[WATCH] John Spriggs and crew feast on Montana’s backcountry in MUST BE NICE

Professional skiers hear it all too often: “must be nice” to be able to ski everyday. But what most people don’t see is the time, work, effort and injuries that come with the job. John Spriggs has admittedly had his moments of doubt about whether it’s all worth it but when he got his crew together in the depths of Montana’s backcountry, everything made sense. Chock-full of steep pillow stacks, big lines and deep pow, MUST BE NICE also delves into the darker side of skiing. Last year, Colorado was plagued with one of the most dangerous snowpacks in ski history and unfortunately claimed the life of fellow Coloradan and friend, Johnny Kuo. To top it off, Spriggs tears his ACL. While skiing everyday comes at a specific price, the freedom it provides is worth it every time.
