This 15 minute short film from The North Face follows a diverse crew from different disciplines climbing and skiing Denali. It will be screening this weekend at the Telluride Mountainfilm Festival…
“Free-ride skier Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and big mountain snowboarder Lucas Debari step out of their elements and make an attempt to climb, ski and snowboard Denali. Sage and Lucas get a helping hand from a huge cast of seasoned and professional climbers and ski mountaineers from the North Face Athlete Team, including Hilaree O’Neill, Conrad Anker, Ingrid Backstrom, Jim Zellers, Emilio Previtali and Giulia Monego, as the two embark on the hardest expedition of their lives.”
Awesome seeing Sage and Lucas humbled by this expedition and successfully summiting the peak. Love the high-alpine jibbing sequences!
The film was directed by Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk, both highly accomplished climbers, mountaineers, and film makers. Jimmy Chin was the first American to climb and ski from the summit of Everest!
