Slovene Mountain Skier to Descend from Mt. Everest on Saturday

Kathmandu, 6 October - Slovene mountain skier Davo Karnicar, who wishes to become the first person ever to ski down the world's highest mountain, has reached the fourth base camp at an elevation of 7,950 metres on Friday. This is the last camp before the ascent to the top of Mt. Everest. As Karnicar told his team at the foot of the mountain, he and the two accompanying Sherpas are feeling great, so that there are no reasons why the descent should not take place on Saturday morning between 5 and 7 a.m. CET.
