A Skier Knows: Perspective From The Wilderness

There is a feeling that is shared with skiers all over the world. It’s nothing you can teach, learn or explain. It’s something you feel. Something you know. It stops you from sleeping during a snowstorm - knowing that fresh powder awaits you. It gives you the urge to continue hiking up the mountain when everyone else is stopping at the top of the ski lift. It hits you when looking back at your line at the bottom of a run, wanting to go back up and do it again. It’s a different way of looking at the world and something only A Skier Knows.
In the third episode of A Skier Knows we follow Canadian son, Dave Treadway. If you've seen Dave's flicks before, you know his penchant for dancing down walls and shredding deep pow. We step into the mind of an extreme skier and learn about the tough calls he has to make...
"A skier knows" reflects a language between skiers that is world-wide, and crosses all language barriers. The way to learn it is to have experienced the addicting thrill of sliding down snow (...). Exploring big mountains is one of my favorite things to do in life. This film is doing just that in Bella Coola, then in some unexplored mountains on the BC/Alaska border", Dave Treadway.
