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 :-)

Here it is on his Facebook page for example.

Does anyone know if Cody is going to do more summits this year, or any more films to come from last winter at all?

Last one I watched was released Dec 2021 36/50



The ones from last season are due out next week. I think he only had one left to do in the lower 48 states. So the remaining ones will be almost all Canada and Alaska.

I don’t know if he might delay them in order to do a tribute to his friend Hilaree Nelson who just died in an accident in the Himalayas (there is a separate thread on this).


Season4 incoming and dedicated to Hilaree...

I've hugely enjoyed this (over three winters), but would like to see a ticker on just how many are now left. Does it say anywhere? Can't see on The Fifty Project.

That's the confusing bit. There have been the short films too... So the numbers don't correspond. This time last year he had actually done 36. With six to show that winter (so 27 episodes aired, and three via short films). Head is hurting!

The ones that cover one of the lines give the number. Last one of The Patriarch was 36/50.
The bonus episodes aren't numbered.

Some of the lines don't count as he had to turn back. That could be why the numbering is off.

Highlights please? I've watched 3 or 4 of these, as chosen for me seemingly in random order by YouTube. Whilst they are quite entertaining, the format is becoming repetitive. Cody explains how he is in need of a challenge, along with his best buddy (insert xtreme US sports star name here). Points to snowy peak on far horizon, picks the most difficult way up, spends days or weeks slogging towards it. Suffers exhaustion, sunstroke, dehydration, vows to give up. Sleeps badly for 4 hours, carries on. Makes it to the top. Nice view. 2 minute vid of a bit of icy skiing. Am I missing something? He's a nice guy and its mildly diverting, but there must be more to it?

Try The Mountain Why (with Cody and Michelle Parker) a bit different to the rest of the series, and rather good.

@pmk, if you've watched 4 and not enjoyed it then I think that's probably not something for you! It's backcountry accessed on foot, it ain't going to change to make it more entertaining Wink

@pmk, you’ve just described backcountry skiing. There’s no rule that everyone has to like it. Personally, I enjoy it because it reflects my own experiences of that sort of thing (mostly much less challenging than what Cody is up to).

A mate of mine and I had just got back from a bit of messing about in the mountains around this sort of time last year when he posted one of his vids involving getting lost and bushwacking for hours while gradually having a sense of humour failure. We both thought it was hilarious but that was a lot to do with our own mis-adventures.

That said, some of his trips on the 50 are genuinely inspiring in the sense of "I'd love to do that and I might be able to"

Welcome to Snowheads.

No, there is nothing more to it.

It's repetitive because there are 50 lines to ski (it's from a book somebody else wrote) and quite logically it's largely the same process each time.

New Episode of @the.fifty.project is live! A return to the Sphinx...in a little bit different of conditions than last time...Link to episode in the bio as is tradition. ⁠

Lot of people to thank for this episode, but I gotta say, the crew at @pointsnorthheli were critical to going for this line. Hundreds of texts, phone calls, weather checks, snow checks and communication with the guides and operators at PNH was pretty much the only reason we could pull the trigger on such a strike mission. From when I first announced, the way the little ski community has been so supportive and directly helpful has continued to prove my thesis that skiers, snowboarders and people that define themselves in the mountains are the coolest people around. Thanks to all the crew from PNH for making this really f'in cool line possible.

@swskier, true. It was the 2 foot of snow to slide across with a 10/20/50 foot drop onto rocks that has me wincing!

I love ski touring. When watching Cody et all doing these lines I like to pretend to myself it it is just an extreme version of stuff I do. Sometimes it is really hard to keep up that pretence.

If you're an avid view of @the.fifty.project, you probably have noticed a lot less suffering and far more powder skiing. Pretty much the opposite of what people have come to expect with this series. Well if that bums you out, you're in luck. The suffering is back! Wednesday, a new episode of The FIFTY launches, Part 1 of the super iconic Bugs to Rogers Traverse with @tobinseagel joining and @bjarnesalen behind the lens. It's time to load up super heavy packs, sleep in the snow and walk 80+ miles from the Selkirks to the infamous Bugaboos.

Curses to the transatlantic time difference. It still hasn't dropped yet, so I'm guessing it will be mid afternoon viewing, and not lunchtime!
