Video: Solidarity Peak, Alaska

Two videos in two days? Yes, that’s what living in the shadow of the Sundance Film Festival will do for you.

This one is a video of a single run, Peak Solidarity, in the Wrangell-St.Elias Mountains. Before skiing this peak I happened to see it in a photo book and of the entire book, this is the one that really stood out as it is such a beautiful, classic pyramid peak. It has a 5,000′ plus ridgeline that snakes all the way up it, but aside from that, it is steep and intimidating all around.

A special thanks goes out to Paul & Donna Claus of the Ultima Thule Lodge, as well as Ruedi Homberger and Retro Ruesch for making this happen.

The video was shot with a VHoldr Contour HD 1080 camera which I had just picked up and was playing around with the settings on. Unfortunately, the snow is a little washed out, but you get the idea – deep, soft and fluffy.

I'm Andrew and I specialize in steep skiing in remote locations. I've chased first descents on all 7 continents and I'm currently looking for a new one to add to the list. When not skiing I design mountain equipment and write about my adventures at


Nice skiing experience dude! Like you, I also love to look for a resort with high mountain slopes and exciting terrain to exploit my skiing skills.
