The crew behind Seeking Nirvana may not have been professional filmmakers, but what they lacked in technical skill they made up for in team chemistry. After growing up skiing together, they wanted to share their creativity with the ski film industry—so they went for it. In this behind-the-scenes look, skiers Mike Henitiuk, Joe Schuster, Matt Margetts, and Riley Leboe show you what went into the four episodes from this season of Seeking Nirvana. From one-week turnarounds to epic tumbles, the process was chock-full of excitement all along the way.
