Video: Skiing the Grand Tetons with Jimmy Chin

Last winter, climbers/skiers Jimmy Chin, Kit Deslauriers, and Mark Synnott traveled to the Grand Tetons in Wyoming to climb the legendary peaks there, and make ski descents of those mountains. This video, which comes our way courtesy of National Geographic, chronicles those efforts. For those that don't know, the Grand Tetons are amongst the most rugged and difficult in all of North America, and present some interesting challenges for even the most experienced mountaineers. See just what kinds of obstacles this team had to overcome in the short film below, which is both beautifully shot and quite inspiring too. Enjoy!
