Description

Capturing the romance and risk of extreme big-mountain skiing, this non-fiction adventure follows 15-year-old Kye Peterson as he attempts to conquer the same mountain in Chamonix, France -- known as "the death sport capital of the world" -- that claimed the life of his father more than a decade earlier. Aided by some of the greatest ski mountaineers of the day, and followed by a documentary filmmaker and ski enthusiast, this book tells a story of surviving against nature, overcoming mental and physical challenges, and coming of age in a world of extreme adventure.
