The incredible ski mountaineer Greg Hill has made history once again, this time by ascending (skinning or bootpacking)  TWO MILLION vertical feet in a calendar year.  That is more touring/mountaineering  than most of us will do in a lifetime! And what goes up, must come down…that means a lot of skiing, in ALL conditions.  There must have been some tough days in there somewhere, but the Suunto cranked over the 2 million mark under bluebird skies in knee-deep Selkirk Powder, with friends and family shredding at his side.  This is an outstanding feat of fitness, endurance, and perseverance.  Way to go Greg!

And later, in May, earning some vert in the Rockies.
