Ski Touring the Karakoram



  Yannick Graziani photos

Sometimes we get carried away in our own little volcano-skiing corner of the Pacific Northwest and forget that there are mountains with snow all over the world.

Meanwhile, people like Christian Trommsdorff (our guide last winter in Chamonix) and his climbing friends Yannick and Caroline are getting the goods in places like the Karakoram Range of Pakistan. Skinning up unnamed 6,500 meter peaks and laying down some sweet tracks . . . check out their report (in French, mostly) here. A little climbing, a little skiing . . . your typical mountain guide's holiday, right? Just thinking about adding 10,000 vertical feet or more to our normal ski touring elevation makes me dizzy.
