Greg Stump was an accomplished skier who starred in films by Dick Barrymore and Warren Miller. Inspired by the two legendary filmmakers, he began to make his own films in 1983. His sound tracks featured distinctive music by established artists and his narrative style was compelling.
His most well-known film — The Blizzard of Aahhhs — is credited by many with putting the sport of extreme skiing into the public consciousness. With his new retrospective The Legend of Aahhhs, Stump puts his original game changing ski film — and those of many others — in context. The film is currently screening nationally.
