Big mountain skiing is on the rise...

The popularity of big mountain skiing is rising. It's this fact that led some riders to push the boundaries of the ski areas of our western resorts. For others it's a lifestyle choice, sometimes a revelation, that take them deeper and deeper into the mountains, far from the world of men.
All will rise beyond the clich├ęs of big mountain skiing to learn to operate in this new world in pursuit of adventure and authenticity, and probably also a bit of themselves ...

Laurent Jamet was born in Paris. He is passionate in cinema, skating, skiing, travelling and human adventures that he films all over the world in a documentary way and with a particular vision on effort. Rise is his most accomplished film on freeride champion Thibaud Duchosal.
