Twenty years ago, the sport of skiing was in danger of fading away as the younger generation passed it by in favour of more progressive sports like snowboarding. With the invention of the first high-performance twin-tip ski in 1997, Salomon and the New Canadian Air Force turned skiing around. The original crew reunites in Whistler to celebrate the anniversary and look back at what has happened in the sport.
