Overview
On October 5, 1982, Laurie Skreslet became the first Canadian to reach the peak of Mount Everest. His lifelong dream of scaling the world's tallest mountain had become a reality, but it was an achievement that came with a heavy price. Laurie and his expedition faced hidden crevasses, blinding snowstorms, horrible altitude sickness and deadly avalanches that claimed the lives of team members throughout the ascent.
