Archival footage, skiing, ski, wetern history As she pilots a light airplane high over the magnificent mountains and valleys of northwesternWyoming, Virginia discusses her past occupations, her passions, and her personal philosophy--"'s probably the most constricting force there is. You can try anything if you eliminate the fear of consequence."
