The FIFTY | Episode 2 Mt. Superior, Utah

The FIFTY is a project by pro skier Cody Townsend to climb and ski all 50 lines chronicled in the book, “The Fifty Classic Descents of North America” by Chris Davenport, Penn Newhard and Art Burrows.

The prep work, travel, team-assembly, line-scoping, avalanche assessment, risk-management, gear-prep, decision-making, weather, banter and teamwork. Plus there’s always a celebratory beer to be shared on a truck tailgate at the end. Episode 2 Mt. Superior, Utah
