[VIDEO] The FIFTY – 41/50 – “One of the Worst Places on the Planet”

SnowBrains | BackcountryBackcountry

Nestled at the base of the highest mountain entirely in BC, Canada– Mt. Waddington– lies a perfect couloir. A white ribbon knifed through colossal granite towers set among an ocean of ice and snow. While Mt. Waddington is a prize for mountaineers, the Combatant Couloir is a prize for ski mountaineers. But what if the mountains, the ice and the permanent snow has changed so much, that exactly what defines the Combatant as perfect, is no longer true? Joined by professional freeskier Nick McNutt, the FIFTY crew heads up to one of the stormiest, windiest and what local legend Mike King describes as “One of the worst places on the planet” to ski a line that looks classic, but may not be classic anymore.
