Cody Townsend's "The Fifty" project, in which he intends to ski all of the lines in the book 50 Classic Ski Descents of North America, has already seen him lay down tracks on Denali in Alaska and Mt. Superior in Little Cottonwood. For the third installment in the series Cody and company headed to Nevada's Ruby Mountains, home to one of the continent's most aesthetic couloirs: Terminal Cancer.
Cody skins towards the couloir's bottom, from which point he will begin bootpacking. @westonshirey photo.
Not content with merely skiing the classic line, Cody broke out his monoski and snowblades for parts of the descent, adding an extra level of comical difficulty. What's next for Cody? Chugach spines on a no-board? Stay tuned for the next episode to find out.
