Is there anything in the mountaineering world that accomplished Russian climber Denis Urubko hasn’t done? He has climbed all fourteen 8,000 metre peaks without supplementary oxygen, claimed the speed record up Mt. Elbrus, won the Piolet d’Or twice and has summited two 8,000 metre peaks in winter. Only K2 in winter remains for this seasoned, ambitious mountaineer. Urubko joins us in Banff for an engaging interview with award-winning writer Bernadette McDonald.

Presentation followed by films in competition.
