Watch A Skier’s Journey – China:
From skiing into volcano craters in Changbaishan to watch the building of wooden skis with horse hide skins for hunting in the Altai Mountains to exploring the manmade snow of China’s modern resorts this episode of A Skier’s Journey is one that everyone should watch.
Could China be the next global destination for ski culture and backcountry skiing? Probably. Share this with your friends if you daydream about skiing in China.
Official Description from Vimeo:
Skiing as sport is in it’s infancy in China, a phenomenon of the country’s exploding middle class. As a means of survival, however, it is thousands of years old, a stone age hunter-gatherer technology born in the Altai mountains where China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan and Siberia merge. On a vast trajectory that spans 11,000km of Northern China, Chad Sayers and Forrest Coots touch down into the rich past and dizzying future of these two respective Chinese ski cultures. As one rapidly expands, they find the other is at risk of disappearing.
