From childhood, Kevin Fogolin dreamed of living and working in the mountains. After breaking the shackles of small-town expectations, the dream comes crashing down in a helicopter avalanche bombing mission gone horribly wrong. In the aftermath, Kevin and his childhood friend and freeskiing icon, Mike Douglas, are forced to confront the risks and rewards of following their passion for the mountains. Set in British Columbia's rugged Coast Range mountains, SNOWMAN is a familiar tale of dreaming big and a lifestyle where the greatest risk is not daring to dream at all.

Kevin Fogolin has been an avalanche consultant in British Columbia, Canada for over 15 years. Every season, he drops up to 100 charges (or bombs) out of helicopters to set off avalanches in zones that need clearing to reduce the hazard.On 25 March 2009, Kevin was working for a construction company that was building a hydro-electric facility in the Toba Inlet, a fjord 130 miles north of Whistler, British Columbia.
He was set to drop his 200th bomb when disaster struck…
