Poignant narratives and mesmerizing alpine backdrops tell the tale of those who devote their lives to the mountain.

“The Story” was shot on location in Mt. Everest, Nepal, the Antarctic Peninsula, Portillo, Chile and Las Leñas, Argentina. The film takes viewers on an incredible journey down sky-scraper steep first descents in Haines, Alaska and to iconic ski resorts like Mammoth Mountain, Whistler Blackcomb, Jackson Hole, Snowbird, Grand Targhee, Deer Valley and Vail. Through poignant stories and epic skiing, snowboarding, river surfing and unimaginable variations of human flight, the film explores the intangible feeling that drives those who devote their lives to the mountains.

“The film is a celebration and character study of some of the most interesting, successful, daring and charismatic people on the planet,” said The Ski Channel CEO Steve Bellamy who wrote and directed the film. “It is a piece of work that will hopefully be unifying to our industry as it speaks to all of those appreciative of ski films and mountain sport cinema. It is inspirational. It is an incredible, death-defying journey of human accomplishment that rivals anything we will see in our lifetimes.”

Such shots include Jamie Pierre hucking 255 feet off the back of Fred’s Mountain in Grand Targhee, Willie Bogner’s work in the Bond films, Bode Miller taking on a giant Hammerhead shark, and Mike Tierney jumping off a 120 foot cliff into water.
