Ice-kateers conquer Everest’s equivalent

The event challenged skiers to descend the equivalent of Mount Everest’s elevation.

The Ice-kateers, a team of 13-year-olds, raised almost $900 in last weekend’s Slopes for Hope fundraiser at Whitewater.

The event challenged skiers to descend the equivalent of Mount Everest’s elevation. Each team member skied 31,225 feet (9,517 m) for a team total of 187,350 feet (57,104 m).
