A Skier's Journey

Kashmir - A Skier's Journey: Ep1

The first in a series of 3 ski-travel episodes, skiers Chad Sayers and Tobin Seagel travel halfway around the world to Kashmir to ski the high altitude Gulmarg gondola, only to find the snow pack is a ticking time bomb. Never the less, they find safe areas to ski and discover the beauty of Kashmir and the Himalaya - its people and its landscape.




La Grave - A Skier's Journey: Ep2

The second in a series of 3 ski-travel episodes, skiers Chad Sayers and Tobin Seagel continue their worldly winter journey arriving in La Grave, France - home to the Téléphérique La Grave-La Meije, a quirky yet stalwart cable car that transports skiers to 3200m, high in the Southern French Alps.

Here, the terrain is wild, unmarked, and unpatrolled - a stripped down, raw version of big mountain skiing. With 2km of vertical drop, a simple ski run journeys through a labyrinth of glaciers, couloirs, and forest glades. Local freerider Bruno Florit, and UIAGM mountain guide Joe Vallone share how unique and special La Grave is, but also reveal the respect a skier must have for the mountain when in search of such deep rewards.




Freshfield Icefield - A Skier's Journey: Ep3

The last in a series of 3 ski-travel episodes, Jordan Manley returns home to Canada, visiting the iconic Canadian Rockies. Set to the backdrop of Banff National Park and the Freshfield Icefield, Manley and the Sherpas Cinema crew round out their ski season, climbing and skiing for 6 days out of their picturesque base camp.
