Climbing Mount Everest in itself is a mammoth feat and one man took it to another level by doing something extraordinary. Yuichiro Miura has climbed the mountain three times- the last time being at the age of 80! This documentary chronicles the time when he skied down Everest on May 6, 1970. Featuring breathtaking snow-laden shots of the world’s highest mountain and telling a story of unflinching determination, The Man Who Skied Down Everest became the first sports-based film to win an Academy Award for Best Documentary.
