Expounding upon their “no risk, no adventure” mantra, a who’s who of big-mountain skiers sing the praises of ethereal slope shredding in this hagiographic, four-decade look at the exhilaratingly perilous extreme sport. From the vertigo-inducing alpinism above France’s unbridled Chamonix resort to heli-drops along Alaska’s virginal Chugach Range, Mark Obenhaus’s cameras capture every hair-raising plummet down the powdery off-trail runs. The footage is breathtaking, the commentary breathless and the overall tone one of pure sacramental adoration. True believers will be duly dazzled.
