In B.C., there lies a classic line that links Whistler and Blackcomb mountains via a 235-kilometre long traverse. The ski tour first done over the course of many days in the 1970s has now become a test-piece for ski mo racers seeking speed and records.
After a few months of the most ski touring in his life, Cody Townsend set off to test himself and attempt to capture the FKT (Fastest Known Time) for completing this traverse. Guest appearances by previous Spearhead Traverse FKT holder Greg Hill and superhuman mountain man Killian Jornet.
