Miura is Alive
One of the user reviews has
Miura, himself, was killed not long after his Everest adventure, doing much the same thing. I am not absolutely sure, but I believe he was attempting to ski down Denali.
Actually, Miura is alive. In 2003, Yuichiro Miura and his son Gota climbed to the summit of Qomolangma (Everest) from Nepal. In 2008, both will attempt the climb from China. More information is available at http://www.snowdolphins.com/ share
