Surviving The Pacific Crest Trail In Winter

The Pacific Crest Trail runs 2,650 miles from Mexico to Canada, forcing hikers to navigate everything from desert to treacherous mountain passes coated in ice. It’s such a dangerous trip, no one has ever completed it in winter...until this month. Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray sits down with Shawn Forry and Justin Lichter, who just finished their trek at the Mexican border.

Outtake: Shawn Forry and Justin Lichter talks with Reno Public Radio's Anh Gray about the gear they used on their first successful attempt to complete the Pacific Crest Trail in winter.
