Made by local Squaw filmmaker Duane Kubischta, the film follows Miles Clark, Jackie Paaso, and Jeff Seifred on their 3,000-mile road trip from Squaw Valley to the glacial peaks of southern Alaska, with stops at Mt. Baker, Whistler, and Smithers, BC. Interviews and personal journeys guide the story. The skiers skip the helicopters for the “earn your turn” experience.
“AK the Hard Way” is the fourth release from Adventure Film Works, whose previous films have screened at mountain film festivals including: Banff, Taos, Kendal, Vancouver, Wild & Scenic, New Zealand, and Edinburgh. TheDVD and movie trailer are available at adventurefilmworks.com.
