3 Summits With Speed Flier Aaron Durogati

Published on 11/28/2014

“I wanted to earn the mountain,” says Italian speed flier Aaron Durogati.

Flipping with the precision of a circus acrobat, Durogati’s wingtips brush by ice walls as he dips below seracs and emerges unexpectedly, only to drop onto the snow for a few casual turns. Given his ability to literally fly, Durogati makes every run a first descent, letting his skis slash faces that no one has ever skied before. If anyone has earned a thrill, it’s Durogati.

Published on 11/27/2014

This Thanksgiving, we thought we’d take a moment to say goodbye to summer and fall, and welcome winter with a few activities we don’t always do when there’s a blanket of fresh snow.
