Cody Townsend continues his quest to ski all the lines named in the book The 50 Great Descents in North America, returning to Utah’s Wasatch Range in Episode Four. The descent is called Hypodermic Needle and Cody is again joined by Pep Fujas as well as  local backcountry maestro Ian Provo. It is a day-long mission that begins in the dark, the Needle providing its own unique challenges.

The Fifty is a three-year project and Cody plans to continue to drop episodes every two weeks during the current northern hemisphere winter. You can keep up to date on Cody’s progress through The Fifty instagram.
