ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A couple in the Valley will attempt to climb Mt. McKinley this winter.
One week from Monday, Christine Feret and Artur Testov plan to set out to scale the Alaska range.
The two work as a team in both their professional and personal lives.
Testov is a skilled woodworker; Feret helps handle the business.
"That's probably why we argue actually because we're 24 hours a day, together doing stuff," Feret said laughing.
When they're not working with wood, they're preparing for their next outdoor adventure.
"We're just like down to the last leg really so they're just crazy days, we try to keep training," she said.
In one week, the couple will attempt to climb Mt. McKinley.
For Feret, it will be a first, but Testov summited McKinley in a winter climb in 1998.
"This time I have my nice French girl so it's gonna be more fun to do this and I want to share with her all the beauty of these things," Testov said.
