Friday brings us another episode of Ski the Himalayas, where the climbing/skiing team finally gets their expedition underway. If you’ve watched the last few episodes of the show, you’ve seen the team stuck in Jomsom – a small village in Nepal – trying to figure out logistics and even objectives. With no porters to help them reach their intended mountain, they’ve now elected to go after a different 20,000-foot peak and then ski back down it. The video gives you glimpse of this new goal, which is, like most Himalayan mountains, spectacular.
With a new plan devised, and permits in hand, the boys hit the road at long last. The first leg of the trip is actually a precarious drive in jeeps along a very rocky road. Looks like a true adventure!
