“It’s All Up Hill From Here” is a 24 min ski adventure about John Seipel, the outdoorsman that built 7 of the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association huts and redefined back country living. The story follows John, Shawn, Nick and the expedition team on a 8 day hut to hut backcountry ski tour. They revisit the past to determine the future in this once in a lifetime opportunity for adventure. Shot on location in Colorado’s wild places.
As the builder of the Polar Star Inn John innovated many hut designs and helped to pioneer the backcountry ski culture that prevails today. Faced with having to let that lifestyle go, John has to pass on his cabin in the woods. But who is worthy to carry the torch of the Polar Star Inn?
