    "Some day" seems like now, or 2022 at worst.LOL

    Stumbled across this last night, not a bad watch. Bit of background fluff at the end though, shame there's not more skiiing shown from around Altay.

    The Central Asian giant peaks of The Pamirs have their dangers. The peaks look less technical to climb but severe AMS, crevasses, extreme cold and bad weather can and do kill people.
    One would have to be a gun at Alpine Touring technique to try to ski down a mountain such as this.

    Some good friends of mine leave next month for Club Med Yabuli, in the North East of China above North Korea. Apparently conditions are pretty brutal there in the winter, really cold but not much naturual snow fall.

    They were saying the ski industry in China is about to boom with the winter Olympics in Seoul next year and then the following games for 2022 in Beijing

    At least you exposed yourself, not a good idea in harsh environments though
