10 years ago today no one was going any further, or higher on a snowboard.

After a 12.5 hr climb to the summit of Everest the 23yr old disappeared down the Hornbein Couloir(still unskied I believe).

Marco Siffredi definitely is an inspiration and perhaps a cautionary tale. Growing up in Chamonix I can only imagine his perspective.

Rest In Peace.
