Kit DesLauriers, Ski Mountaineer
JOURNEY THROUGH THE ARCTIC REFUGE, NORTHEAST ALASKA
Kit DesLauriers had a dream: to be the first person to climb and ski all of the Seven Summits, the highest peak on each continent. After attaining her goal with her ascent and descent of Everest, and after becoming a mother of two, Kit turned to explore North America’s greatest wilderness, the eight million acre Arctic Refuge. Join Kit and her team as they ski the mountains of the Brooks Range, towing sleds across frozen tundra where caribou roam and polar bear prowl. It’s a journey through wilderness, for the sake of wilderness, and a celebration of a landscape that could be lost if the region is opened to oil drilling.
