Clips of the Week: West Virginia Wilderness, River Running, and Skiing

16 Aug 13

Our favorite outdoor web videos from around the internet from the week that was:

1. Wild, Wonderful West Virginia Wilderness

BRO contributor John Bryant Baker sent us this little ode the the Wilderness of West Virginia including gorgeous shots of the Gauley and New river gorges. Great video with an equally great message: get out and experience all this great country has to offer.

2. Getting the Goods on the Chattooga

This is a great little POV of running the Chattooga River from Colin Hunt. Colin apparently loves the kayaking equivalent of the wheelie, and for good reason: it looks like fun. The water also looks choice and the weather perfect. Makes for a great video experience.

3. Everyone’s Hometown

Back to West Virginia as a videographer from Santa Barbara, California travels to Thomas for their annual Mountaineer Days, and likes what he finds in this little mountain town. You can vote for Thomas’s sister city Davis, WV in our Best Mountain Towns Reader Poll, so go ahead and do that. Who’s ready for winter?

4. Valhalla

We’ll end with the latest trailer for the upcoming Sweetgrass Productions ski movie titled Valhalla. This movie is getting major attention because it’s trippy as hell and is the latest entry in what appears to be a trend in the ski film industry of moving away from straight skiing shots towards….well, something else. Sweetgrass leads the way in this department along with Sherpa Cinemas.
