The latest short film from Story of a Ski Tour, Army, which was part of the All Girls selection at iF3, and winner of the Local's Choice Award at the Rockies Shred Fest, tells the story of Alexandra Armstrong, a ski patroller at Lake Louise and coach of the Lake Louise Mountain Club. Armstrong loves to ski, but her passion comes at a price: sacrificing financial stability, and a permanent address, to chase the dream. In the end though, Armstrong admits she wouldn't have it any other way. "Without following that passion and seeing if there is success in it, or even if there’s failure," she says, "You’ll be happy because you are doing what you love, and that’s the most important thing."
