Dog Days Of Winter is by far the most complete history of professional freestyle skiing to date. Insightful interviews melded seamlessly with classic vintage footage of the heroes of the birth of freestyle skiing. I was there as a ten year old kid watching it in awe. I loved it!

The Story Of A Sport Born In America

 

"Dog Days Of Winter" is the first feature documentary on the start up of organized freestyle skiing during the early 1970's in America. Told from the point of view of some of the most influential pioneers of the sport, 'Dog Days' tells the story of key people and events that set the stage for the birth of the sport, the spirit that freestyle is rooted in, factors that took the 'free' out of freestyle and what has become of the sport today. 

What all the freestylers have now, this stage to compete in the Olympics and this whole format whether it's too regulated or not, it's all because of those guys.

We didn't want to be coined as racers or disciplined skiers, we were the free spirits of skiing at that

time.

Freestyle Pioneer, Wayne Wong
