Journey through the Arctic Refuge, Northeast Alaska

After becoming the first person to summit and ski down all Seven Summits, Kit DesLauriers headed to Alaska’s Arctic Refuge to hike and ski the highest peaks of the Brooks Range. If she could repeat any of her most noteworthy adventures, which one would it be?
