Why do you ski? The answers are as varied as the snowflakes that make up each winter. Over the course of a season, what we ski and how we ski it defines our responses, each as personal and as unique as we are.
Stormriders explores the reasons we ski from the perspective of one dedicated skier over the course of a single winter. Presented by Outdoor Research and Outerlocal, directed and produced by KGB Productions, and filmed on location in Jackson Hole, the series chronicles a skier’s passion deep in the heart of the mountains, where the search begins anew every year.
In Season 1, Stormriders follows climber and skier Christian Beckwith. A longtime alpinist, Beckwith’s passion for ski mountaineering grows with each passing winter, but increasing responsibilities on the homefront coupled with the advance of time beg a simple question: Is it worth it?
