An amazing talk and Q&A with Reinhold Messner on the subject of sustaining alpinism as a way of life.
A short film on Christy’s Colorado ski mountaineering achievements, and what lies ahead.
We ran the 2014 Sierre Zinal 31k race in Switzerland and put together a somewhat shaky video from out on the course.
