The movie follows the journeys of Will Jackways and Jacqui Edgerly among other world-class skiers and snowboarders as they take on the World Heli Challenge in New Zealand.   Here is a taste of what is to come. 

The World Heli Challenge is an elite Heli - accessed ski and snowboard event attracting athletes from around the world to challenge themselves in the backcountry terrain surrounding Wanaka.  Southern Lakes Heli fly the competitors on two competition days - a Freestyle Day and Extreme Day.

Athletes are judged on their overall performance across both days, their abilities to showcase their free-riding skills in steep and challenging terrain and to deliver a smooth, strong and consistent line. A strong local line up includes 2012 winner Will Jackways and Wanaka legends Sam Smoothy and Fraser McDougall.
