Vasu Sojitra does something few people can do, ski the backcountry with one leg. He lost his right leg to a blood infection at 9 months old. But rather than letting his disability define him,Vasu has always treated his amputation as a mere hiccup in life. Columbia presents T-Bar Film's "Out on a Limb", a film that profiles Vasu's inspiring story and follows him as he ventures deeper into the backcountry to summit peaks, drop into avalanche zones, send cliffs, and ski deep powder lines–all completely unassisted.This film gained international recognition as a finalist in the Banff Mountain Film Festival and as winner of the Winter Wildlands Backcountry Film Festival. Teton Gravity Research is proud to be exclusively premiering "Out On A Limb" today on our website.
Go behind the scenes of "Out On A Limb" with an exclusive interview with Vasu Sojitra & director Tyler Wilkinson-Ray.

The Ski Utah Wild Women of the Wasatch find happiness in the moments of synergy between the earth, our bodies and minds, that face shot of powder floating light as a bird across the snow. The deep belly laughs bubbling out when our girlfriend cracks a joke at the goofy outfit we put on, just because. It’s the chill that runs up our spine when the mountain breeze meets the sweat from hiking up the peak. It’s that sweet, sweet rush of pointing ‘em straight down the mountain, and when it comes
