About this item

"A Life Ascending" chronicles the life of acclaimed mountaineer Ruedi Beglinger. Living with his wife and two young daughters on a remote glacier in the vast mountains of British Columbia, Beglinger has built a reputation as one of the top ski mountaineering guides in the world. The film follows his family's unique life off the grid and their journey in the years following a devastating avalanche that killed seven people. Documenting 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.

5.0 stars by FilmGeek21

“A Life Ascending” follows mountaineer Ruedi Beglinger and his family in the wake of a catastrophic avalanche in the remote mountains of British Columbia, where they reside. The movie is visually stunning; the cinematography truly captures the natural beauty of the mountains and glaciers in all their grandeur. However, the awesome scenery does not detract from the portrayal of the Beglingers’ intimate family relationships. The unique life of the family makes this film a worthwhile exploration of the often-tumultuous relationship between humans and their environment.
