White Air is an action-packed 2007 drama about the competitive world of snowboarding. Alex Crow (Riley Smith) was once on top of the world. A talented and ruthless athlete, Alex excelled in the fierce world of X-treme snowboarding. For a while it seemed he might become a professional, but family drama and self-doubt distracted Alex, and he instead took a mechanic's job. Now Alex is coasting through life, unsatisfied by his troubled relationship with his girlfriend, Christie (Dominique Swain). He still halfheartedly pursues his dreams of becoming a snowboarding champion, but consistently loses local competitions when he cannot land his jumps. Alex starts wondering if he should stop trying and forget about snowboarding entirely, instead focusing on his girlfriend and his stable if boring mechanic job. It takes the timely intervention of Pete (Paul Logan), a talented and ruthless trainer, to revive Alex's spark and get him back where he belongs.
