The Sky Piercer – Skiing New Zealand’s Mt. Cook

By: Ethan Stone October 04, 2018

Now in the super-gnar, I’m-a-skier-but-I’m-also-a-mountaineer, we-may-not-come-back-from-this-alive category, comes a new entry from CoLab Films for this fall’s ski movie trailer round-up. The Sky Piercer follows Sam Smoothy, Xavier De Le Rue, Nadine Wallner and Fraser McDougall as they attempt a daunting summit-and-ski on New Zealand’s highest peak, 3,724-meter Mt. Cook—known to the Māori as Aoraki.
