Watch A Skier’s Journey – La Grave
Here’s the second episode of the first season. Jordan Manley, Chad Sayers, and Tobin Seagel of A Skier’s Journey takes us to the steep slopes of the skiing mecca of the southern French Alps – La Grave.
In a place with “no rules,” this film is inspiring and life changing. Thanks for taking us to another world with four full months of craziness and incredible skiing…
Official Description from A Skier’s Journey:
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.
Reminds me of one of my favorite ski films Steep…
