 Product Description

  Sheltered in a snow cave on Mount Elbrus, Dan Egan stares into the mouth of a storm on the tallest mountain on the European continent, a merciless mountain which claims more lives per year than Everest. In the belly of the beast, Egan takes stock of every moment that brought him here—the life of a Boston boy enthralled with self-determination and adventure. Egan emerges from the white haze of the storm to summit a climactic arc we see repeated across decades like waves on the ocean and peaks in the sky. The world-renowned pioneer of extreme skiing takes the story of his youth growing up in New England and artfully creates the stage for the simultaneous evolution of big mountain skiing and his journey on snow and sea. Dan and his brother John Egan traveled to some of the world’s most remote regions, following the geopolitical events of the 80s and 90s. They made first descents on the Berlin Wall, skied beside the Persian Gulf War, organized the 1993 Middle East Peace Ski in Lebanon. It was not enough to find the extreme limits of the sport. The Egan Brothers found their place in history as story tellers and renegades of the sport, willing to The true beauty in Egan’s story is his mapping of time and space amidst his travels. History unravels as Egan ties together his own family’s story, the ever-present mortality of his namesake, his grandfather’s involvement in desegregating Boston’s schools, and the rise of extreme skiing and technology into the new millennium. His release of White Haze promises a heavy dose of humor, suspense, thrill, and documentary, as 30 years of haze dissipates to clarity.
