I had come as close to impermanence as I could while still being alive. As time goes by, I find it more and more astounding what we were able to do.

The First Person Ever

Kit DesLauriers dreams big and follows through. Shortly after her second consecutive World Freeskiing Women’s Champion title, she became the first person in history to ski down each continent’s tallest peak, including Mt. Everest.

In a race against another talented mountaineer with the same goal, she accomplished this feat in October 2006 when she became the first woman to ski from the summit of Mt. Everest. She littered the journey with other major firsts, including becoming the first woman to make a complete ski descent of Vinson Massif, the highest mountain in Antarctica.

Kit shares her fast-paced, thrilling, insightful story of resilience, high consequences and inspirational firsts in her book, "Higher Love: Skiing the Seven Summits".
