How Cody Townsend and Jeremy Jones Hiked and Skied Two Classic Descents in Alaska

“Peak Obsession,” a film by Bjarne Salen, is playing in the Backcountry Film Festival

Most skiers take helicopters to the top of Alaska’s most classic ski descents. Not Cody Townsend and Jeremy Jones. Last spring, they hiked and skied two incredibly beautiful descents in Valdez, Alaska: Meteorite and Pontoon. Both were big days on serious mountains, and the pursuit was captured on film by Bjarne Salen.

Watch “Peak Obsession” for the first time on YouTube—but don’t let that stop you from coming out to see it with all your friends at the Backcountry Film Festival. Tour dates are here.
