From Denver To Skiing Mexico’s Highest Peak–In a Weekend

55 Hours in Mexico documents one nine-to-fiver's stubborn, stupid attempt to keep up with his full-time athlete buddies by summiting and skiing the third-highest peak in North America, Mexico's Pico de Orizaba, in the span of a single long weekend. Starting with a redeye from Denver to Vera Cruz, the crew leaves themselves just 55 hours to get from sea level to Orizaba's 18,491' summit, without acclimatizing, and make it back to the airport and on time for work on Monday.

This is such a crazy adventure - great work capturing the journey.

We’re pretty stoked that conditions have lined up to make a second Freeride World Tour stop in Ordino-Arcalis, Andorra possible. With COVID-19 canceling both the Hakuba, Japan and the Kicking Horse, BC stops for the 2021 season, this second Andorra event will serve to replace the Hakuba stop. If conditions allow, the Kicking Horse event will be replaced by a second competition day at the upcoming Fieberbrunn stop.
