“…When you’ve lived most of your life in the Canadian tundra, you don’t see a lot of break dancers in far out ski suits…”
This Friday for our edition of Friday Video Fun here at The Ski Channel, it’s time for some ski dancing on the slopes. Breakdancing on the slopes, specifically.
Fire and Ice or Feuer und Eis is a German Ski movie released in 1986. Like many sports film movies in the 80s, there’s a useless plot with amazing fashion and cool action footage. Fire and Ice, directed by Willy Bogner, does deliver lots of freestyle skiing action. However more importantly, it showcases an amazing “music video” with sweet dance moves and strange people.
The clip below is from the English version which features the voiceover of a very talented and famous Mountain Man. Can you guess who it is?
Nothing says 80s mountain fun like watching guys dancing on the slopes with snowcats, and weird people with full white ski masks, or sorts.
