Storyline

Explorers Shawn Forry and Justin Lichter completed the first ever winter expedition of America's 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail from Canada to Mexico. They faced Arctic-like, subzero conditions in the High Sierra, extreme winds and overcame frostbite while traversing in snowshoes, skis and boots with crampons. Utilizing ultra-light techniques, they covered more than 20 miles per day and went more than 1700 miles without seeing another person on trail. They completed the trek in 132 days, faster than many complete the PCT in the summer. Inspired by the legendary John Muir and native ancestors who walked this land before them, the team documented their observations of a changing landscape amidst an historic drought and sought to better understand humanity's role in protecting the planet for future generations.

So disappointed
18 June 2020 | by thecanadianmindSee all my reviews

I was honestly looking forward to this seemingly unique journey on a well beloved, and well documented trail. This was not that.

Starts off as a pbs special on the history of the sierra mountains and john muir, as though this is the most important and only part of the trail one should pay attention too. Throw in some environment concerns and Aboriginal history, and 16 minutes have gone by.

Poor narration that is right out of a 1980s nature documentary adds to the discomfort.
