You may recall that skier Greg Hill is attempting to ski more than 2 million vertical feet this year, which is the equivalent of 5500 feet per day. As of today, his website has him listed as having completed 1,130,286 feet, so with less than five months to go, he still has a lot of ground to cover.
I caught this video of Greg over at the Goat Blog earlier today, and it is both beautifully shot and gives us all an idea of what he is up to. Besides, when it’s August in the northern hemisphere, and the temperatrues are hitting triple-digits, a little ski-porn goes a long way.
