HBO's documentary "The Crash Reel" tells the story of snowboarder Kevin Pearce's horrific crash on a practice run in preparation for the 2010 Olympics and his struggle to recover from the Tramautic Brain Injury he suffered. This is a moving story of how family, friends and community come together to help a fallen star in great need, and how the wounded star adapts, changes his perspective on life and returns the favor. It's more than an action sports film. I give it 10 stars. Another RadXSports video with Lauren Teton from Snowboard Secrets doing the interview at the HBO Studios in New York.

"The Crash Reel" is a new documentary about pro-snowboarders Kevin Pearce, directed by Lucy Walker, and you will meet both of them in this clip, and see a couple of clips of the movie. "The Crash Reel" was the opening night movie at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, and is "killing it" on the Film Festival Circuit. Shaun White, who was the man for Pearce to beat, (and Kevin did), shares commentary. The Pearce family appears and adds the love that keeps Kevin going through his 3 year and continuing rehabilitation from TBI - Traumatic Brain Injury. This movie is not to be missed, it brings the story of a snowboarder to the mainstream public, as well as to the snowboarders of the world. This video by Lauren Traub Teton, for SnowboardSecrets.TV.

Climate Change Will Deal Huge Financial Blow to $12.2 Billion Ski and Snowmobile Industry; Consequences for CA, CO, ME, MT,  NH, NM, NY, OR, PA, UT, VT and WA to be Highlighted.

December 6, 2012 -WASHINGTON, D.C. -   A new analysis conducted for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Protect Our Winters (POW) will detail the devastating economic impact that climate change could have on the U.S. winter tourism industry. The analysis finds that the $12.2 billion ski and snowmobile industry is dependent on heavy and predictable snowfall, and changes in the winter season snowfall have already been felt across the nation and are likely to become even more pronounced with climate change.

The NRDC/POW analysis covers all 38 states involved in the U.S. ski and snowmobile winter tourism industry.  During the Thursday news event, experts will discuss the consequences nationwide and for California, Colorado, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Vermont and Washington state. 

The study aims to help policy makers understand both the ski and snowmobile industry's current economic scale and the potential economic impacts that climate change may cause, as well as the effects the industry is already feeling from reduced snowpack and rising winter temperatures over the last decade. Just this past ski season, 50 percent of ski resorts opened late and 48 percent closed early with every region experiencing a decrease in the days of operation. Winter sports resorts are not the only ones affected by this shift; a reduced and shortened winter season will also hurt the secondary related industries of lodging, restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores and entertainment.
