On a cold autumn day, "Pappa" Zio pedals down the charmed streets of Stowe, Vermont with the vigor of a much younger man, to his own surprise birthday party. A brisk wind embraces him - the first of Winter's wind - and sends Zio through the memories of his journey from youth, into the mountains, and to the freedom of skiing. From the hardwood glades of Vermont where he first felt the soul of the turn, to years of wanderlust and dedicated training in the North American West, and finally the proving grounds of the Chamonix Valley, France, Zio remembers all he has lost and gained in a lifetime of commitment and passion built on love and soul.
Winter's Wind is the culmination of Matty "Moo" Herriger's years of dedication to film making, skiing and mountains. For more than two decades the elements of Matt Herriger's first independently produced film have been shaped by his experiences as an athlete and one of the industry's most elite high angle cinematographers.
Winter's Wind is the story of one man's journey from protege to guru, mentor and legend, played by the real legends of skiing - past, present and future. Shot on 16mm film and HD video, it is a full-length theatrical feature and ski action epic.
