I’m always trying to keep up to date on the latest news in ski mountaineering. Dave Watson has made it his goal to ski K2. While he did not make it to the summit (no one did this year), he did succeed in skiing the upper slopes of K2 where none have skied before. So, kudos to Dave Watson!
Dave Watson posted this recently on his Facebook page:
“Expedition to climb and ski K2, became the first person to ski the upper slopes of K2. Skied from 8350 (bottleneck) to Camp 3 (7300m) rappelled the Black Pyramid and House Chimney, skied 6500m down to 5200m (ABC)“. If you have Facebook, you may be able to check out the pictures Watson posted from his expedition by viewing his album.
