Eric Larson skis to both poles, summits Everest inside of one year

Oct. 18th 2010

A big congrats to Eric Larson, who nabbed his ‘third pole,’ the summit of Mount Everest, on Thursday, in his quest to summit the world’s highest mountain and ski to both North and South Pole inside of one year. Larson’s Save the Poles Expedition was part of an effort to raise awareness about global warming by calling attention to its affects on the world’s most extreme places.

And while those places are seeing the effects (you can’t listen to the news without hearing about how quickly the polar regions are melting), the world’s extreme places are still extreme. Extreme enough to cause a number of moments of pause for someone who’s very accustomed to extreme environments.
