Down-Hill Skiing 2: Return of Powder Hound

Down-Hill Skiing  2: Return of Powder Hound

Downhill skiing in remote locations offers a degree of challenge and sheer exhilaration rarely found in other sports. Those who have conquered the French Alps in the past are forever lured by its pristine powder snow and majestically diverse terrain. In this sequel to Powder Hound, we see that even after fifteen years of self-imposed exile from downhill skiing, the lure of the Alps finally overcomes Powder Hound as he makes a triumphant return to the sport. It takes his two sons to break him from his spell of "drop-out skier syndrome" by literally lighting a fire under his seat. He returns to the sport with even greater determination, employing unorthodox training techniques to strengthen his muscles and his confidence. He then embarks on a solitary "ski crusade" throughout the French Alps, where he displays a dazzling array of control, balance, speed, agility, perseverance, and stamina. He performs 360-degree jumps, splits, and "ski wheelies," while rarely touching his ski poles to the ground. It is a time to rejoice for the residents of the French Alps, who realize that the legendary Powder Hound has returned, never to abandon skiing again. 95/12DE IJSCA 20 min.
