Cross-Country Skiing 7: Marathon Skiing Symphony

Cross-Country Skiing  7: Marathon Skiing Symphony

Worldloppet Ski Marathons are held in villages and on high plateaus in Europe, Canada, and the U.S. Surrounded by folklore and a country fair atmosphere, crack international racers together with thousands of men and women tourist skiers of all ages, race on courses that are 42 to 90 kilometers long. The champions are in it for the prestigious title of "world's greatest marathoner"; while the tourists strive to surpass themselves. In this non-narrated celebration of the grace, energy, and melody of cross-country ski racing, producer Harvey Edwards shows us the pure beauty of human determination and accomplishment. At race time, each cross country ski marathoner, though often surrounded by a thousand or more fellow skiers, is essentially alone in the pursuit of personal excellence. Through a montage of race footage from the Austrian Dolomitenlauf, the Italian Marcialonga, the American Birkebeiner, the French Transjurasienne, and the Swedish Vasaloppet, Edwards makes us envy the ski marathoner's freedom and fulfillment. We yearn to glide among the trees and alongside the winter streams on our skis, and to cross the finish line to fanfare, celebration, and most importantly, inner peace. 95/12DE IJSCA 20 min.
