Porn in Vail

Tom Boyd

For several years Vail has been home to a wild rumor, a whispered story that has circulated among locals and visitors alike. It has all the markings of a fabricated urban myth, a story concocted by a few snowboarders and circulated through the gossip mills which surely magnified and distorted the truth.But The Vail Trail’s team coverage has discovered the naked truth: a pornographic movie was filmed in Vail. And yes, there is a scene on the Eagle-Bahn Gondola in Vail, and another scene filmed in one of the apartments above you guessed it Beaver Liquors in Avon.”It’s absolutely hilarious,” says Adam Bensinger, who lives in the Buck Creek Plaza building where one scene was filmed. “I heard about it since I came out here. You hear about the gondola and it’s pretty hilarious.”Beaver Liquors owner Rick Cuny says he hasn’t seen the film and didn’t know his building had earned cinematic fame.”What I’ve been told is that it’s very bad quality with very ugly girls and I’m glad they didn’t put Beaver Liquors in it,” says Cuny.Although the film has a local setting, it doesn’t have any local stars. The male role is played by someone with a Speedo tan definitely not earned in Colorado sunshine. And the substandard female talent is clearly unschooled in mountain ways (don’t they know about the dangers of sunburn!). The ski and snowboard gear seems to hail from the mid-’90s, and reports from anonymous sources indicate the movie was made circa 1996 or ’97.But the word on the street is that the quality of the film is not so good. Still, it’s more than just an amateur home movie. Bad lighting, terrible audio and dull writing (even for a pornography film) define the movie, which bears the oh-so-charming title of C______ Down the Mountain (fill in the blanks at your own discretion).And for those on the lookout for local appearances, don’t hold your breath. There is at least one local who makes a cameo appearance at the end of the flick, but he doesn’t take part in the “action,” and he’s not involved in any of the racy scenes.There are, however, some pretty impressive snowboarding scenes to finish off the flick. Filmed somewhere outside of Vail, the snowboard scenes show some decent riders making their way through sketchy couloirs and down rocky steeps. The snowboard scenes are letterboxed and the background shows some not-meant-for-minors footage.Finding a copy of the film shouldn’t be a problem for those who aren’t too shy to ask around. But don’t bother heading to your local video store. The people involved in the making of the film aren’t talking, and no one seems to know who’s behind the camera or who put the money up to make the movie. But if you hear the rumors on the street, rest assured: they’re all true.For more information, e-mail Tom Boyd at tboyd@vailtrail.com.
