Video: Mike Foote - Skiing and Skinning 61,000-Feet of Vertical in a Day

Posted on the 20 April 2018 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
A few weeks back I shared the story of Mike Foote, an ultrarunner who had set a new record for skiing the most vertical feet in a single day. Over the course of a 24 hour period, he managed to skin up and ski down Whitefish Mountain Resort 60 times, notching an amazing 61,200 feet (18,654 meters) before he was through. The video below captures the essence of that endeavor more so than anything I could write about it. If you want to see what this mission was like for Mike and his support team, check it out below. It is agonizing, thrilling, and inspiring, all in one go.
