Video: Peak Obsession — Skiing the 50 Classic Ski Descents of North America

It takes a certain kind of dedication and perseverance to take on a grueling project and see it through to the end. Some would call it obsession, particularly when it ends up consuming your life. That’s exactly what ski mountaineer Cody Townsend discovered when he set out to attempt to ski every line detailed in the book The Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North America. On paper, that sounds like a fun, but demanding undertaking. In reality, it is wildly difficult and challenging on an insane number of levels. As you’ll see in this video, it also happens to be a grand adventure too. This is a short documentary film, so get comfortable and enjoy the ride. It’s a beautiful one.
