Retallack: The movie


At long last, it's time for Tanner Hall Comeback Part Deux. On the heels of his first winter on skis since he broke both tibial plateaus two years ago, Hall's production company, Inspired Media Concepts has released the teaser for its upcoming film, "Retallack." The full movie will be available for purchase on DVD and digital download on August 1.

BC's Retallack Lodge, the subject of the new film, is a staple of the backcountry freestyle community with many skiers, including Hall, who's an investor in the cat-skiing lodge. Hall spent a great deal of time in Retallack in past years while filming for his backcountry-heavy videos "Believe" (2007) and "The Massive" (2008). He also expressed a great deal of enthusiasm for returning to Retallack at the beginning of this season, his first winter back after his 2009 double knee injury.

"I can finally get out and do my work again," Hall said shortly before returning to Retallack. "It's so awesome to finally hear those camera guys say they're ready, and then say '3-2-1,' without hesitation, and drop and ski with 100 percent confidence. It's a good feeling."

The movie "Retallack" documents that feeling alluded to by Hall in a segment that the Inspired Media site dubs "a comeback segment that won't be forgotten."
