Glen Plake Survives Deadly Himalayan Avalanche Written by Mike.S on September 26th, 2012

Skiing legend and K2 Skis Brand Ambassador Glen Plake is lucky to be alive after being swept away during an avalanche that struck he and his party’s base camp on Mt. Manaslu in the Nepalese Himalayas. Though we are all happy he is alive and telling the tail, others were not so lucky. Our hearts go out to those who lost their lives and loved ones.

These are the harsh realities seeded within a sport that drives us to push the limits within environments that we can not control. However reckless it may seem to some, it is in taking the risk that helps us appreciate life.
