You're in for a bunch of great ski media. IMO the best work in ski media in the last 15 years I've been paying attention. When he decides he's done it'll go down as an all time great collection. Great lines, great characters, thoughtful decision making, honesty. Barne the cinementographer and main ski partner is a beast to do what he does in the fifty. And the filmmaking and story telling just keep progressing.
Yeah, unbelievable collection of films and each film / season gets better and better. It will be interesting to see if he actually ticks off all 50, although Cody started hinting in the Comstock episode that he’s a bit uncomfortable with treating that as an objective and is not necessarily thinking of completing the project as ticking off all the lines.
There’s a massive thread that Cody participates in about the project on the TGR forums that has some good analysis and additional context for each film and for the project overall.
After watching the Polar Star episode last night a podcast recorded earlier came on. This was before Comstock…
You can tell that he is mentally preparing himself for the let down if he does not complete the project. He’s only got 5 to go but from what I can tell it could take a lifetime for the stars to align for lines like Mt. Elias or Robson.
I really hopes he's able to finish the 50 but I imagine now that he has a child it has to have an effect on whether to push for those last 2-3 really difficult lines. It's a great achievement even if he stops now. The non-50 lines he skied in the Polar Star episode were just crazy.
