Video killed the internet star - realvail gets into the movie biz

By Tom Boyd

January 15, 2008 —  As a kid, I was dazzled by the appearance of MTV in the early 80s, and I had about decade or more to think about the “video” revolution while my brother and I pretended to rebel and headbang to Twisted Sister in my parent’s basement.

The pace has quickened. Now everyone and their red-headed-stepchildren are posting videos. Rather than technology leaping forward a few seminal moments at a time, it’s charging forward like a pack of powderhounds on the Back Bowl’s opening day.

Which makes us, I guess, a part of the pack, because RealVail has gone video.

Given that there’s so many people with so many cameras, it’s only a matter of time until we produce the definitive “Bigfoot skiing Vail” video footage. In the meantime we’ll be posting legitimate video which helps you, me, and all of us live vicariously through our ever-more-interconnected internet connections.

We know that RealVail readers can’t always be up skiing/snowboarding on the mountain, or riding with Chris Anthony in Italy, or hiking through the White River National Forest. Good writing, and good video, however, can help us feel just a bit more like we’re out there in it, rather than inside wishing we were out in it … get it?

So, to inaugurate and propogate the video age, I’ve attached some footage taken by our Front Range blogger, Jason Sumner, at A-Basin's Montezuma Bowl opening last weekend. Enjoy!
