In the year of tragedy, he reclaimed his soul.

A Life Ascending chronicles the life of acclaimed ski mountaineer and mountain guide Ruedi Beglinger. Living with his family on a remote glacier in the Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia, Beglinger has built a reputation as one of the top mountaineering guides in the world. When a tragic avalanche kills seven people under Ruedi's watch, it has him questioning his deep-seated love for the extreme life he's chosen for himself and his family.

The film follows his family's unique life in the mountains and documents the sublime beauty and ever-present risk of a life lived on the edge, the film ultimately explores the power of nature as both an unforgiving host and profound teacher.
