About the film[]

This is a snow sports documentary film that begins with a bang, as a team of explosives experts start their day blowing away potentially lethal snow slides before skiers hit the steep slopes.

Typical of Kurt Miller's films, Ride globetrots through some of the most exotic places on Earth to capture footage of extreme snow-sporting. Among these locations are New Zealand (where a high mountain considered holy by the Maori offers some interesting downhill challenges), the North Cascades (particularly a couple of breathtaking sites accessible only by helicopter), France (where a resort harvests ski-able snow from ice-fishing), and Breckenridge, Colorado (where snowboarders bounce along the famous Breckenridge Bumps). A highlight is a ski trip in Russia, where three Americans catch a bus through a war zone to reach the top.
