For the first time in the history of ski porn, a film from a major ski industry production company will feature more women than men - and not just in the b-roll hot tub scenes. But don't call it a Women's Ski Movie.

"This fall, MSP Films will release their annual ski movie, just like they've done for the past 26 years," writes Megan Michelson in this article for Powder Magazine, but the difference is that women will steal the show. The roster features 5 women, Angel Collinson, Michelle Parker, Elyse Saugstad, Ingrid Backstrom, and Tatum Monod; and 4 men, John Collinson, Mark Abma, Wiley Miller, and Cody Townsend. Which is a big difference from the industry standard of one or two women among a roster of a dozen or so men. 

But it's not a women's ski film a la Pretty Faces, or Shades of Winter, it's just another ski movie. So is this the end of an era for the token skier girl? Head over to Powder Magazine for the inside scoop and decide for yourself.
