Eberesuto dai kakko

Original documentary of the 1970 Japanese expedition which set out for Mount Everest with the purpose of having ace skier Yuichiro Miura ski down an upper stretch of the mountain. Miura skied 6,600 feet (2000 m) in 2 minutes and 20 seconds and fell 1320 feet down the steep Lhotse face from the Yellow Band just below the South Col. He used a large parachute to slow his descent. He came to a full stop just 250 ft. from the edge of the crevasse. The footage of the film was later used by the Canadian film maker Budge Crawley to produce a different documentary titled The man who skied down Everest (winner of an Academy Award).
