The Fall Line
America's Rise to Ski Racing's Summit
The Fall Line delivers the adrenaline of one of the most beautiful and perilous sports with a panoramic view of skiing’s past, present and future.
Here is an authoritative portrait of a group of men and women taking mortal risks in a bid for sporting glory. A white-knuckled tour through skiing’s deep traditions and least-accessible locales, The Fall Line opens up the sexy, high-stakes world of downhill skiing—its career-ending crashes, million-dollar sponsorship deals, international intrigue and showdowns with nature itself.
