There's a place surrounded by an invisible line in the snow, acrosswhich day-to-day reality cannot go; where the rules and regulations of aworld structured by parents and bosses, spouses and teachers fall to theground and melt away like a snowball dropped onto a cleared sidewalk inthe sun. In this place, fun and challenge are the only objectives; playand freedom are the only rules, so for our 58th feature film, WarrenMiller Entertainment heads back to our stomping ground ... ThePlayground.
Here, swing-sets, seesaws, and slides are replaced by towering peaks,chute-laced descents and kickers so big only kids have the courage totry them. Experience the famed ranges of British Columbia, Utah, andAlaska through the eyes of big mountain riders who see fun where othersonly see fear. Join young athletes as they tackle the slopestylecompetition at the U.S. Freeskiing Open like it was some kind of videogame come to life, where the risks are worth the rewards. And meet thelocals in places like Aspen, Colo., where an entire community dedicatesitself to making a Playground out of a town.
From the sands of Dubai and mystique of Japan, to the frigid northernreaches of Sweden, Warren Miller Entertainment follows the leadingskiers of the freeride movement-like Jon Olsson, Sean Petit, DanTreadway, Peter Olenick and others-on a journey to a special place whereanything is possible on the side of a snow covered mountain. Because,for more than half a century, we've found skiers and snowboarders inevery corner of the globe ... and we found them all in the same place... The Playground.
