ALL I CAN:
Team work is everything on a trip like this, you know. It's difficult thing to come out here, to get out in these big glaciers.
There's a lot of long lines where we would hike up as a pair. Just watch over each other and help each other climb and ski.
To be able to work to get to the top of something with a good friend and share up moments, skiing the line
with them, after them, before them, get to the bottom... Just share up and enjoying it is incredible.
Boys, first day ever!
You should hurry up with those stands and help me with this wall.
If we were getting longer out here we wouldn't be getting anything done.
This time you are alive!
Yeah, well ideally hopefully the downclimb off the ridge is super straightforward. You saw what we went through today.
- Everything is reasonable.
- Are you just going to take this ridge all the way over?
Yeah, like you can go around this peak and then the next peak, you can sneak the back and you get on to the ridge, it looks nice, and then you can't see the other sides.
So we don't know if we can ski down that face and then climb up or make that ridge walk.
We have to leave like, almost at like midnight or one o'clock in the morning pretty much.
The biggest unknown factor is just getting over there.

As you've gathered the weather briefing is taking place. The total weather consideration and the case all of the weather favorable...
Weather can make or brake a test shot. That's why you want to know up to the last moment just how you stand with the elements.
So many different kinds of snow. It's one of the most beautiful thing on Earth.
Different every day you go up and your line is changing, snow is changing. It's a new sensation every day.
The clouds are still light. Seventy thousand feet now...
You have a grandstand seat here to one of the most momentous events in the history of science.
For the sake of all of us, and for the sake of our country, I hope that you'll join me in wishing this expedition well.
Storm skiing probably my favourite kind of skiing. Just being in the woods when it's snowing is a calming feeling, I think.
Being surrounded by 100% nature and the total quietness.
Just a different feeling, you don't really get that in too many places and we are lucky to live here.
Get out of there, guy! Get out of there!
This is Seb, I want you to go ahead and stay there and we are gonna continue the drop.
I definitely think that nature offers the ultimate testing ground for man to challenge himself.
So many options and so many variables have free skiers looking up at a line.
And it's guaranteed that each would have their own way of reading the terrain. And it's guaranteed they would each ski differently.
Tough to really say - you are being a really environmentally conscious person if you are a skier, you know?
Last year, living in the mountains in a cabin and getting up there by your own means of ski touring or hiking.
The fact that we can get anywhere out of these valleys is only because logging and mining is there.
It's basically created access for us to get up there. But without those roads we wanna be there.
Love doing that. This is my whole life, exactly what I want to do. And I got so much enjoyment out of it.
There's no way you can really say you feel bad for doing what we doing.
At the same time it would be great if we were not wrecking as much by getting this amount of enjoyment out of nature.
