Cho Oyu*

In September 2018, Caroline Gleich and Rob Lea went to climb and ski Cho Oyu, the sixth highest peak in the world. Get the first look at their incredible journey.

Ode to Muir*

Teton Gravity Research – Our exclusive Festival cut of Ode To Muir speaks the entire feature-length film as professional snowboarder, adventurer and founder of Protect Our Winters Jeremy Jones joins forces with two-time Olympian Elena Hight to embark on a 40-mile foot-powered expedition deep into California’s John Muir Wilderness.


DPS Cinematic – The Pehuenche people of present-day Chile speak Mapudungun: ‘the language of the land.’ This land, their universe, is known as Wallmapu. Two skiers enter, into a breathtaking creation of ancient Araucaria trees, looming volcanoes, and windblown snow.

I Am Here

Michael and David Hanson – “My parents never even thought about climbing a mountain.” Yesenia grew up living in a small farmer’s cabin in the apple orchards of Oregon’s Hood River Valley. Watch Yesi’s journey to climb Mount St. Helens, pursue her own American dream, and inspire Latinx outdoor enthusiasts everywhere.

The Far Out Ones: Kai Jones

Teton Gravity Research – Last season 11-year-old freeskier Kai Jones had a better Spring Break than you. When the snow kept falling in Jackson Hole, he went on a rampage – tearing up the biggest, baddest terrain at his home mountain with Teton Gravity.


Ursa Major TV – Blue is a testament to the inherent creativity, innovation and strength forged in women of the north. In it we present a spectacle of winter innovation—the icy playground providing a visual journey as never seen before by bike.

Surfer Dan

Camp4 Collective – Beyond the tale of his frosted beard, this is a story about Dan Schetter’s passion for surfing and how he credits the sport to saving his life.
