In 2017, at 40 years old, Liv set out from her base in Chamonix, France to attempt to climb all 82 of the 4000-metre peaks in the European Alps in a single year. As she’s learned several times throughout her life, things don’t always go as planned.

For the Love of Mary – 6 Mins
When 97-year-old runner George Etzweiler dons his lucky ancient green running shorts, he’s not not just running to the summit of Mt. Washington, Etzweiler carries something else special with him: the memory of his late wife of 68 years.

Since a 100 foot fall in 2002 that took his right leg and left him with spinal injuries, Colorado climber Craig DeMartino has led one hell of a life, including lauded First Disabled and In-A-Day Ascents on El Capitan. But his day-to-day life story is the one that should be making headlines.

Skier vs. Drone – 4 Mins
It’s the classic battle of man vs. machine but Olympic Bronze Medalist ski racer, Victor Muffat-Jeandet isn’t worried.

Rogue Elements: Corbet’s Couloir – 4 Mins
Anyone who has ever skied or snowboarded Jackson Hole knows just how nerve-racking it can be to send it into the infamous Corbet’s Couloir, even in the best of conditions. Doing it in icy conditions on mountain bikes is nothing short of insane, and that’s exactly what we did.

Sacred Strides – 12 Mins
Bears Ears National Monument is one of the most talked-about public lands under threat. In March 2017, a group of Native American tribes put their differences aside and came together to run 1280 kilometres to Bears Ears to send a message of unity.

Tierra del Viento (Land of the Wind) – 18 Mins
In Patagonia, further South than most people ever dare to venture, there’s a land of infinite vastness and beauty. Fine-art photographer Eliseo Miciu explores this mythical place, and also learns a bit more about himself.

Far Out: Kai Jones – 5 Mins
Eleven year old Kai Jones isn’t old enough to go to the movies alone or order a sandwich at the pub, but in the mountains age doesn’t matter. He is following in his family’s ski tracks… right into backflips and tricks off of cliffs.

REEL ROCK 12: Break on Through – 26 Mins
Margo Hayes, a little-known 19 year old from Boulder, Colorado, has moved to Europe to train and climb with the goal of succeeding on two of the most iconic 5.15s in France and Spain. But by pushing her body and mind to the absolute limit, she risks injury and failure in her quest to be the first.

—INTERMISSION—

Choices – 2 Mins
A mountain biker has an amazing menu of rides to choose from but which will he pick?

Viacruxis – 11 Mins
Marcel and Andrezj are a pair of legendary mountaineers. In order to achieve the summit of an unclimbed peak they will have to overcome formidable obstacles, suffer hardships and stand each other’s company for a very long time. But Andrezj is no longer willing to continue in Marcel’s shadow.

Brotherhood of Skiing – 10 Mins
Since 1973, the National Brotherhood of Skiers has overcome barriers by bringing soul, smiles and a party to the mountain.

Ice & Palms – 32 Mins

The Frenchy – 14 Mins
Jacques is an 82 year old, badass athlete, but the real story is how he inspires us with his contagious love of life, epic tales of survival and his ability to counter aging through laughter.
