WORDS BY ALISON JONES | NOVEMBER 12, 2018
It’s home to some of the most sought-after powder on the planet. And a mighty river runs through it.
The Columbia, fed by thousands of high peaks in south-central British Columbia, lights the homes of millions with its massive hydroelectric dams. But even though the waterway has seen over a century of development, it still retains a certain majesty, one best reflected by the people raised along its banks.
Created by Sherpas Cinema, follow two of the world’s best big mountain skiers, Christina Lustenberger and Dane Tudor, as they travel the Columbia River from the Canadian border north to its source waters, moving through deep powder snows, legendary ranges, and a history that has tied its people to the land.
Part ski adventure, part historical journey, part sensory feast, “Children of the Columbia: A Skier’s Odyssey,” is an artful, honest look at a region that has played a massive role in the Pacific Northwest as a whole, and the commercial backcountry ski industry worldwide.
