Mount St. Elias is a story about four very different characters, three of them men, and one a mountain 18,000 feet high. A dramatic and awe-inspiring documentary following three of the worlds greatest ski mountaineers in their attempt to realize the longest ski descent of the world.

Set against the backdrop of Alaska's dangerous beauty, Mount St Elias is about a visionary borderline experience where unparalleled physical and mental pressure pushes them to the absolute limit. They find themselves in situations where heroism cannot easily be distinguished from folly. Situations which can only be mastered if rationality is abandoned and in which courage as well as trust in their own abilities and last but not least luck are used as guidelines.

Two Austrian ski alpinists Axel Naglich and Peter Ressmann as well as the American free ski pro Jon Jonhston are facing this breathtaking challenge. Mount St. Elias is a movie that finally shows how mountains unite lethal danger with delirious happiness.

Check out the full documentary currently on Netflix Instant. The real footage in the documentary is absolutely crazy.
