What happens when the passion for your dreams fades? Do you just stop? Or do you search for what’s missing and uncover new dreams and goals? Eva and Jackie’s journeys have taken them from regulated ski courses to big mountain skiing which allowed them more freedom. Throughout that journey, they’ve discovered another aspect of skiing, ski mountaineering. In this new discipline, they have to tackle new challenges and conquer new fears. It’s their evolution of dreams. Eva and Jackie met ten years ago while competing on the Freeride World Tour. Over the year’s great success followed, both in the form of victories and life experiences. The path to the top wasn’t always what they had dreamt of. The discovery of freeriding came after failure and misfortune within their original dreams lead them to where they are today. Eva a former alpine racer and member of the Austrian national team and Jackie a former mogul skier with a Jr. World Championship title under her belt both walked away from dreams of Olympic gold. The pain that follows after you stop doing something that you love can be debilitating. The strength you gain from pushing through and continuing to believe in yourself can be empowering. Today, Eva Walkner, is recognized as one of the best big mountain competitors in the world. Jackie Paaso is known for her all in or nothing mentality in the mountains. They have found themselves among the ranks of the best big mountain skiers in the world. The motivated individuals that they are have both found having goals and dreams in life is not only what drives them but it’s also an essential part of their happiness. These days they have now switched their sights from the competition world to new aspects of skiing such as ski mountaineering. With the goal of climbing and skiing the Eiger more obstacles are thrown their way. Do they let that stop them? Follow them this fall in “Evolution of Dreams” to find out!



I LOVED THIS

Favourite quote “Oh my god I can’t believe I don’t have a husband!” And she’s out in the woods on her own... Spoiler... Azzah survives, and enjoys it...

Anna Paxton

So funny, what a caritour. So relatable I don't have a husband either. 😃

Ed Birch Director of Salt-Street productions

A fun, heartwarming and uplifting adventure film!

Ruth Farrar

In moments of rawness and realness, we find our true selves. This is Azzah’s story. While dealing with one of the darkest times of her life, processing family trauma and recovering from injury, Azzah overhears a conversation around the question, “what do you want to do before you die?” Inspired and energized, she rushes home and begins her bucket list. Although she has never seen herself as much of an adventurer, she realizes she’s capable of more than she ever imagined.Long SynopsisWe pick up with Azzah in her own personal sunrise as she redefines what she wants her life to look like. Her story is one of identity, self-discovery and answering the call of the natural world. It reminds us that there’s a difference between living and just being alive.

Kirk first met George during the filming of his senior thesis at Middlebury College. The film, surrounding senior citizen runners, led him to the “New England Legend” that was George Etzweiler. After seeing the film, Simon contacted Kirk, and the two agreed that George’s story was one that had to be told to a wider audience. The two filmmakers, formerly player and coach on the Men’s Soccer Team at Middlebury, chased George up Mt. Washington during the race’s 2017 competition, and then followed him around State College, PA for a day in September. His quips and stories will stay with them long after the film stops circulating. NOTE – George just recently completed the 2018 Mt. Washington Road Race, beating his 2017 time by a full minute, at the impressive age of 98!

Oh Wow mountains oh and skiing. oh and more mountains and wow more skiing.

Ed Birch Director of Salt-Street productions

Gloriously well made skiing and snowboarding Adrenalin movie. Deeply enjoyable with great music and superb photography, even if it is saturated with testosterone and suffused with male ego. This is the way to do bro-adventure films.

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

Chamonix is one of the most prestigious place for mountaineers in the world, its history is full of stories of conquests and failures.
