Warren Miller's Children of Winter Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

From the looks of it, Children of Winter was shot partially on both film and high definition video, and the documentary's 1080i/AVC-encoded transfer handles both sources with bunny- slope ease. There are a few soft shots scattered throughout, but the image is generally tight and crisp. Crystals of snow sparkle in the sun, wind-chapped faces show appropriately weathered skin texture, and the wide mountain vistas are true windows into a winter wonderland. While vast expanses of snow can be tricky for cinematographers—it's easy for white highlights to either get overblown or look much too dim—the picture's contrast is strong and stable, with deep blacks and a decent sense of pop and presence. Colors are strictly realistic—aside from some gritty black and white segments, there's no stylization here—and you can expect lots of bright primaries in the skiers' snowsuits. Noise levels peak expectedly during the darker scenes, but most of the time the image has a clean, uncluttered look, largely free of compression artifacts and other transfer- related troubles. Overall, Children of Winter isn't the most dazzling high definition sports documentary I've seen, but I have no real complaints.

Do note that since it was nearly impossible to capture in-motion screenshots in 1080i, all stills were captured in 720p and do not represent the full visual quality of this disc.

Warren Miller's Children of Winter Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

On the audio end, Children of Winter sports a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track that doesn't really offer any downhill sonic thrills, but proves to be quite adept when it comes to blasting the film's rock-heavy soundtrack. The music is the highlight here, from the scuffed-up, overdriven rumble of Radiohead's "Bodysnatchers," to the epic avalanche of Icelandic band Sigur Ros' signature cello bow-on-guitar strings sound. All of it is dynamic and buoyant, with well-rounded bass, a solid middle presence, and crystalline highs. Music is bled constantly into the rear speakers to fill out the soundspace, but otherwise, the surround channels don't get much action when it comes to pans and other movements, a slight disappointment considering how much snow-shredding is happening on screen. Still, many of the sound effects—whether they were captured on location or foleyed in later, I can't quite tell—are realistic and detailed, especially the various crunches, sprays, and skids of skis cutting through powder or sliding across rough icy patches. The dialogue throughout is easy to understand, and the music usually drops in volume anytime Jonny Moseley starts to speak.
