Swift.Silent.Deep is the first true historical documentation of hardcore ski bum culture in North America. Telling the story of a secretive, underground crew who called themselves the Jackson Hole Air Force, the salad days of Benny Wilson, Howard Hendersen, and their band of civil disobedients in the unknown realm of "Out-of Bounds" at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The influence of the JH Air Force has reached far beyond Jackson; JHAF members won the first three World Extreme Skiing Championships and are directly responsible for pioneering the big mountain skiing in the world's most incredible playground -Alaska, bringing about the fat ski revolution and changing the face of skiing forever. This exploration into the roots of the modern American ski bum can only be described as "Hell's Angels on Skis" and features many familiar faces in the action sports world like Warren Miller, Scot Schmidt and the late Doug Coombs. By combining core credibility with mainstream appeal, SWIFT.SILENT.DEEP. goes far beyond the typical action sports formula, creating a documentary that satisfies intellectual curiosity while delivering action packed footage.
