Cody Townsend has set out on an audacious goal to climb and ski all 50 lines chronicled in the book, “The Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North America”. Peak Obsession is a stand alone film premiered at film festivals around the world and dives into the depths of the mindset behind the project told through the story of two of the more challenging lines in the book, Meteorite Mountain and Pontoon Peak near Valdez, Alaska. Joined by legendary snowboarder Jeremy Jones, along with cameraman Bjarne Salen, they set out on an adventure rife with challenge, exhaustion and a bevy of lessons to learn along the adventure.
This short film made in collaboration with Teton Gravity Research and Team 13 Productions.
