After being sidelined by injury, 7-time X Games medalist and 3-time Real Ski Champion, Sammy Carlson found a new set of challenges in the backcountry.

This 45 minute film follows Carlson from Michigan (where he hits one of the world’s biggest ski flying jumps, switch) to Alaska, and more. We got a sneak peek at the film and enjoyed the creative riding of natural terrain and features.

If you’re into a mix of park and mountain skiing, this film should resonate. The world premiere will take place in Portland, Ore., on November 20, followed by a worldwide tour.
