Watch Jackie Paaso and Eva Walkner’s Film: Evolution of Dreams

There comes a point in every professional athlete's career in which they must make a transition. Retirement, rehabbing an injury, or embarking on a new path can often feel to many as an ending. For skiers Jackie Paaso and Eva Walkner, transition signifies an evolution. Throughout the course of their careers, they've been constantly evolving. The two freeride world tour competitors both came from unconventional backgrounds, Paaso a mogul skier and Walkner a ski racer, but they didn't let that keep from competing on the world stage of freeskiing. Their latest film, Evolution of Dreams follows their journey from regulated ski competitions to the freedom of big mountain skiing, and the many highs and lows they experienced along the way. It's an honest look at success, failure, and chasing dreams juxtaposed with some pretty tantalizing steep skiing in the alps.

Ouch. It’s one thing to be skiing and riding as aggressively as the athletes on the Freeride World Tour, and it’s an entirely different thing to be crashing as hard as they (sometimes) do. Competing at the highest level leaves very little margin for error, and that’s pretty clear if you watch some of the bails from the 2021 Tour. There’s everything from 60-0 in a matter of inches (shoutout Aymar Navarro and that snowbank) to folks going SPLAT off gigantic airs (shoutout everyone else). Hope

Leave it to the French to be dramatic about this kind of stuff… No really, Hugo Manhes’s project “Un Skier en Feu” (A Skier on Fire) is a stark and important visualization of climate change and its impact on how we play in the mountains. Sure, statistics like the fact that the snowpack on France’s Porte Pass has decreased by 40 percent in three decades, the average winter temperature increasing by a full degree, and many more might get the attention of some, but at this point maybe we do need

Half the reason we watch the Freeride World Tour is for the cliff drops. These athletes have an uncanny ability to link up lines that only mountain goats would climb, and we’re always wondering how they do it. Take a peek at this year’s best drops, which are spicier than your favorite 5-star curry.
