Dark Light (special edit)

In 2014,  the award winning film Afterglow followed skiers down impossibly lit, virgin powder slopes in the dead of night. Get ready for the sequel, this time on two wheels.

Pretty Faces (special edit)

Celebrate women who thrive in the snow! Follow her as she chases snow, from the time she needs to be lifted onto a chairlift to her first Alaskan dream line and beyond

Line Across the Sky

Long considered impossible, coveted by many and attempted by a few, the Fitz Traverse has fueled the imaginations of climbers in Patagonia for decades. Tracing the iconic skyline of Cerro Fitz Roy and its six satellite peaks, with epic route finding and endless repelling. Seizing their chance during rare extended weather window, Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold went big. The pair completed the first ascent in a five-day push during February 2014.

Nature RX

Is life a little too mundane or overwhelming? Feeling tired, irritable or stressed out? Maybe Nature Rx is just the ticket.

Project Mina (specials edit)

A rare, intimate, behind-the-scenes look at the life of pro climber, Mina Leslie-Wujastyk during a season on the world cup bouldering circuit.

Paradise Waits (Special Banff Edit)

How do you celebrate winter when snow finally falls? Freeskier Tim Durtschi takes tram laps at Jackson Hole and big mountain slier Angel Collinson rips up some Alaskan lines.

Salween Spring

Travis Winn has been running rivers in China for 15 years. He’s explored first descents, but also watched rivers disappear behind dams. Now he’s found a rafting company to bring Chinese to see their rivers before they’re gone. Salween Spring is Travis’ meditation on change,  personal struggle, and kayaking along China’s frontier.

Women’s Speed Ascent

Mayan Smith-Gobat and Libby Sauter knew that the women’s speed record for the  ascent of The Nose on El Cap was theirs for the taking. Crushing the old record after just a few days of attempts, Mayan and Libby put their names in the record book of the infamous route in the Yosemite National Park.

Denali

There’s no easy way to say goodbye to a friend, especially when they’ve supported you through your darkest times. A collaboration between Ben Knight, Skip Armstrong and Ben Moon.

Builder (special edit)

Some people grow up and leave childish things behind. Others just take their childhood dreams and turn them up to 11 as they age. Building trails and tricks for your mountain bike never gets old, no matter your age.

SATURDAY NIGHT:

Important Places

Using a mix of old 16mm footage and new visuals, a son discovers the necessity of returning to and protecting “the important places” in our lives.

Last Dragons

An intimate glimpse at North America’s Eastern Hellbender, an ancient salamander as mythical as it is real. And in many waters, myths are all that remain of these sentinel stream-dwellers.

Curiosity

How does curiosity inspire ultra-marathoners Rory Bosio, Timothy Olson and Hal Koerner as they prepare for the Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc? Their artistry gives them lots in common with local artist Andy Parkin.

Eclipse

The odds are low, the risks are high—photographer Reuben Krabbe is determined to capture a photo of a skier in front of the 2015 solar eclipse in Svalbard. But the weather’s bad, the guide sketchy, the pressure is massive and the skiers just want to ski.

Nature RX

Is life a little too mundane or overwhelming? Feeling tired, irritable or stressed out? Maybe  Nature Rx is just the ticket.

Rocky Mountains Traverse (special edit)

When Will Gadd and Gavin McGlurg decided they wanted to define a new bold style in paragliding, they could not have picked a more vegetated, convoluted and downright burly route to test their concept. With one simple rule of only being able to make forward progress in the air, they set off on a 700-kilometr traverse of the Canadian Rockies.

Climbing Ice: The Iceland Trifecta

Join award-winning photographer Tim Kemple and ice climbers Klemen Premri and Rahel Schelb for an expedition to Iceland’s Vatnajokull Glacier to discover new ways to push the boundaries of climbing ice.

Warmth of Winter

Outside, the snow flies and the wind roars. But here, quiet and safe in the candlelight, the warmth and the wood wrap around you like a blanket, and the mind melts into reflections of days gone by. Take shelter from the storm. Sit down by the fire, have a drink, and take a load off. There is no warmth like a warmth found in winter.

unReal (special edit)

Imagine a world where you ride the perfect trail perfectly, and sometimes snow isn’t the only stuff that falls from the sky. When you spend all of your time at work dreaming about mountain biking, which is real?
