Altai mountains climbing videos - Altai mountains China - A Skier's Journey


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. Presented by Arc'teryx in association with Gore-Tex.
