There are people who can do it all, and there are people who can do it all while hanging from a rope, 3,000 feet above ground in the middle of winter. All-mountain multitaskman Jimmy Chin is a celebrated photographer, filmmaker, and mountain sports athlete. He was part of the first American team to ski off the summit of Mount Everest and can claim a laundry list of first ascents on just about every corner of the earth. He’s directed award-winning films and has tattooed the covers of the biggest publications in the world. There’s not a more qualified person on earth to steer the Stance Adventure program. Driven by an apparent fear of the indoors, Jimmy is our spirit animal.
