Jesse Hoffman, born and raised in Aspen, Colorado, recently put together this edit for the ReDirect film competition. It's beautiful imagery paired with narration and skiing by devoted Aspen locals like Chris Davenport, Sam Coffey, JoAnna Coffey, Garrett Greene, and Patrick Doyle— and it gave us goosebumps. 

 "Regardless of the grade, the elevation, or the name of the peak, we go to the mountains seeking a feeling; and no matter where or who we are, the feeling is the same," Hoffman says. "Whether we're on the highest mountain in the world or at our local hill back home, we go for the process.”
