Rogue Elements: Corbet’s Couloir
Anyone who has ever skied or snowboarded Jackson Hole knows just how nerve-racking it can be to descend into the infamous Corbet’s Couloir, even in the best of conditions. Doing it in icy conditions on mountain bikes is nothing short of insane, and that’s exactly what we did.
Liv Along the Way
Ever since she first summited Mont Blanc as a teen, Liv Sansoz knew she would make her life in the mountains. In 2017, at 40 years old, Liv set out from her base in Chamonix, France to attempt to climb all 82 of the 4000-metre peaks in the European Alps in a single year. As she’s learned several times throughout her life, things don’t always go as planned.
For the Love of Mary
When 97-year-old runner George Etzweiler dons his lucky ancient green running shorts, he’s not just running to the summit of Mt. Washington, Etzweiler carries something else special with him: The memory of his late wife of 68 years.
Also, George is from State College! That makes him an honorary Pittsburgher!
In 1974 a small determined team built their own canoes, launched them into the Pacific, and became some the first people in modern history to canoe from Washington to Alaska up the Inside Passage. The Passage is a story about revisiting that journey, fathers and sons, and the wild places that define us.
