A short film by Cody Townsend and Bjarne Salen
Cody Townsend has set out on an audacious goal, a never been done before feat, to climb and ski all 50 lines chronicled in the book, Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North America.
Developed into a widely successful follow-along web series, Peak Obsession dives into the depths of the mindset behind the project. Told through the story of two of the most challenging lines in the book and joined by legendary snowboarder Jeremy Jones, along with cameraman Bjarne Salen, Townsend sets out on an adventure rife with challenge, exhaustion, steeps and a little bit of schadenfreude.
