Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Lhotse and north couloir skied

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Not really my cuppa but for those that enjoy this kind of adventure the North couloir of the 8500 meter Lhotse has been skied off the summit by Jim Morrisson and Hilaree Nelson

"thenorthfaceThis morning, @hilareenelson and @jimwmorrison became the first humans in history to ski the Lhotse Couloir. After summiting Lhotse, the fourth highest mountain on earth, Hilaree and Jim made a 7000 ft descent. We couldn’t be more proud. The crew is back at Camp 2 getting some much needed sleep after a 17 hour push to the summit and the ski descent. More photos to share when they’re back at base camp. A huge thank you to the team from the @khumbuclimbingcenter for being a part of this expedition. Photos by @dutchsimpson and @nickkalisz. #LhotseSki2018 #neverstopexploring"

@davidof, yep, very impressive line, I always wondered what Jim Morrison had been up to since 1971... turns out he has been busy re-inventing himself Happy

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

Pretty cool.

Think a few folks have skied near it, over the years. But never down the actual chute. It's steep, at 45-50 degs for most of the way.

Lhotse face? Completed it mate.

But seriously, thats incredible and insane at the same time. Can't help feeling when I read things like this that these people really must have a death wish, one tiny mistake and its all over. I cant really work out if I admire them or not really.
