Extreme Skiing Mt. Robson - Highest Mountain in the Canadian Rockies

Ski Mountaineering Decent of Mount Robson 3,954 m (12,972 ft)
by Updated December 1, 2014

Extremely unnerving first hand look at the steep ski mountaineering ascent and descent of Mt Robson by Reiner Thoni and Jeff Colvin. Bear in mind, Mount Robson is the most prominent mountain in North America's Rocky Mountain range at an elevation of 3,954m (12,972 ft); it is also the highest point in the Canadian Rockies. With no fall zones all around on the climb up and ski down, you have to be on your ski mountaineering game completely to make it safely down this imposing mountain.
