Come aboard for three minutes of thundering skiing with Sam Favret through the Aiguilles Rouges of Chamonix, no gimmicks or tricks and no music. Instead, the sound of the elements immerses you into the tracks of this local Chamonix rider.
For years Kieren D’Souza has been planning a new speed record on the 53-kilometre route up Mt. Friendship, a peak towering above Manali, the town in Himachal Pradesh where D’Souza lives. Usually, teams rope up, carry ice axes, and take four or five days to reach the summit and get back to base camp. If something goes wrong, you’re on your own. Hoping to set a snowball in motion, Kieren sets off with the goal of inspiring Indians to experience mountains in a different way.
Return to El Guayas
Award-winning filmmaker Ben Stookesberry joins up with Red Bull paddler Rafa Ortiz and long-time expedition kayaker Lane Jacobs to attempt the first descent of one of Colombia’s wildest rivers: El Rio Guayas. Ben, Lane, and Rafa reach the river with a perfect flow and perfect weather. In the middle of night two, rain pours down, leaving the team stranded in the most remote part of the canyon. With rumors of armed groups in mind, they paddle blindly into the now flooded unknown river.
