Winter Wars is June Bhongjan and Esthera Preda’s gift to women everywhere.Â Peepshow, as it stands, is a rebel force in snowboarding. It shows girls don’t have to be skittle-colored contest junkies to stand out. It shows that girls, while still not as good as the boys, can still be entertaining, still captivate an audience and more importantly, are out there and going for it. If Winter Wars shows us anything, it’s that a whole generation of young men need step their game up if they ever want a free pack of stickers.
OVERALL GRADE: B
NOTES: Why would a girly movie, with no super flips, helicopters or new-age bangers get a solid B? Because progression speaks loudly, and plenty of the shots in Winter Wars are more entertaining and more eye opening than the standard bullshit we see everyday. Also, because between Annie Boulanger and Desiree Melancon the bar for ladies, and even young men, has been permanently raised.
BUY OR BURN: If you’re a girl, buy a copy or quit snowboarding. If you’re a boy, it depends. There are lots of heavy slams, footage seen on Tosh.0, the best female boarding of all time and having it on the shelf might get you head.
Here’s the rundown:
Filmed with Capita, filmed with Peepshow, and both parts are dripping in classic Danger Pony action. Watch her tail grabbing skills and one hell of a frontboard on some giant metal corrugated tube.
Also filmed for Capita and had a few shots left over. Check the part for a large blunt.
Short and sweet. One shot for every situation. Sort of weird, like a sponsor me tape and then ka-fucking-boom. One hell of a banger everybody needs to see.
Marie is an oddball little girl from Michigan, and she rides more like a boy than most. Good shots for sure, a great log slide and so much evidence to say she’ll be making boys look bad very soon.
Hana Beaman & Colleen Quigley
Besides the gorgeous scenery in this shared part, the balance of these two is what brings it together. Hana gets into the backcountry and throws her body down some big natural gaps. On the flip side, Colleen proves that being a girl, a redhead and tall doesn’t mean you can’t hold your own in the streets.
She sings her own damn song and it’s so much cooler than when Tim Eddy did it. Besides that, Gabby stepped up this year and slid some big rails. Plus, her ender will shit on your sponsor me tape.
First off, this girl can ride. She is for sure pushing things in the right direction. She hits big rails, goes after double kinks and has a proper nosepress. Best part though, she’s a dirty punk chick and dating the one and only Brendan Gerard. They would probably produce the anti-Christ, so I hope they are careful.
What can I say, filming this part made Darrah Comedy Central famous. If you want to see what happened when she wasn’t moments from death, watch the movie and realize she hits way bigger shit than you.
Bryn Valaika & Gabi Viteri
Who doesn’t like watching two wild chicks get slung around to Waka Flacka? This might sound wrong, but I’m calling these two the Gap Twins. They handle the biggest streets gaps they can find and aren’t afraid to throw themselves down some big ass rails. Girls are learning style, and this is part of the proof.
Silvia Mittermuller & Celia Miller
Hot girls who hit jumps really well and with style. Do I need to continue? Fine, they can’t skate so well, and they dress like Skittles, but at the end of the day these are two chicks most men would not want to lap a park with. Why? Because they are better than you.
Robin Van Gyn
Backcountry mission that will make you want to go snowboarding. Also, she does a double and a half flip, which is dumb, but funny as hell.
Hits huge rails and nosepress’ really well. Also, a great slam section
Random ladies going for it. I’m impressed by the 50-50 360 out.
Apparently her footage is B roll, but that just doesn’t seem possible. Backcountry fans, girl fans, snowboard fans, see this part for her massive first decent, oh and the avalanche she outran.
This whole video added up to two things, Annie’s part and Desiree’s part. Combined they may have changed snowboarding. Desiree’s effort pushed girls light-years in the right direction. Her style is better than countless dudes who do this for a living. The rails are legit. The gaps are in a bunch of man movies. Desiree came through this year. She showed up some boys. And, her banger is going to put you on the floor. It’s actually that impressive.
