Skier’s Steep Line Shows the ‘Pinnacle’ of Big Mountain Alaska Skiing

Get stoked and watch Caite Zeliff and friends heli-ski big lines in Alaska.

Caite Zeliff started her first Alaska skiing trip with a simple goal. “Don’t be a pain, don’t stress people out, keep it on your feet, ski smart,” she said in the new clip from Teton Gravity Research. Thus, Zeliff heads out in search of (apparently) moderate skiing, with veterans Griffin Post and Johnny Collinson.

Mesmerizing terrain, intimidating circumstances, and windy summits soon inspire Zeliff to push the limit. One thing about limits: Most of the time, there’s no way to tell where they are without breaking them.

Runtime: 4:10.
