The Big Picture. Part 3: Pushing the boundaries. Is the pull of the backcountry pushing our limits?



Is the pull of the backcountry pushing our limits?
Backcountry skiing is the fastest growing segment of the snowsport industry, but are people ready to accept their responsibilities when they step beyond the boundary? Ski resorts are at the front lines of backcountry access to winter wilderness and they play a vital role in backcountry safety.

The Big Picture is a four-part series exploring big questions:

P1: Conflicted Obsessions - Is our thirst for adventure threatening our environment?
P2: Tech Trap - What if kids stopped playing outside?
P3: Pushing the boundaries - Is the pull of the backcountry pushing our limits?
P4: Survive or thrive - What's the future of ski resorts?
