You know Shaun White, the Olympic gold medalist. You watched him kill it at the X Games. But no one has ever witnessed Shaun White unleashed into the remote mountains of Japan's back-country. Thrust into unknown territory, fresh powder, and unpredictable circumstances, White reconnects with his snowboarding origins, reflecting on the wonders of being one of the world's most famous athletes at age 21. Filmed in vibrant high def and featuring a progressive, scored soundtrack, The Ultimate Ride pushes the limits of a champion, - no rails, no perfectly groomed pipe, no fans, not much lift service - just himself, fresh powder, endless landscape, doubts , fears and exhilaration!
