Mothered by Mountains
Kristin Lane Nepal
Pasang Lhamu Sherpa Akita, Nepal’s leading female mountain guide, has been on top of the tallest peaks on Earth. When she teams up to make a first ascent with an unlikely partner – local punk-rock icon, Sareena Rai – they both find that the paths to the greatest summits lie within.

The Curve of Time *Award Winner
Jordan Manley Canada
Due to climate change, by 2050 ski seasons will be markedly shorter. Lower elevations will receive significantly less snowfall. Two veteran professional skiers contemplate the impact their love for adventure has on the very environment that sustains and fulfills them. As they peer into the future, they realize there is a more sustainable path ahead, but it won’t be easy.
