The footage from RK Films’ winning film showcased Jerry, an inexperienced skier, trying to ski with his highly skilled friends. At the beginning of the film Jerry meets a girl named Sherry, who he falls in love with. As the day goes on Jerry’s friends take him up the mountain to the terrain park, through the trees and in the backcountry. Throughout the film, Jerry fails to keep up with his friends until the end where he lands an epic cliff jump to impress Sherry. Sadly, after landing the jump, Jerry finds out that Sherry has a boyfriend.


RK Films took home the grand prize of $10,000 for being named Best of Show by the judges, along with securing the People’s Choice Award.
