Alpenglow Sports ~ Winter Film Series #2: Adrian Ballinger, Everest No Filter 2.0
Alpenglow Sports is excited to announce the second installment of the 12th annual Alpenglow Sports Winter Film Series, presentedy by davisREED Construction, with Adrian Ballinger's" Everest No Filter 2.0." Join us at 7pm on Thursday, December 7th at Squaw Valleys’ Olympic Lodge for this epic night of Everest adventure.
"Everest No Filter 2.0" documents Adrian Ballinger and Cory Richard’s second attempt at a summit of the 29,029 foot-tall Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen. The dynamic duo originally set out to conquer this peak in 2016, and while Richards made it to the top with no supplemental oxygen, Ballinger was forced to turn around just hours from the peak. This year, the pair set out once more, determined to get Ballinger to the summit sans oxygen. After significant preparation and acclimatization, the pair began their remarkable 43-hour summit push. This time, Ballinger achieved his goal, joining the elite few who have summited Mount Everest without oxygen tanks.
Thanks to breathtaking photography from National Geographic photographer, Cory Richards, and stunning videography from Esteban “Topo” Martinez, we can get a glimpse of what climbing without oxygen looks and feels like. Adrian Ballinger will join us for the night to give us the inside scoop into what this year’s trek meant to him, and how it felt to finally experience the summit of Mount Everest, unfiltered. Join us for this must see night of high altitude adventure.
An amazing raffle from Adrian's sponsors will benefit the Sierra Avalanche Center. Participating companies include Eddie Bauer, La Sportiva, Tecnica, Blizzard, Kaenon and Goal Zero!
Doors open at 6:15pm and an early arrival is encouraged in order to assure good seating. Fireside Pizza Co. will be on-hand with delicious dinner offerings to enjoy before and during the show.
