Friends Rob, Pete, and Jack were stuck in their bunk house, their crampons and ice axes taunting them. They had spent months training to summit and ski Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Western Europe. But conditions were bad.
Still Rob wouldn’t take no for an answer. Not from the guides, nor the mountain. He proposed risky solutions. Pete embraced them, determined to bag the peak before his fortieth birthday. Jack regretted ever agreeing to the ascent—he’d only come for the glorious ski down.
Then a scary Canadian walked through the door and announced, “I’ll take you to the top.”
Was he their salvation or damnation?
“Blue Ice, White Powder” is a true story and quick read, delivering the challenge of a fifteen-thousand-foot mountain in your lunchtime. If only the peak had been that easy.
