Slides on the Mountain follows Talon (17) and Riki (15), two brothers from the Lil’wat Nation, as they decide to ski Ts’zil and set off to learn the skills they need to ride the mountain safely. Their unique personalities shine as we follow them through the winter while Lil’wat elders shed light on why it’s so significant for Lil’wat youth to be able to experience the mountains so deeply entrenched in their culture.

Jury Quote

Slides on the Mountain is more than just a ski film; it is a celebration of culture, community, and the deep connections rooted between land and people. This stunning film did an excellent job of capturing the brothers’ journey to gain the skills and courage to face the mountain, while also exploring the broader significance of their endeavor within their community and culture.

– Alec Suriyuth, VIMFF 2024 Jury
