About the Film
‘Attack of La Niña’ is a recap of one of the longest and deepest North American winters on record, served up courtesy of the worldwide weather phenomenon known as la niña. Last winter continued to amaze us as the season went on weather patterns relentlessly pounded the western US and Canada, said executive producer Murray Wais. Deep snow and epic conditions made it nearly impossible to stray too far from home, creating opportunities to go deeper into zones that we’ve explored in the past. We were able to check out some spots that we’d never even thought of as possibilities before, and the payoff was greater than we ever could have expected!
Along for the ride is MSP staple Sean Pettit, throwing down and dominating powder across his home province of British Columbia. Follow the journey of Frenchman Richard Permin as he chases storms throughout Canada, and watch the exploits of X Games superstar Bobby Brown as he leads an A-list team back to Alyeska for another massive jump session. A heliskiing trip deep into an elusive BC Coast Range hot spring provides the backdrop for one of the most scenic segments of the year, featuring Ingrid Backstrom, James Heim, and Eric Hjorleifson. Be sure to bask in the persona of skiing’s funniest character, Colby West, on his quest for the ultimate run.
