‘Off Piste’ movie chronicles avalanche deaths of two US Olympic hopefuls

(CNN)It was a beautiful Monday morning in the Austrian Alps when six young US ski racers set off for a day of freeskiing.

But what should have been a relaxing morning on the slopes of Sölden turned into tragedy when the group skied down an unmarked, ungroomed slope and unwittingly caused an avalanche.
The 13-minute “Off Piste: Tragedy in the Alps” movie, released by the Bryce and Ronnie Snow Safety Foundation (BRASS), opens with a dramatic re-enactment of the moment immediately after the huge avalanche engulfed two future ski stars on the US youth team on January 5, 2015.
