Maria Hidalgo knows: once the spirit of snowboarding is lit, it can’t be put out.
Maria Hidalgo has been on the World Cup tour since she was a teen, becoming the only Spanish rider to podium in an international slopestyle event. But it’s her vulnerability in front of the documentary lens, sharing her emotional battle to get back on snow after a triple knee injury, that embodies her bravery and mental strength.
