‘The FIFTY’ Skis Through Summer: Cody Townsend Drops Bonus Reel

The FIFTY Project is all about skiing. You’d think that means winter and spring episodes, but not this time.

Cody Townsend’s The FIFTY Project returned this June with a bonus reel. Despite the challenges of a low-snow year, COVID shutting down the U.S.-Canada border, and a few more hurdles, Townsend is still getting out there on skis.

“From Montana to Alaska, Colorado to California, the third year of The FIFTY brings some amazing stories, the requisite amount of suffering, some classic laughs, and some backcountry education alongside some of the best mountain athletes in the world,” teased the FIFTY crew.

This is Townsend’s third season tackling the 50 ski descents list in North America. Full episodes from 2021 will be coming out this fall.
