Outdoor adventurers can get a vicarious fix through this feature documentary about big mountain skiing. The sport began in the 1970s above Chamonix, France, where, the filmmakers say, “skiers began to attempt ski descents so extreme that they appeared almost suicidal…. Now, two generations later, some of the world’s greatest skiers pursue a sport where the prize is not winning, but simply experiencing the exhilaration of skiing and exploring big, wild, remote mountains.”
