There is far more to skiing than just skiing. Life, death, family, friends, endless fun and a sport that takes you to the furthest reaches of the globe are a part of what makes a life centered around skiing so special. Conquering the Useless is a story about this full scope of skiing. From a family centered around mountains to going deep into the unknown, this documentary style film tells a story about a relationship with the mountains, the friends and family created between them and the endless challenges they provide. Shot on location in Revelstoke, Bella Coola, and the Boundary Mountains on the border of Alaska and Canada.
