They did it! Watch the video “Annapurna, Thank You for Being Alive” (with English subtitles), which reflects the realities of the expedition to climb and ski Himalayas during Autumn, 2018.
They call it “Ciller Mountain”, “Much-Feared” — Annapurna has a lot of names. All thanks to the bad reputation earned over the past decades. According to statistics, the ratio of ascents and the deceased on it is 2/1. Annapurna, 8109 m, “Goddess of Fertility” in Sanskrit, is deemed the beautiful and terrible mountain in Himalayas.
As a part of “Death Zone Freeride” project, two Russian alpinists and skiers, Vitaly Lazo and Anton Pugovkin, attempted to climb and ski on the slopes of the most dangerous mountain in September-October, 2018. The task was extremely difficult: to climb Annapurna’s North Face and to descend on skis (all without supplemental oxygen and additional support) and to make a film about ascent as a result.
