Ultimate Survival Alaska 2|极地生存战士


by Marcus Maurice

The ultimate prize is survival.

  Do you know what happens when it snows in Taiwan? Thousands of people decide it is a good idea to get into their cars to rush to the top of a mountain only to find that, instead of actual snow, there is just a little bit of slush on the ground. Many are disappointed while waiting for hours in the traffic jam back down the mountain because they feel like they still have not witnessed snow firsthand.


  Alaska, on the other hand, is one of the coldest and most unforgiving places in the world. Many parts of Alaska have not even been touched by humans. In Ultimate Survival Alaska 2, a program on National Geographic Channel this month, a contest goes deep into the heart of Alaska and tests the perseverance of team members. For starters, four teams of really tough men and women who are mountaineers, military veterans, endurance athletes, and woodsmen are taken into the middle of the frozen forests of Alaska and dropped off. The only things they have with them are their raw emotion, incredible intelligence, die-hard ingenuity, and the gear on their backs.


  These roughnecks battle frostbite, hunger, dangerous animals, and more while they are navigating terrain that camera crews can barely follow them in. They go over frozen rivers, barren ridgelines, and even cross high mountain peaks. These men and women are like the original explorers of unknown territories because, for this show, there is no lavish grand prize of thousands of dollars or the promise of a month-long vacation in the Bahamas. Instead, by winning the epic competition series, the only prize is survival.

 

极地生存战士

最终的奖品就是活下来。

  你知道台湾下雪的时候会发生什么事吗?数千人决定开车冲上山顶是一个好主意,但是上山后才发现根本没有真正的雪,而只有地面上一点点融雪而已。许多人都塞在下山的车阵中等待数小时而备感失望,因为他们觉得自己还是没有直接看到雪。


  另一方面,阿拉斯加是世界上最寒冷以及环境最严峻的地方之一。阿拉斯加的许多地方甚至还没有被人类探索过。在本月国家地理频道的《极地生存战士》节目里,有一场深入阿拉斯加心脏地带,并要考验团队成员毅力的竞赛。一开始,四队非常强悍的男性和女性被带往阿拉斯加冰冻森林的中心,然后工作人员会把他们放下,这些人当中有登山客、退伍军人、耐久力十足的运动员和樵夫。他们唯一带的东西就是他们率真的感情、令人难以置信的智慧、抵抗到底的足智多谋,以及他们背上的装备。


  当这些极地战士横越摄影人员几乎无法跟随的地形,他们要和冻伤、飢饿、危险动物和其他更多的挑战搏斗。他们越过冰冻的河流、贫瘠的山脊线,甚至翻过高耸的山峰。这些男性和女性就象是在未知领域中拓荒的探险家,因为在这个节目中,没有数千美元的豪华大奖,或是在巴哈马群岛长达一个月假期的承诺。相反地,赢得这场英勇系列竞赛的人,唯一的奖品就是活下来。
