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.
