Hypervoxels and ParticleFX....make an emitter, add a wind, play with it...and you can get a good swirl...then play with HVs...theres plenty of presets for you to start off with...
how do you want to do it? comp it with video? is your person green screened or anything? ...is there a 3D person?
youll have to do some sort of trickery!:)

He is green screened and will probablly be thrown in with it, right now i have HV's growing with a camera fly around and kinda through looks sorta like smoke it might work, but the wind idea sounds more like a keeper it depends what the video editor wants it to look like i guess but thanks i can play with it.

...or you could use Wind Path and just spiral an emitter around a clip mapped poly with the video of him on it, so you can do it all in 3D...
but yeah depends on the type of smoke...for a ski vid? so do you mean powder or puffs of smoke? or a trail of smoke like a cigarette?
