Video: The Ski Descent Shaped by a Meteor Crash

….Or at least as some say. Meteorite Mountain, near Valdez, Alaska, holds one of the classic Fifty Descents of North America. As Cody Townsend attempts to ski all fifty, he heads to Valdez with Jeremy Jones for an attempt on Meteorite. Along the way, he learns that in the early 1900’s, locals recount a “meteor or possibly a UFO crashing into the peak”, and eventually creating the line that Jones and Townsend are after. Check out this awesome episode that documents what it takes to climb and ski two classic lines in Alaska. —ML
