A Skier's Journey: Season 2 Trailer

By

Whistler based photographer and film maker, Jordan Manley is back at it with Season 2 of A Skier’s Journey presented by Arcteryx.com, Goretex, and VIO. Season 1 of A Skier’s Journey was some of the best web content to ever hit the internet and Season 2 looks like it will deliver as well. Jordan will be releasing three episodes this year (EP1: Friends of Shames, EP2: Baffin Island, & EP3: Argentina).

Here is a Look Back at Season 1 

Kashmir – A Skier’s Journey: Ep1

The first in a series of 3 ski-travel episodes (Ep2: La Grave – A Skier’s Journey / Ep3: Freshfield Icefield – A Skier’s Journey), 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.Presented by Gore-tex andArcteryx.com.

LA GRAVE: A SKIER’S JOURNEY EP2

The second in a series of 3 ski-travel episodes (Ep1: Kashmir – A Skier’s Journey / Ep3: Freshfield Icefield – A Skier’s Journey), 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.
