Aoraki: First Ski Descent of Mt. Cook
- NOV 25, 2004
- About this Video
- In November 2004, New Zealander Todd Windle, Austrian Axel Naglich and Frenchman Baptiste Blanc did what most would dismiss as impossible. Adding to an already long list of thrilling mountain conquests, these extreme skiing daredevils became the first humans to ski off the south peak of New Zealand’s highest mountain, Aoraki, or Mt. Cook. As if the sheer terror and danger weren’t enough to get their adrenaline flowing, this fearless trio took things a step further by declining any assistance in the way of air transport. A truly unique and amazing triumph.
