First Descent ★★ 2005 (PG-13)

Documentary attempts to chronicle the history as well as the current state of freeride snowboarding. Nick Perata, Shawn Farmer, Terji Haakonsen, Shaun White and Hannah Teter ride virgin powder throughout Alaska's spectacular Chugach Mountains. The narration darts around a bit but the obvious enthusiasm more than makes up. 110m/C DVD, UMD . USD: Kevin Harrison; W: Kevin Harrison, Kemp Curley; C: Scott Duncan; M: Mark Mothersbaugh.
