Head For The Hills Tour Kicked Off

Filmed exclusively in the Eastern U.S. and Canada, the Meatheads' newest feature, Head For The Hills Tour was kicked off at University of Vermont's CC Theater on September 26th. The Film was premiered at the The International Freeskiing Film Festival in Montreal: "The huge buzz that was in the air for the next film became a full on roar as Head For The Hills by east coast legends Meathead Films took to the screen. No one shows the beauty, vibe and rawness of the east coast like the Meatheads, and this year they continued what they’re known best for with their unique brand of story telling, and it was without a doubt their best work to date".
The Film features many familiar New England ski resorts, cat skiing in the Chic Choc Mountains of Quebec, and more. Fresh backcountry footage is coupled with innovative park and urban skiing, which includes the 3rd annual Heat Harvest Superpark at nearby Sunday River ski resort in Maine.
Filmed in High Definition, 16mm, and Super 8mm film formats, Head For The Hills is truly a unique mix of visual mediums.
Based in Burlington, VT, the action sports capital of Eastern North America, Meathead Films is dedicated to creating innovative movies based exclusively in the East. The Northeastern United States and Canada mountains and talented athletes of the East are a resource virtually untapped by the ski movie industry.
The Head For The Hills DVD will be available for purchase that evening and will also be distributed in the U.S., Canada, Japan, and the U.K. by both Ally Video and Eastern Mountain Sports.
