From stomping the world’s first backside triple cork 1440, to winning a record-setting twenty X Games medals, Mark McMorris has established himself as one of the most successful athletes in the history of competitive snowboarding.
But despite this long-list of accolades and honours, the Canadian snowboarder has yet to cement his spot on the 2022 world stage — due to the unprecedented 2020/21 season. Now, the future for many of the world’s top athletes is in jeopardy as a only handful of early-season qualifying events remain.
Chasing Winter follows McMorris and an international collective of Slopestyle and Big Air specialists as they navigate the highs and lows of 2020/21, and prepare for the high-stakes 2022 season.
The full length documentary film shines light on the harsh realities, intrinsic risks, stark passions, and everlasting friendships fastened by snowboarding. From X Games, to the newly-coveted Natural Selection Tour, and finally, the Stomping Grounds training camp in Saas-Fee, Switzerland, Chasing Winter offers a unique look into life as a professional competitive snowboarder.
