Growing up a few hours from the closest ski resort, Cody Townsend was not especially destined to become a pro skier. Weekend after weekend, from ski racing to freeriding, Cody found his way to Salomon and started to shift towards ski-touring and freeriding. Today, he's taking on the 50 most iconic lines in North America, attempting to climb up and ski down these lines.
After one winter and a half, Cody (and his friends) have checked 27 of those 50 lines, but what could have been a 3-years project while now have to be delayed because of the global situation. Still, Cody knows that this is just a halt, and he will continue his adventure very soon.
