The Fifty is video series covering pro skier Cody Townsend’s quest to ski all of the lines documented in the book, The 50 Classic Descents of North America. In this episode Cody heads to Nevada to climb and ski a couloir known as Terminal Cancer, accompanied by his wife, Elyse Saugstad and fellow Squaw shredder Connery Lundin.  This line has been skied by many, including Cody, and in an attempt to claim it as a first descent, Cody and the crew take a different approach to skiing the infamous run.
