For most of us being a week­end war­rior means sneak­ing out of work a few hours ear­ly on a Fri­day to beat traf­fic and snag the best camp­site. For the folks in this short film it means fly­ing to Méx­i­co to climb and ski North Amer­i­ca’s 3rd high­est peak, Pico de Oriz­a­ba, in 55 hours.

Ski tour­ing is a phys­i­cal­ly demand­ing feat on its own, but to sum­mit an 18,491 ft peak with only few hours to accli­mate to the ele­va­tion is bold, dar­ing, and awesome!
