Think you can climb Mount Everest 14 times in 7 months?
Do you ever find a show with 15 seasons and get hooked on it for years? If it’s time to switch it up, watch the film 14 Peaks, where Nepali mountaineer Nimsdai Purja sets out on a quest to summit all of the world’s 8,000-meter peaks in just seven months.
Each mountain is over 26,000 feet
Training for just one of of these peaks takes months or even years
Less than 50 people have summited all 14 peaks

That Northwest Pow Pow: BOURN - A Ski Film
Everyone who skis has their story of where it all started. For some, it was icy racing practices after school, others grew into the sport as they got older. This film follows skier Micah Evangelista, who has had skis strapped to his feet since before he could walk.
Follow along as he reflects on his upbringing, and explores the backcountry of Mt. Baker, Washington on a foot-powered journey. Watch Now on YouTube
