Hunter Wood has quietly become one of the best big-mountain skiers in the world, but one of North America’s most dangerous peaks has towered over everything he has done—the Grand. Now in his mid-thirties, with dead-end jobs and a disappointed father, he feels pressure to leave the mountains to “make some money”. But before Hunter can move on he needs to test his abilities on the Grand. After witnessing two friends narrowly escape death – one is caught in an avalanche and the other falls into a crevasse – he nearly abandons his attempt. But the pull of the mountains is strong. Will Hunter be able to ski the Grand? And if he succeeds, will he be able to leave his beloved mountains?
