Bridging the Gap with Pep FujasAfter years of exploring Alaska’s mountains with helicopters, skier Pep Fujas sets out on foot, out of a remote basecamp, to explore the Tordrillo Mountains. Despite bitter cold temperatures, 3 a.m. starts, and long walks through massive, glaciated terrain, Pep shows why he’s one of the best skiers of this generation by laying his style and grace down on exposed spines and massive crevasse gaps.
