For Lack of Better: Side B—Featuring Cam Riley

Cam Riley's hard-earned athlete segment

Nominated for six POWDER Awards, including Movie of the Year , For Lack of Better, starring Clayton Vila, Sean Jordan, and Cam Riley, has been hailed as a triumph in storytelling and skiing, with an honest and at times brutal account of skiing the chain-link fences and metal bars found on city streets. The film is all about story. But take a moment to revel in the skiing. Vila, who directed the film (which Teton Gravity Research distributed), released today the athlete segment for Riley, which as the film describes, is the ultimate goal of the winter, what drives them to the edges of their sanity to ski as best as they can, and then some. Riley’s creativity, determination, and skill is unthinkable, and well deserving of a nomination for Best Male Performance in the 16th Annual POWDER Awards.

Come to the POWDER Awards in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Friday, December 4, to celebrate the best in skiing.
