Featuring interviews with duPont’s family, as well as archival film and photos, it’s easy to see how DuPont’s path led her to Haines. She was practically born on skis in Sun Valley, ID, where her mother was allegedly one of the first women to do a backflip on snow and her brother-in-law is US Ski Team and big mountain legend Reggie Crist. Despite the obvious advantages, the role that her determination and talent play in her rise as a pro are evident throughout the film.
