The Story Of A Sport Born In America
“Dog Days Of Winter” is the first feature documentary on the start up of organized freestyle skiing during the early 1970’s in America. Told from the point of view of some of the most influential pioneers of the sport, ‘Dog Days’ tells the story of key people and events that set the stage for the birth of the sport, the spirit that freestyle is rooted in, factors that took the ‘free’ out of freestyle and reflections on what has become of the sport today.
“What all the freestylers have now, this stage to compete in the Olympics and this whole format whether it’s too regulated or not, it’s all because of those guys.”
Olympic Gold Medalist, Jonny Moseley
“We didn’t want to be coined as racers or disciplined skiers, we were the free spirits of skiing at that time.”
Freestyle Pioneer, Wayne Wong
