If you are watching The Ski Channel regularly, you have no doubt caught the spectacular, epic, mind-bending Universal Pictures film, First Descent starring Shaun White, Terje Haakonsen, Hannah Teter, Nick Perata, Shawn Farmer and special guest Travis Rice.  The word “Epic” cannot be used enough to describe the film. 

It has some of the best AK footage ever shot and chronicles a young Sean White tackling the backcountry of Alaska with eyes the size of cue balls.  Unfortunately the films run on The Ski Channel will end on July 25th.  So if you haven’t seen it yet – do!  It is a real treat.  If you don’t have The Ski Channel yet.  Call your cable operator or television provider.  It is completely free and a mind bender for all mountain sliders, mountain climbers and enthusiasts.
