Rainier to an all women’s ski and sail expedition in Norway, it was an inspiring year of stories from the mountain life.

Dave Sweet has spent over a decade helping to bring back the Yellowstone Cutthroat from the brink of extinction.

Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, Stone’s Throw is a film about proximity and the doors of possibility that are opened by living in a city next to the mountains.
