This is not my definition of “fun day” but it is great to test yourself to see what you’re able to do. So feel great of this day doing the hamster at @tustenskiheiser during 24h. I felt good and bad, we spend many hours on our headlamp but also ski some pow during the 23.486m. Thanks to @romsdalrando, Emelie, Jordi and Joan for all the help !

Kilian Jornet just smashed the world record for most human-powered vertical skied in a 24-hour period, managing 77,000-feet in 24-hours over the weekend.

The previous record of just under 69,000-feet was set by Norwegian Lars Erik Skjervheim in May 2018. Prior to that, Montana based ultra-runner Mike Foote held the record, at 61,000-feet.

This goes someway to further proving that Kilian Jornet is, infact, superhuman. Unbelievable!
