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.

Great accomplishment, not film
4 May 2019 | by jscottrauschSee all my reviews

To be fair, we acknowledge that there's probably no camera filter or film approach that can capture the life on a thru hike, especially for one like this. It's not the same as a grand free solo or any summit attempt. Honestly though, we (3 of us) couldn't stay awake. It was the very slow start and the narrators' unenthusiastic voice. A better element would be Shawn and Justin's relationship- the good, the bad, and the ugly; the training prior to the journey; and key lessons learned for others to know in any thru hike or winter survival.
