There's no break in sight for Nico Zacek, who, after fulfilling his morning duties of video reviews, photo shoots and TV interviews, now squeezes in a quick hour's worth of office work before heading back up the mountain to oversee the afternoon helicopter shoot at the Nine Knights feature. For Zacek, Nine Knights involves a constant back-and-forth between computer time and skiing time.
