I was a good kid.

A strong kid.

I always had a deep desire

to win.

Everything for me

was competition.

Hockey was my sport.

And that sport became my drug.

I got hit a lot in hockey.

I got hit hard.

I got driven into the boards.

I dislocated a shoulder.

I tore up a knee.

I couldn't walk for a summer.

I fell on my face.

I ate through a straw.

I got hit, I fell,

I got back up.

That's how I won.

Until I got hit by something

I couldn't beat.

I became addicted

to another drug.

It created a false sense

of victory.

I was in darkness.

I lost my way.

24-hours a day.

I bet the only thing

cranked up in your house...

Maybe the only way

to stop was to die.

We're gonna give you

some more of that coming up.

Let me give you guys

the weather today on this...

Can we call it lovely

February 6, 2004?

Looks like a big storm,

a big storm

coming in later this afternoon.

This is the craziest winter

I've seen in years.


Romans seven says,

"for I have the desire

to do what is good,"

but I cannot carry it out,

for I do not do the good

I want to do

but the evil

I don't want to do.

"This I keep on doing."

Do you know how many

millions of kids dream

of being a pro athlete,

of having that chance?

And... and you're throwing it

away by snorting meth?


I'm done.

I'm not going

to help you anymore

until you want to help yourself.

Well, I hired you a lawyer.

He said you absolutely

have to show up in court

in seven days.

You're going

to have to commit

to a 12-step recovery program.

Oh, my god.

My god.


Come on. Oh, god.

That's your equity, idiot.


Wait! Wait!




- Hey.

- Ooh. But...

Seriously, there's four reasons

you should not be eating that,

the first one being

that's where Jackson pees.


It also lowers

your body temperature

and makes you prone

to hypothermia.

But the thing that most people

don't know

is it actually dehydrates you.

So, all in all,

not a good idea.

Good to know.

Um, I'm Sarah, by the way.

- Eric.

- Headed up the mountain?

- Yeah.

- Hop in, I'll give you a ride.

This close enough for you?

Whoa! Jackson, leave him alone.

We gotta go.

- Be safe out there, ok?

- Thanks.

Don't tell your beautiful

mother our secret, okay, buddy?

Enjoy the mountain air.

Always do.

Patrol 2 to base.

We gotta do something soon.

Hey, Corey wants to see you.

He said it's important.

- I know. I've already told him.

- No, he knows.

He's not leaving early. I think

this is actually important.

You've reached

Susan lemarque.

Please leave a message.

Hey, mom.

I'm out boarding. Uh...

I just had to get away

for a few days.


Look, I never wanted

to bring you into this, so...

It's hard.

I'll talk to you later, okay?

So, the nucleus is going

to hit here,

it's a large impact zone,

it's definitely worse

than we thought.

It's predicting

two or three feet tonight.

Patrol 2, this is rm.

What's your location? Over.

This is patrol 2.

I'm at the top of the trail.

How's your visibility up there?

Well, the viz

is really bad.

When you get up the top,

there are pockets below

of total whiteout.

We might wanna consider

shutting down

the mountain early.





Okay, baby.

It's you and me.

Yeah, okay.

Come on.

Oh, shit.



Ah, damn it!

How many ladders

does lemarque owe me

for being ten minutes late?

But this isn't my fault!

Get up.

I can't.

I'm sorry, what?

I can't. I can't get up.

Five more.

Hey, Eric.


Son, whoa, whoa, whoa.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.
