Behind the Line - Christina Lustenberger’s Couloir

Even when she’s on an exposed near-vertical line, Christina “Lusti” Lustenberger arcs turns like she’s racing GS gates. The former World Cup ski racer turned ACMG Ski Guide has garnered a reputation for high-velocity skiing in big mountain terrain, and last winter, while filming for Make Believe, was no exception. Lusti demonstrated her technical prowess on a series of alpine missions in the Coastal Mountains of British Columbia alongside fellow North Face athletes Ian McIntosh, Nick McNutt, and Sam Smoothy. Her most notable descent of the trip was a particularly dicey couloir requiring a sketchy boot pack. Watch as Lusti navigates the no-fall zone terrain while skiing cool, calm, and collected.
