As our athlete profile series comes to an end, this second documentary episode looks at how the athletes make themselves as robust as possible to help their bodies cope with the physical extremes of freestyle snowboarding and freeski. Following some of the GB Park and Pipe team through the rehab process, this film also takes stock of how the athletes mentally deal with being off the snow.
