Video: Searching for the Fountain of Youth

At some point, every outdoor athlete begins to feel the effects of time on their bodies. We donโ€™t recover as quickly, injuries are more common, and the speed and agility of youth begin to wane. But, that doesnโ€™t mean we have to give up what we love, just approach it in a different way. In this video, pro skier Mike Douglas makes the journey to Japan to explore options for helping him staying younger and more vital. He discovers plenty of options, including imported diet and exercise routines. But, best of all, he gets some advice from Yuichiro Miura, the man who climbed Everest at the age of 80.
