Is ‘traverse’ really the French word for ‘no skiing’? Get Cody Townsend’s take in this schlep-happy episode of ‘The FIFTY.’
Canada’s famous Bugs to Rogers Traverse covers over 80 miles and 30,000 vertical feet of skiing. For most backcountry touring types, finishing it takes more than a week.
If you didn’t know, now you know: Cody Townsend strongly dislikes traverses. What will he do on one of the most grandiose non-vertical outings of them all?
Tune in to the 40th episode of “The FIFTY” to find out. Listen especially around 90 seconds in, as Townsend delivers a litany of the route’s challenges that made my thighs hurt and my feet cold just listening to it.
