​VIDEO: Andrzej Bargiel Skis Pakistan’s Laila Peak

There’s a few mountains out there whose shape just screams “SKI ME.” Among those is one that stands deep in Pakistan’s Karakoram range, Laila Peak, a hauntingly beautiful spear of rock whose Northwest Face is a perfect 45-degree ramp of snow that drops nearly 5000 feet to the glaciers below. Not to mention that the face hangs over an equally sized cliff that requires a potentially deadly traverse to navigate. The peak saw its first summit ski descent in 2018 by a team of French skiers. Earlier this week, it saw another descent (although not from the true summit) by Polish ski mountaineers Andrzej Bargiel and Jedrek Baranowski. Bargiel is also fresh off another first descent of Yawash Sar II, and is best known for his first descent of K2 in 2018. Check out some footage from their day on the mountain.

Wow, that is a very unique ski path on a gorgeous mountain. Who better to do it than Andrzej Bargiel and Jedrek Baranowski. Thanks for sharing this TGR! Septic Replacement

I’ll be honest, I didn’t know there was a mountain like this in Pakistan. This is why I always follow TGR, you get to learn about new stuff! Thanks for sharing! Roofing Durham

This is what I love about sports you get to learn new stuff! I never knew Pakistan has a site for skiing. Hoping to visit there someday. Thanks! Septic Repairs

Great video edit and skills! I truly appreciate athletes that dare to overcome their limits. Thanks! Tree Services Durham

Well, it’s a magical time of year again. Sticky spring snow is being plastered to the sides of the mountains high above Chamonix, France just in time for the Aiguille Du Midi tram to re-open after a lengthy COVID hiatus. Of course, that means the locals are absolutely frothing to get after it, and that’s just what Tof Henry and Seth Morrison did on one of the biggest lines of them all: the Aiguille Du Midi’s Mallory Route. More of a climbing route than a ski line, it comes into rare condition

To cap off the season, he just pulled off a descent that he’s been dreaming of for his entire life: skiing off the summit of the Grand Teton.

​Snowbird Forced to End Season Early Due to Lack of Snow

Truth be told, we’ve gotta give ski resorts in North America A TON of credit for the season they managed to pull off this year, despite all kinds of challenges like COVID outbreaks, travel restrictions, crowding, and inconsistent snowfall. Despite the whole world not feeling very normal, skiing at least felt like an escape from it all. Well, even though they had a great run, Snowbird (one of the last resorts open in the country) was forced to cut their season short a few weeks early because
