A Chinese surveying team reached the summit of Mount Qomolangma on May 27 to conduct a series of surveys on the pinnacle of the planet.
The event marked a crucial step in China’s mission to remeasure the height of the world’s highest peak, which scientists believe will enhance human knowledge of nature and help boost scientific development.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the first successful expedition to Qomolangma from the Tibet side and the 45th anniversary of China’s first accurate measurement of Qomolangma’s height.
Maybe you will ask, if we could ski down Mount Everest? It is very difficult but someone did it.
That is Davo Karnicar. He is the first person successfully to ski down Mount Everest. There was not a more accomplished ski mountaineer on earth.
Everest marked his pinnacle but also took its toll. During his first attempt, from the north side in 1996—which he aborted at 8,300 meters when the deadly storm chronicled in Into Thin Air blew in—Karničar lost two fingers to frostbite. In 2000, he slid 25 vertical feet down the snow-covered Hillary Step before narrowly arresting his speed.
Although we can’t ski on Everest, we can ski in a safe area. So what are the top skiing toys recommended? Let’s go!
