In the Southern Hemisphere winter of 2021, Janina Kuzma set out with a goal to summit Mt Tasman and ski down the committing descent of the Stevenson-Dick Couloir, with Sam Smoothy by her side for the journey. The Pursuit explores the tremendous upskilling, mental and physical preparation required for a mission of this calibre, and follows the two on the challenging climb and gruelling descent down New Zealand’s second highest peak.
