Filmed by Mike Marolt over ten years, 'Skiing Everest' tells the story of a group of close friends, lead by Mike Marolt and his twin brother Steve, who grew up in Aspen, Colorado and went on to become the first Americans to ski from above 8,000 meters (26,247 ft.) when they skied from the summit of Shisha Pangma in Tibet in 2000, and then challenged the highest slopes in the world on Mt. Everest. The film also tells the history of high altitude skiing, dating back to the 1930s; and includes interviews with Hans Kammerlander, who was the first to ski from the summit of Everest; Laura Bakos, the first woman to ski from the summit of an 8,000 m. peak; and Chris Davenport, the two-time world extreme skiing champion.
