Liv Along The Way

Since she first summited Mont Blanc as a teen, Liv knew she would make her life in the mountains.

Since she first summited Mont Blanc as a teen, Liv Sansoz knew she would make her life in the mountains. She was twice crowned World Champion in sport climbing, and eventually expanded her professional horizons to mixed climbing, ski mountaineering, and base jumping. In 2017, at 40 years old, Liv set out from her base in Chamonix, France to attempt to climb all 82 4000m peaks in the European Alps in a single year. As she’s learned several times throughout her life, things don’t always go as planned.

2 of the world's best mountaineerers are back with a new season of steep skiing action and advice.

2 of the world's best mountaineerers are back with a new season of steep skiing action and mountaineering advice. Tony Lamiche and Alex Pittin have been visiting three zones at the start of this season, which so far has consisted in a lot of precipitation and wind. A lot of heavy precipitations and record strong winds in the mountains have pushed Tony and Alex to explore these three zones in search of the areas with less avalanche risks. Those important amounts of snow bring a certain humbleness and alertness and imposes a cautious attitude whether it be in the forest, in the transition zone or in the alpine areas whilst steep slope skiing.

50° North - The Movie

Alex Pittin and Tony Lamiche have turned steep slopes into their preferred playground.

Alex Pittin, former French Alpine Ski Team member and Tony Lamiche, former French rock climbing and ice climbing champion, have turned steep slopes into their preferred playground. Ski-mountaineering, steep-slope skiing, extreme skiing are disciplines rarely practiced, but brought to near-perfection by the two athletes. There's a reason why Tony & Alex prefer to call it "mountain skiing"; it requires going down steep slopes that certain people climb, it also requires a lot of technical knowledge, as well as a good understanding of this unique environment

Out In The Sierra

Kalen Thorien, professional skier/adventurer, on a 270 mile, solo high traverse in the Sierra Nevada

Kalen Thorien, a professional skier and adventurer, decided to spend her summer on a 270 mile, 18 day, solo high traverse in the Sierra Nevada, a mountain range in the Western United States. Your immediate question is probably “Why?”, well, Kalen probably says it best, “We spend a lot of time seeking answers, hoping for outside forces to propel us into an elevated realm of thinking, the simplicity of a walk in the woods can provide the impermanence that we so often overlook. Out there it is uncluttered and simplified.”
