Nice video. Will be very interesting to see the lines they choose on some of the class 5 stuff in the San Juans.

Pretty cool to see this, and also to look over his completed list. He's made a lot of progress towards completion, impressive.

Nope, not ranked. You can see their list here. Jagged and Dallas are probably the biggest challenges; I assume they'll be rappelling off the summits of those two.

Did anyone see Warren Miller's Flow State last year? There is an entire section with him and a few others heli-skiing in the San Juans. Wonder if he'll count anything from that on his list or if is going to climb and then ski.

Here's a few screen grabs from Flow State. Anyone recognize any of these San Juan peaks?

Yep, I was referring to Jagged, Dallas, and Teakettle. I havent done those particular peaks, but I see they did rap Teakettle.

It would be more or less impossible to ski off the summit of Teakettle or even huck it. There'd be no way to get a run at it so you'd literally have to just hop off the top and the only terrain feasible for a landing is more or less flat ground 35 feet below. I can't see them skiing off the summits of Jagged or Dallas either. I have a feeling at least those 3 will go down as the "Sunlights and Wetterhorns" of the Centennial ski project. Still cool to ski from below the class 5 sections though. Beats hiking down!
