In the world of big-mountain skiing, Trevor Petersen was a legend.
Appearing in countless films, magazines and photo shoots, his ponytail
flying behind him, he was the very embodiment of the freewheeling
spirit of extreme skiing in the 1980s and early ’90s.
Then it all came to an end. On February 26, 1996, while skiing in
Chamonix, France—the so-called Death Sport Capital of the World—an
avalanche swept Trevor away. His body was found sitting up in the snow
as if gazing at the mountains he loved.
Nearly a decade later, Trevor’s fifteen-year-old son, Kye Petersen, a rising star in his own right, traveled to Chamonix to ski the run that took his father’s life and, with the aid of some of the world’s greatest ski mountaineers, to become a member of skiing’s big-mountain tribe. There to chronicle Kye’s story was William A. Kerig, a filmmaker with a dream of his own—to create a film about the soul of big-mountain skiing and the band of mountaineers who ski the steepest, wildest, most dangerous terrain in the world.
In The Edge of Never, Kerig gives us not only a ripping adventure tale about a young man coming of age but a frank and subtle portrait of the extreme skiers who "live big" in the face of death and risk everything to experience the fullness of life in the mountains.
"A gripping tale of fathers, sons, and the mountains that call to them."
— Marc Peruzzi, former editor-in-chief, Skiing magazine
"A great exploration of the tragic and unforgiving nature of life in
the mountains and its beautiful and sometimes irresistible allure."
— Derek Taylor, editor, Powder magazine
