Sherpas Cinema created this promotional video for Whistler Blackcomb to kick off the 2011-12 season. Let's just say it's working. Yeah, it's August, but the powder skiing starting at 1:18 makes us pine for mid-winter when we can soar through glades, slashing powder and move at a rate so fast that time seems to slow down — kind of like Neo in "The Matrix," and this video. Always pushing ski cinema forward, even when the Sherpas create an ad, it's art.
