Remember Greg Hill? Back in 2010, we followed his attempt to climb and ski 2 million vertical feet (610,000 meters) in one year. It took him all 12 months, but he was able to achieve that goal. Now, he’s back with another ambitious project that will push him to the limits and certainly test his endurance. In March, Hill hopes to climb and ski a total of 100,000 meters, a massive number for a single month.
This would be a big enough challenge on a well groomed trail at a nice resort, but that isn’t what Greg has in mind. He’ll climb and ski in the Canadian backcountry, taking on some tough mountains and even making a few first descents. Even more impressive, he won’t repeat a single hill, but will instead move on to new challenges at all times.
Greg says that he isn’t sure if it is even possible to pull off his big goal. He knows that injuries, weather, avalanches and other unexpected challenges could prevent him from completing this challenge. But, he will push on to see if he can pull it off none the less. To do so, he’ll spend every day in March climbing and skiing mountains, with the hopes of getting to that big 100,000 meter numbers.
Good luck Greg! You’re going to need it!
