“What gives us hope for tomorrow, if we can survive this chaos?”

Over a winter like none other in recorded history, three women grind towards building the future they want, even as catastrophic snowfall, their work, and their everyday lives check each move forward.

IN PRODUCTION Through May '24

stories about people and place, identity and community.
This is the story of becoming.

We are complex humans—women charting our own path forward as we discover our connections to self, each other, land, and community in places we’re erased, minimized, and undervalued.

Yet it is our communion on common ground (this land) that makes us who we are as much as charts our path forward.

Backcountry skiing and snowboarding are our mediums. Storytelling is our mode, the way we show how the land empowers us to uncover who we truly are.

Trust is the foundation of our backcountry relationships: with ourselves, each other, and even the land, these are the spaces that define us. Yet in this process of becoming—alpinists, ski partners, Latinas, ourselves—snowboarder Dani Reyes-Acosta and skier Lani Bruntz learn that the journey isn’t just the destination.

We have to believe that our pursuit is not pointless, that our will to survive and thrive takes us somewhere. Maybe, just beyond our pain and suffering, we’ll find the redemption of the infinite.
