If you aren’t familiar with Greg Hill and his quest for 2 million vertical feet in one year then you can study up on it here @ Backcountry.com. Once you’re done with that, check out this video that Greg’s friends and family put together for him as he closes in on his goal. According to the post by Backcountry.com yesterday, Greg has logged 1.9 Million and has 9 days left to crank out the last of his mission. Skiersrealm is pulling for ya Greg, good luck. We know you’re gonna make it!
It’s down to the wire. Greg Hill has just nine days left to complete his goal of climbing 2 million vertical feet while ski touring this calendar year. That means he has to log just about 10k every day for the rest of the year. No problem for a fit and driven maniac like Greg, right? But after a really long year of really long days, he’s feeling a bit worn around the edges. And there’s always the weather to deal with…
Greg’s good friend Francois Desrosiers made this short film for Greg’s 35th birthday last weekend. It’s nine minutes long, and it’s worth the watch. It’s an insider’s look on Greg’s mission, including interviews of his best friends, his wife and kids, and his mom and dad.
Good luck, Greg! We’re cheering for you.
