WATCH: The Dude Who Skied K2 Just Posted Footage

As they say….video or it didn’t happen. Well it most definitely happened and Polish ski mountaineer, Andrzej Bargiel, became the first person to successfully ski K2 at age 30.  He summited the 28,251ft peak Sunday and basically turned around and ripped it, giving him the most epic first descent in modern history and cementing himself in the books of Himalayan mountaineering and skiing. Here’s what he had to say in a Red Bull article:

“I’m very happy that I’ve managed to ski down the summit of K2 and get back to the base safely! I started to climb K2 at 4 in the morning on Sunday. The weather was good. Some problems appeared when I reached the peak and started to ski down. It was very cloudy and I had to wait for it to clear up at Base IV because the next phase of my downhill was going to be very difficult and technical on an extremely steep wall. I feel huge happiness and, to be honest, it was my second attempt, so I’m glad that I won’t be coming here again.”

Massive congratulations to Andzej Bargiel. He just started posting videos on his FB and Insta. Here’s whats been published so far (make sure to skip right on the instagram posts for multiple videos and pictures):
