WATCH: The FIFTY - McGown Peak

Celebrating the halfway mark of the project (in number only), this special episode goes into showing how the research, ski community, and planning come together to make each line successful.

Joined by Tucker Patton, guide/owner of Triple Point Expeditions and photographer Ming Poon, the crew makes a blitz to Idaho and tackles an iconic couloir in the Sawtooth Mountains.


'The FIFTY' is a project to climb and ski all 50 lines chronicled in the book, "The Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North America". Over the next three years, Cody Townsend will be chronicling the adventures, challenges, and travels as he takes on a collection of the most aesthetic, spectacular, and hardest lines in North America.
