The Man Who Skied Down Everest is a documentary about Yuichiro Miura, a Japanese alpinist who skied down Mt. Everest in 1970. The film was produced by Canadian film maker Budge Crawley. Miura skied 6,600 feet (2000 m) in 2 minutes and 20 seconds and fell 1320 feet down the steep Lhotse face from the Yellow Band just below the South Col. He used a large parachute to slow his descent. He came to a full stop just 250 ft. from the edge of the crevasse. The 1970 Japanese Everest Expedition was a combined ascent of (a) the normal route (including Naomi Uemura who made the summit), (b) the first attempt at the South-West Face (this is the tall black face on the movie poster with the Y-shaped snowy gully), and (c) this ski descent. The film does not make this clear. Eight died during the expedition's ascent.
