On a cold morning in Burlington Vt, old man Zio gets the call to once again journey into the unknown. A brisk wind, the first push off winter's wind, calls him back. Zio must say good by and let it be known he is leaving. The day's journey has a reminiscing effect and sends his mind back to memorable days of adventure. A day years ago, when Zio pedaled down the charmed streets of Stowe, Vermont, with the vigor of a young man. From the bike Zio remembers highlights of his journey from youth, into the mountains, and to the freedom of skiing. From the hardwood glades of Vermont where he first felt the soul of the turn, to years of wanderlust and dedicated training in the North American west, and finally the proving grounds of the Chamonix Valley, France. Zio remembers all he has lost and gained in a lifetime of commitment and surrender built on passion, love and soul. Winter's Wind is the culmination of Matty "Moo" Herriger's years of dedication to film making, skiing and mountains. For more than two decades the elements of Matt Herriger's first independently produced film have been shaped by his experiences as an athlete and one of the industry's most elite high angle cinematographers. Winter's Wind is the story of one man's journey from protege to guru, mentor and legend, played by the real legends of skiing, past, present and future. Shot on 16 mm film and HD video, it is a full-length theatrical feature and ski action epic.
