Shawn Farmer on Terje HÃ¥konsen, "He's like a cat, he can fly..." Well, cats don't fly, but this group does fly to AK to wait out the storms and then hits the pow big time. Travis Rice joins the group, they build a massive kicker and there's some carnage: the Travis, Terje, & Shaun showdown is on after the preliminary eliminations. Shaun White speaks prophetically about achieving other goals before he commits to backcountry riding since "dying ain't much of a livin'." Shawn Farmer shows his mettle by riding down steep lines that always involve rocks. Hannah Teter & Nick Perata keep things sane, like totalleh, ya kno. The final scene is a ridiculously steep face that Terje must conquer, while the others look on in disbelief - along with the audience. It's pretty crazy. Did I forget to mention the avalanche?
