Snowkiting, skiing, ice-climbing and paragliding on one of the biggest mountains in Alaska at the ends of the earth. This is an epic undertaking that takes three friends from Munich on a truly amazing adventure.

“Alpine mountaineering has many facets. The aim of the Blackburn2014 project was to add even more to it. The combination of fun and extreme sports, snowkiting, paragliding and ski mountaineering makes this project unique and uncomparable in style. In the spring of 2014, Philip Kuchelmeister, Sebastian Bubmann and Andreas Hillmer headed to Mt. Blackburn in Alaska. The 4996m high, glaciated volcano in the Mount St. Elias Range should provide the perfect setting for this ultimate snowkite project. The Mt.Blackburn team made great use of the lightweight, small packsize, low-wind flying capabilities and powerful pull of the Flysurfer PEAK to achieve their snowkite goals during this project.”
