Who Is James Morrison? Hilaree Nelson Partner
James is a well-known ski mountaineer. His ski goals have evolved from annual trips to Chamonix and Canada to climbing and skiing the world's highest mountains. Beginning with high points in Ecuador and Russia.
Similarly, he advanced to 8,000-meter peaks, drawn by the enormity of the challenge. In 2015, he made an attempt on Makalu, the world's fifth-highest mountain.
In 2017, James and his partner Nelson became the first Americans to ski down India's 21,165-foot Papsura Peak after skiing 14 of Telluride's most difficult couloirs in just over two months with Hilaree. Jim and Hilaree then traveled to Denali, Alaska, where they climbed the Cassin Ridge and skied the Messner's face.
