Greg Hill's mountain moves

SuuntoSki — 11 April 2014

In the space of 31 days he skied to the equivalent of space and back. Last month Greg Hill clocked an incredible 100,628m – more than 10 times the height of Mt Everest. 
For anyone curious to see how Canadian ski mountaineer achieved the feat, below we show his daily gain, which reveal his super-human performance. Day after day, Greg skied for up to 10 hours to cover between 3,000m and 4,000m of vertical.  

Of course this doesn't answer the bigger question of how he was physically able to do it and for that only Greg can provide the answer.

“It was a big mission,” says the 38-year-old Suunto ambassador, recovering at his home in Revelstoke, British Columbia.

“It was as hard as anything I've done, waking up every morning and getting out there.” But he says the knowledge that at the top of every climb lay an awesome descent kept him going.

“It was the best human powered powder month ever! It was ridiculous. This was 97% great skiing!”

Check out where he went, his daily climbs the full stats of Greg's March Madness project on the links below. Looking for a highlight? Greg says his best day was March 11th. “I climbed three different summits and five different great lines,” he says.

And the worst? March 6th when warm weather conspired to create nightmare ski-touring conditions. “My skis were weighing probably 20kg there was so much snow stuck to them,” says Greg. “That was as bad as it was.”
