Sammy Carlson, a previous Winter Olympics slopestyle skiing candidate, showcases his mastery of beloved backcountry terrain across the world in Teton Gravity Research's new film, Sammy C Project.

USA, Switzerland, British Colombia | 70 min | Blu-ray | Dir. Sammy Carlson

In 2014, after winning 5 X Games medals, Sammy Carlson abruptly stepped away from competition and dropped out of the Olympic rat race–even as slopestyle skiing was about to make its Winter Olympic debut. Instead, Sammy decided to pursue a new path that would push him and the sport of skiing to new places at all costs. Sammy’s newfound focus landed in the backcountry, where his drive and creativity could max out far beyond the limits of preset slopestyle courses. The veritable freestyle onslaught that followed–on the world’s mountains, and even on a 240 foot-tall ski flying ramp in Michigan–was unlike any seen before, and would net Sammy three straight X Games Real Ski Backcountry gold medals. The Sammy C Project documents Sammy’s mastery of a new direction for skiing, and shows how convention should never stop you from pursuing the path you believe in. (Teton Gravity Research)
