DOCUMENTARY: Sunny on the Slopes

SnowSeekers - in partnership with the Digital Media Program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology - filmed 10-year-old Sunny Gantumur take to the slopes for her first time over the course of a six week learn to ski adventure. The resulting 14-minute documentary is called "Sunny on the Slopes".

The documentary chronicles Sunny’s trials and tribulations in learning how to tackle the snow, lead by her Snow Valley instructor Christina Schmidtke, following them from day one right through till Sunny was ready to take on the Canadian Rockies at Castle Mountain Resort. The one thing we didn’t anticipate was how it would end.
