Josh Daiek Is Obsessed With Skiing The Middle-of-Nowhere Nevada (Watch)

By

Josh Daiek (@joshdaiek) isn’t one of the most recognizable names in skiing, but the 39-year-old originally from the humble hills of Michigan can absolutely rip.

Daiek had some impressive finishes on the Freeride World Tour in his earlier days, but has transitioned his career to exploring big backcountry lines in Nevada’s expansive, but uncharted mountains.

His new project, titled ‘Mountain State’, shows him scoring first descents, skiing steep couloirs, and ascending 13,000-foot peaks in his passion to explore Nevada.

Check out Mountain State with Josh Daiek by Salomon TV below:

 

Salomon TV: “In pursuit of the endless journey to find solitude and challenging lines in the mountains, Josh Daiek finds himself smack dab in the middle of nowhere Nevada. Summiting 13,000 foot peaks, flashing steep couloirs and bagging first descents were all part of the allure, but it certainly doesn’t come easy for Josh and crew. Sketchy avalanche conditions, near-death crashes, unpredictable weather and season-ending injuries are just a few of the hurdles the crew faces while exploring the most mountainous state in the lower 48.”
