    Skiing Everest

    Les Guthman (2009)

    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.

    Ultimate Skiing on Mount Rishiri DVD

    Ultimate Skiing on Mount Rishiri

    Yasutoshi Hattori (2013)

    Mount Rishiri (1721 meters) floats in Japan's northernmost sea. In February, when seasonal winds blow from the sea, winter is at its harshest. Daisuke Sasaki, one of Japan's most famous backcountry skiers, dares to ski down 1400 meters of unforgiving cliffs, some with a gradient of 50 degrees. But even before he can ski down, Sasaki must first face the ordeal of climbing the mountain with ski equipment on his back. This documentary follows Sasaki as he challenges-and ultimately succeeds in-skiing down the snowy mountain, despite the unavoidable risk of avalanches.

Sixty years later on the anniversary of the ascent, Al Jazeera's '101 East' presenter Steve Chao, retraces Sir Hillary’s footsteps to Everest Base Camp at 17,598 feet.
