Alaskan Survivalists Nearly Die on the High Road Home
National Geographic Channel
Ultimate Survival Alaska (Sunday - Discovery Channel, 10pm) - On the final leg of their journey, the explorers summit a massive
mountain of rock and ice in the Juneau Icefield.
As a final farewell
gift, Alaska throws a punishing winter storm their way. Expert mountain
climber Willi Prittie takes control of the crew from the start. The men
try to stay together and alive as whiteout conditions worsen,
gathering essential survival materials along the way. They proceed up
the icy ridges, but one wrong step nearly plunges one of the explorers
over the edge.
