This was a serious mountain expedition movie. I really appreciate what
was done here. Climbing Everest in 1970 (the actual date this was done)
is one horrifically challenging thing, but attempting to ski straight
down 40-45 degrees of hardened snow and ice rocks is unreal. Kudos to
Miura for showing the world what it is like.
This is a documentary about Japanese skier Yuichiro Miura who launched
an expedition to ski down Everest's South Col face (26,000 feet). His
expedition consisted of 800 men and 2 tons of equipment. The poetic
narration (done by Douglas Rain - the voice of HAL in 2001: A Space
Odyssey) is taken from his diary and writings.
The first thing to note is that Miura is an amazing individual. He was
the world speed record holder in skiing in 1964 and became the oldest
person to climb Everest in 2003 at the age of 70.
Just getting to the top of the South Col of Everest is an achievement.
The tragic deaths that occurred during the expedition only underscore
the risk involved. Performing the physically and mentally demanding
activity of vertically skiing down the face with a parachute is
amazing. He is lucky to be alive.
This is not a high-energy, rock music-filled extreme sports movie. Most
people would probably die doing something like this. This is about a
disciplined, world-class athlete near the peak of his skills doing
If you like Everest expedition movies, definitely watch this.
