The Denali Experiment: A Test of Human Limits

How does the saying go? It’s the journey, not the destination, that counts?

The short film above, The Denali Experiment, documents the gnarly expedition of some rock star skiers. Their goal? To summit Denali, the highest mountain peak in North America, and then ski down its steep slopes. The beautifully-shot film by Jimmy Chen focuses almost entirely on the journey up the mountain, a big 20,320 feet. For the skiers, the high altitude mountaineering was the hard part, the test of human limits. Not the trip down. Sit back and enjoy the journey.
