The film »Skiing 7 Summits« features a story about a first-ever skiing expedition to the 7 highest mountains of all continents, including the first ski descent from Mt. Everest. Slovenian extreme skier Davo Karničar, the first man ever to accomplish such a feat, completed this project in November 2006.
His extraordinary skiing descent from Mt. Everest in year 2000 has likewise not been repeated yet. Other skiers, including American skier Kit DesLauriers, managed to ski only sections of the descent or were either assisted by rappelling or carried their skis on foot across the cruxes of the route.
