The south side of Mt. St. Elias, located on the border of Alaska and Yukon Territory, has the longest vertical ski run in the world. From the ocean this mountain shoots up to 18,008'. Janelle Smiley, Jed Porter, and Mark Smiley started from the ocean, climbed to the top, and skied about 13,000' of Harvard Route.

All footage shot on site, during our ascent and descent.
