Downhill Racer (1969)

Robert Redford plays an arrogant pro downhill ski racer. Gene Hackman plays his coach. Brutally great and scary 1st-person downhill ski action. Possibly the best competitive skiing flick out there, and a really good character study. Like many late 60's, early 70's flicks, this one takes its time and shows rather than tells.
