What if you could link every powder turn, every rail, every cliff drop, every comp run and every kicker nailed into one ultimate run? Well, Markus Eder did just that in ‘The Ultimate Run’!
‘Nerve’ is a true story about 24-year-old U.S. Freeski Team rider Colby Stevenson from Park City, Utah, overcoming traumatic brain injury and rehabilitation after a near-career ending car crash in 2016.
The gifted skier suffered multiple skull fractures in the crash and doctors had little hope for a full recovery, let alone freestyle skiing on a professional level. Over the coming months, Stevenson endured vertigo and memory problems, but showed the will to power through the ordeal.
“My whole dream, everything was over. I might not ever be the same again, but I always had hope,” said Stevenson, who prevailed to make X Games history and win two 2020/21 FIS Freeski Crystal Globes, in the new documentary. “Before the crash, I did not see how lucky I was. Once it was all taken away, I started seeing the beauty in the little things. I started to be grateful.”
Produced by Monster Energy, “Nerve” was written and directed by professional freeski athlete and filmmaker Clayton Vila.
