In this episode of the Fifty, a project by Cody Townsend to descend the 50 best lines in North America, the pro skier links up with Len Necefer and Connor Ryan to ski Utah’s Mount Tukuhnikivatz in Moab’s La Sal range. The trio gathers around a campfire and on the skin track to share the beliefs about the sacred lands on which we recreate. Plus, they find some remarkable skiing along the way.
