Rivers of Ice Unveiled
by Steph Spencer | June, 2013
So yeah, when you’ve reached the summit of Mount Everest five times, what else is left to do? Make a few mind-blowing IMAX films about Everest. Then what? Mountaineer David Brashears turned his attention to making a multimedia, interactive experience about Mount Everest that lets the average person explore the world’s highest peak without ever touching a rope or strapping on crampons.
Everest: Rivers of Ice is a website launched by GlacierWorks and Internet Explorer that lets visitors explore Everest — from landing in a plane at Hillary-Tenzing airport all the way to the summit.
