24 hours of vertical skiing

Yesterday I went up to Mt Ashland to support @ryanghelfi as he attempted to break the North American vertical ski record. His goal was over 62k in 24 hours. Although he fell short, he still climbed over 58,000 ft and covered 78+ miles within a 24 hour period. Simply insane.

Just imagine hiking from Lithia park to the top of mount Ashland…over 10 times…continuously…and on skis. Way to give it all you had Ryan. What an effort it was.

Oh, and props to @mt_ashland_ski_area for the fresh groomers through the evening all the way to 11:30pm 🤘

Almost to the summit of Mt Ashland, then back down and repeat
