Ski The Himalayas S3E12: Climb Up, Ski Down!
The final full episode of Season 3 of Ski the Himalayas finally gives the team, and the audience, what we've been waiting for – namely climbing and skiing on Thorung Peak, a 6157 meter (20,200 ft) mountain in Nepal. After enjoying some fresh powder at about 19,000 feet, the team rests up over night, then goes all the way to the summit, where they enjoy the view just long enough to step into their planks and start skiing back down. As you can imagine, the scenery is once again spectacular in this episode.
