With spring ski mountaineering season right around the corner, I've been thinking about some of the scary lines I've skied lately. This line from our trip to New Zealand was definitely a scarier one – the pink dotted line shows our descent route down the southeast face of Mt. Dixon, and I'm the dot that's circled. To see my short POV video edit of this, check out the YouTube link below and in my profile: https://youtu.be/CHOGHbDSRkICG tip: when I'm in an exposed position like this and need to keep moving, sometimes I'll sing little songs to myself so I don't freeze up. It helps take my mind off the severity of the situation and allows me to do what I'm trained to do. Photo: @rob.lea #skiaoraki16
