Davo Karnicar vs K2

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
As you may heard, this summer (probably in July) the renown alpine skier Davo Karničar will attempt to make a complete ski descent from the top of the K2 to the base camp. If succeeded it will be the first person to make a complete ski descent from K2.

This is the page where all the info will be held:

Who is Davo Karnicar:
- first person to ski from Mount Everest from top to bottom
- made ski descents from the all highest mountains in each continent
- skied from Annapurna, nort-east face of Eiger, east face of Matterhorn, Month Blanc...

Some videos:
1.) from mountain Dolgi Hrbet - Slovenija:

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Slovenian Davo Karničar is a legend - his exploits perhaps unheard / under-rated by many ?

Sadly there is a grim history of high profile skiers perishing on K2
Frederick Ericsson, Michelle Fait...
It is a serious mountain (the "mountainers" 8000m'er).
Dangerous and notoriously difficult peak even without skis... : Good luck!

Davor has cancelled his attempt to ski K2. Back damage and unfavourable conditions on the mountain, as he says, do not allow him to carry out his life project.

As he found in skiing from T1 at a height of 6000m in the base camp, his lighter back injury, which he had already got at the beginning of the expedition, does not allow him to actively relieve by the curves on the slope, and K2 is too demanding for improvisation and half-breeding.

Waiting to improve the backbone's condition is not an option, as this would require re-acclimatization, the end of the appropriate part of the season at K2 and also affect self-confidence.

Because at the same time, it is clear that the key passage in the southern wall is the land and K2 could not skied in Davos style from top to bottom without taking of the skis, the best Slovenian alpinist skier interrupts the departure and returns home without K2.

Edit: ugh... Google translate translation...

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

FYI, there is another guy attempting to ski K2 at the moment. It's Andrzej Bargiel; his FB fanpage: https://www.facebook.com/Jedrek.Bargiel/ + blog: http://www.andrzejbargiel.com/en/blog
