Intermission: Snow Day

It's the first day of December and like these crazy skiers, it's time to embrace winter's glory.


It's the first day of December—the month of holidays, winter cheer, hot chocolate, hot buttered rum, and snow. While most of us will not be trekking up the mountains of Alaska this winter, here's a group of hardcore skiers, snowboarders, and adventurers who clearly love the snow and all that it brings. Take 15 minutes today and voyage up the 20,320-foot Mount Denali with the North Face crew as they go in search of a few perfect runs in virgin snow. Mountains are the great big playgrounds of the world, and here's an expedition to prove it.
