Intrepid Descent captures the classic wilderness experience of skiing Tuckerman Ravine, the legendary birthplace of backcountry skiing. Nestled just below the summit of Mount Washington, the tallest peak in New England (and home to some of the most extreme weather on Earth), the Ravine, with it's near-vertical slopes of rock, ice and snow, has been home to triumph and tragedy since the early 1920's. Today, it remains a Mecca for skiers and adventurers from all over the world. Interviews with expert skiers and others are interwoven with rare footage and photos to reveal Tuckerman's rich history, where the classic man-against-nature story has been repeated for generations. To bring home the Tuckerman experience, the filmmakers take US up the daunting climb to the top of the Ravine, and then over the lip, on an exhilarating, heart-stopping descent. Intrepid Descent pays homage both to the mountain and to the individuals who dare to test themselves on it's treacherous slopes.
