According to Matchstick Productions, the premise of Attack of La Nina:

Chronicles the winter of 2010-2011, the deepest North American winter in recent history. “Attack of La Niña” showcases the talents of today’s best skiers in a journey through the snowiest winter of their lives. This action-packed Skiing film was captured using state-of-the-art cameras – demonstrates the limit of what is possible in modern freeskiing. Featuring super steep descents, unbelievably deep powder, and giant airs, “Attack of La Niña” will transport you to Colorado, Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, California, and many other world-class destinations.

If the beauty of the mountains aren’t enough to pull you right into the scenes, then prepare to be completely mesmerized by the likes of Sean Pettit, bit mountain skiing superstar, this guy literally flies off the screen. Then check out Bobby Brown, freeskiing rock star and king of the most recent X Games, nothing but huge air!
