Our big mountain aficianado Lucas Wachs is on the forefront of exploratory big mountain skiing and adventuring. For his latest effort—Volcano Voyage—Lucas and friends set out to climb and ski a number of the volcanoes on the US side of the Pacific Rim. What he and his friends came out the other side with is nothing short of astonishing. Watch now.
“From the end of May to the beginning of June, my friends and I set forth to take the time to ski, and explore the volcanoes in [Oregon] and neighboring states. It was a time that was very well spent with friends in the mountains. Who do you bring on an adventure like this? None other than your buds who help bring you to the top of the mountain and smell your rotten feet at the end of the day (jt’s okay, you are smelling their feet, too). This voyage is one that is made by many each spring to reach the top of these eroding crumbly mountain tops. For reasons that I suggest you go and find out for yourself, for each time you get out and spend time on these mountains it gives a chance to tap in to the beauty of the world along with yourself and your partners. I hope that this voyage of ours can inspire to sculpt one of your own.”
