  1. Καλησπέρα και καλή χρονιά! Αν μπορούσα να προσθέσω κάτι στα πολύ σωστά λεγόμενα του Γιώργου (GiGi) είναι πως θα πρέπει να προσέξεις ιδιαίτερα και τι γίνεται με το instep (κουντεπιέ) του ποδιού σου. Δεν υπάρχει κάποια συγκεκριμένη τιμή σαν μπούσουλας αλλά ανάλογα αν είναι ψηλό ή χαμηλό, θα χρειαστείς διαφορετική μπότα για καλύτερη εφαρμογή.
  2. Along this goal to ski all fifty of "The Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North America", there lies a few cruxes. A few lines that stand out as the ultimate test for skiers. Lines that have seen one, maybe two, ski descents in history. One such mountain that is on that list is Mt. St. Elias in Alaska. Mt. St. Elias is a mythical, foreboding peak that jumps straight out of the ocean, 18,008 feet into the sky. It's renowned for violent storms that come straight off the northern pacific and slam into its icy steeps. It is unknown how many people have ever stood on the summit, but it is known that most people that try, fail. In May of 2021, Cody Townsend, Dan Corn, Nick Russell and cinematographer Bjarne Salen set out to climb and ski this Alaskan beast. This is the tale of their adventure.
  3. Deep in the Montana wilderness lies a legendary line, skied first by some legendary ski mountaineers. The line, The Patriarch, sits deep in a rocky cleft on the cliff strewn North face of Glacier Peak. Chock full of exposure, steeps and overhead hazards, Cody is joined by two of the world's best ski mountaineers, Hilaree Nelson and Jim Morrison, to navigate the technical dangerous line. On an unusually cold late spring day, they're met with sub-zero temps, rocky rappels and butt-puckering steeps en route to a successful ascent and descent of a line that rarely gets skied. This is line 36 of 50 of The FIFTY completed by Cody Townsend. The FIFTY is a project following Cody Townsend as he attempts to climb and ski all fifty of the lines and mountains chronicled in the book, "The 50 Classic Ski Descents of North America."

  5. So you want to ski some big backcountry lines... So much of the process to climbing and skiing big mountain objectives is predicated on the research and planning that takes places in the weeks and days leading up to your adventure. This episode explains some of that process and shows how trip planning can be the difference between success and failure in the mountains while going out to attempt to ski an Idahoan classic line, the north face of Devil's Bedstead.

  6. In the never ending quest to make The FIFTY more difficult, Cody Townsend is joined by legendary rock climber and free soloist Alex Honnold to attempt to link together the lowest spot in North America, Badwater Basin (-282' below sea level) with the highest spot in the continental United States, Mt. Whitney (14,505' above sea level) via a 135 mile bike ride linked to a climb and ski of the Mountaineers Route on Mt. Whitney. Alex is no stranger to sufferfests and joins in on a long time goal of his own, but done in a manner that he is not very familiar with...on skis.

  7. On the heels of a massive sufferfest in Montana, Cody Townsend and cinematographer Bjarne Salen, hurry down to Idaho to catch a favorable avalanche and weather cycle to attempt a line deep in the Idaho wilderness north of Sun Valley. Armed with a borrowed snowmobile, enough equipment to survive a week in the woods, some bad beta and the desire to check the line of the list, Bjarne and Cody go out on a mission filled with good vibes, great laughs and some damn fun turns. This is Episode 29 for The FIFTY, and line 32 of 50 completed by Cody Townsend.

  8. In the NW corner of Montana, a ten-thousand foot mountain rises out straight out of the thick forest. Mt. Stimson dominates the skyline like a giant shark tooth turned upside down. The SW Face of Stimson, first skied by Pete Costain and Andy Zimet in 1997, is a five-thousand foot, steep, exposed and sustained face that guards all falls with a three-hundred foot cliff at the bottom. It's a challenging ski line to begin with, but guarding the mountain is a nine miles approach filled with thousands of deadfall trees, thick forests and nearly impenetrable willows. Add in a narrow canyon, a slick cobblestoned creek that must be crossed hundreds of times and no defined trail and you have the single hardest approach for any ski line so far in The FIFTY series. Joined by snowboarded Nick Russell, Cody Townsend and cameraman Bjarne Salen embark on a three day sufferfest of epic proportions. This is Episode 28 for The FIFTY, and line 31 of 50 completed by Cody Townsend.

  9. A tour of the newest tool of The FIFTY, built by Alpine Vans LLC. This van was designed to handle the harsh cold of winter, the remote trailheads of The FIFTY and the thousands of miles spent chasing 'The Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North America'. See what it takes to build a van to survive winter on the road, the new technology made to insulate and build a lightweight van and what accessories are necessary for a van. Take a look inside and see what makes this van, the "Ultimate Winter Van".
  10. The FIFTY all started with a book. A book that pays tribute to the most aesthetic, boldest, most iconic and most 'classic' backcountry ski lines of North America. In a first ever interview with all the authors of the book, "Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North America", Penn Newhard, Chris Davenport and Art Burrows divulge how they picked the lines they did, what went into the creation of the book and how it's standing the test of time. To pick up your own copy go to: http://www.50classicskidescents.com In addition to the interview, Cody gives an update to the happenings of The FIFTY in 2021.
  11. The FIFTY continues...But with a twist. The goal was simple, ride bikes, loaded down with 100 pounds of climbing, skiing and camping equipment, over 1000 miles to ski three of The Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North America. A tiring adventure and a sufferfest of course, but in the context of an ongoing global pandemic, a nation divided by chaos and a populace on the brink, a simple adventure throws the simple act of adventure into question. Why purposely suffer? Why selfishly pursue adventure? Why go into the mountains at all? All questions that a month long adventure begins to throw into your mind. Starring Cody Townsend and Michelle Parker, "The Mountain Why" is a ski adventure unlike any normal escape to the wild. This is a short film in The FIFTY series and line 28, 29, and 30 completed for The FIFTY, a project following Cody Townsend as he attempts to climb and ski all fifty of the lines and mountains chronicled in the book, "The 50 Classic Ski Descents of North America."

  12. The FIFTY involves a lot of driving and the customized adventure rigs are at the heart of the project. Cinematographer and ski mountaineer Bjarne Salen hand built this custom interior of a Dodge Promaster van to live off the grid, sleep in cold environments and to work, charge camera gear and rest for the big days in the mountains ahead. If you want to know how to build a van for skiing, this is it.
