The Spirit of Snow

A tour of backcountry skiing's roots—from it's origins in Central Asia and Scandanavia to the 10th Mountain Division in WII to present day freeriders. Part historical, part ski film and part inspiration, Spirit of Snow takes you on a day of backcountry skiing through the eyes of early pioneers such as Dolores LaChapelle, Earl Clark, Jerry Roberts and Dick Durrance.
