Kye Petersen, teenager skier finds place dad (Trevor Petersen) died at Chamonix and skies it for dad. Interesting for ski bum, parent, youth, grandparent. Underlying tension of reality.
Young man’s life’s passage.Interesting. I climbed a little. Never downhilled…just cross country. I have always been fascinated with the life of a ski bum, the mountaineer, the old K2-REI days, the North Cascades. Not enough to go do it. I was always pulled down toward the moving waters in the Winter.
So this morning, I found myself up early watching this movie of a daredevil kid not listening to extreme ski legends, chasing some legacy of his dearly departed father, who died in France on the crazy, deadly, steep slopes of Chamonix, doing extreme descents.
Interesting combo of youth, legends, filming. Eventually, the kid realizes who the older men are and who they were to his thrill seeking dad. Edge of Never…find it if you have that thrill seeking side, or even if you don’t. It grows on you as it all comes together at the Edge of Never…homage, sacred, realities, spiritual. Smiles on the faces of the departed. Closing the Circle.
