Adventure Skiing Around the World
In 1981, Pat Morrow set the world altitude record for telemark skiing when he cranked breathless turns off the top of 7,500m Muztagata in the Pamir range, Xinjiang region of China. At this stage in his adventure career, he had already climbed three high peaks, using skis on two of them. He would go on to use skis on eight more high peaks, and on dozens more exploratory tours in exotic mountain locations, from snorkling through the chest-deep yuki in the Tokachi range on Japan’s Hokkaido island, the steely-ice slopes of Kamchatka’s highest volcanoes in Russia, using penguins as ski gates on Antarctica’s King George Island, making a first ski descent of a 4000m peak just hours from downtown Santiago, Chile, and many other prime skiing locations around the globe..
This A/V show reflects Pat’s passion for skiing at any altitude or latitude, and opens audiences’ eyes to the potential for seeking out and savouring ski turns all over our small blue planet.
