This episode is a little different with minimal climbing and nothing radical on the descent as this “Classic” line is a ski tour traverse that links Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains in British Columbia, Canada.
The ski tour first done over the course of many days in the 1970’s has now become a test piece for ski mo racers seeking speed and records for the 23-kilometre tour. Over the past few months The Fifty Project has lead to Cody doing the most ski touring he’s done in his life and he feels he has a good chance to take the FKT (Fastest Known Time) for completing this traverse. Does he do it?
