A team of skiers from America are ready for an attempt to ski down the slopes of K2. They intend to ski the Abruzzi Spur since there has been many avalanches down the Cesen, which has made that route not safe. The only parts that they will not ski are the Black Pyramid and The Chimney. These are famous and dangerous parts of K2.
Earlier in the summer Michele Fait died while skiing on the lower slopes.
