Outside Online has posted an article entitled The No Fall Zone which takes an depth look at the climb and ski descent of Everest by Kit DesLauriers, who you’ll recall became the first American to ski off the summit of Everest, and the first person to ski on each of the Seven Summits as well.
The article is reprinted from the January issue of Outside and is an excellent read for anyone interested in high alpine climbing and skiing.
And before I get someone posting a comment, yes, I do remember that Davo Karnicar is the first person to actually completely ski down each of the Seven Summits.
