Barely a decade old, speed riding is a high-speed, high-stakes
mountain sport that fuses elements of skiing and parachute flight.
This hybrid approach to the alpine gives its intrepid practitioners
access to terrain that would otherwise be inaccessible. Some
scenes in this film may not be appropriate for young viewers.
