That’s exactly what these three skiers do in “Stepping Out.” Skiing the Alaska Range for the first time, they tackle new challenges in both their discipline and their capacity for teamwork.

One says it best: “This trip wasn’t perfect [by] any means — but that’s, like, true of every trip. You never really know what you’re going to get.”
