In the world of big-mountain skiing, Trevor Petersen was a legend. Appearing in countless films, magazines and photo shoots, his ponytail flying behind him, he was the very embodiment of the freewheeling spirit of extreme skiing in the 1980s and early 90s.
Then it all came to an end. On February 26, 1996, while skiing in Chamonix, France the so-called Death Sport Capital of the World an avalanche swept Trevor away. His body was found sitting up in the snow as if gazing at the mountains he loved.
Nearly a decade later, Trevors fifteen-year-old son, Kye Petersen, a rising star in his own right, traveled to Chamonix to ski the run that took his fathers life and, with the aid of some of the worlds greatest ski mountaineers, to become a member of skiings big-mountain tribe.
There to chronicle Kyes story was William A. Kerig, a filmmaker with a dream of his own to create a film about the soul of big-mountain skiing and the band of mountaineers who ski the steepest, wildest, most dangerous terrain in the world.
In The Edge of Never, Kerig gives us not only a ripping adventure tale about a young man coming of age but a frank and subtle portrait of the extreme skiers who live big in the face of death and risk everything to experience the fullness of life in the mountains.
