Director and Ski Channel CEO Steve Bellamy has just been named as this year’s Far West Ski Association (FWSA) Warren Miller Modern Media Award recipient for The Ski Channel’s most recent film, Winter!
As this film toured the country, it’s has supported many community outreach programs.
Steve Bellamy, Ski Channel CEO, and Richard Tavtigian, Ski Channel Film Producer, and the entire Ski Channel production crew did an outstanding job capturing the essence of what it is like to walk in the shoes of each athlete who risk their lives in the mountains of the world enjoying what they do best.
Steve Bellamy wrote and directed the film as it was shot in over 100 locations world wide and took one year to film. The film segments on the 10th Mountain Division veterans many of which started ski resorts and industry located all across America after WWII reminds us that skiing’s roots are deeper than the recreational focus that it has today. The history lesson combined with the high thrilled footage of skiers pushing the edge of possibility makes this film a “fresh track”
This film also serves to honor the late Sarah Burke, who died this past winter due to a ski injury, and her marriage to the love of her life, Rory. Sarah and her husband Rory Bushfield were featured in The Ski Channel’s second documentary film project, “Winter“. Among a cast comprised of a “who’s who” in action sports, these two stood out prominently amongst the rest. Not just because they are the best looking couple in the ski industry, but because Rory and Sarah are wonderful human beings. Attendies at the Los Angeles World Premiere in December were captivated by the couple’s love on screen — these two young skiers are even more beautiful inside than out.
