The latest video from The North Face, “A Skier’s Way” introduces us to Mike Arnold, an American ski guide in Italy’s Aosta Valley. Mike shares his passion for backcountry skiing and alpinism, while explaining the road that led him from Maine all the way to the heart of the Alps. Most crucially, he takes a head-on look at the risks involved in backcountry skiing, and why, despite those risks, he’s still driven to enjoy a life in the mountains.

From Youtube: Mike Arnold grew up ski racing in Maine, discovered backcountry in Colorado and now works as a professional mountain guide in Italy’s Aosta Valley. Surrounded by 4,000-metre alpine peaks, his adopted home is the historical home of ski mountaineering. In this tight-knit local community, guides have always been highly respected. But they face high risks, too. 
 
Having gained so much from the mountains, Mike has recently been forced to come to terms with what they can take away. He is paid to do what he loves but is it worth the risk?
