Join Luke and I on the first of what hope are many special ski trips to Nepal. Like our model with Himalaya Alpine Camp in the Indian Himalaya, this is a cost effective trip with a price tag of $2400 for a 16 day expedition. Our plan is to use horse support for the beautiful trek into base camp. From there, Chulu Far East and its 6059m summit become attainable. We’re really excited to visit and ski in Nepal at this time of year. This trip is perfect for adventurous folks looking to get off the beaten path, enjoy cultural immersion in the Himalaya, and ski a truly stunning Nepalese peak. Questions about if this trip is for you or any other details? Contact Luke or myself and we’ll get you sorted asap. We will ski the left skyline. Ski Mountaineering of a 6000 meter peak. Chulu Far East has seen previous ski descents and is a surefire success story for skiing a 6000 meter peak in the Himalayas. This trip is a great one for those aspiring to ski at the 7000 and 8000 meter mark. -Brennan Lagasse, Luke Smithwick
