Instead of a sunny beach, the University of Alaska Fairbanks "Alaska Alpine Club" spent their 2016 spring break on the scary freezing slopes of Mt. Sanford! Though the six have their share of funny accidents during their snowstorm expedition, the trip gets scary when Phillip Wilson nearly skis into a deep crevasse. Fortunately, Phillip escapes the dangerous fall because the team had extensively trained for these exact ice scenarios!
Though it's been several months since the dramatic close call, Phillip and the crew just recently posted videos from "Operation Gnarwhal" on social media.
