jackson Hole while listening to fun ‘80s pop music. It’s funny and relieving to see him poke fun at other skier’s while gliding down the Jackson Hole. Paradise Waits also follows big mountain skier Angel Collinson, as she rips up some of the Alaskan lines. It's a dazzlingly display of snow skiing that shows us why winter is a time to celebrate.
