Dubai: A Skier’s Journey EP2 S3

Submitted by InfinityList

In 40 degree heat, in the largest sand desert on the planet, Chad Sayers and Chad Manley go looking for the one of the world’s strangest of ski environments: Ski Dubai. In the midst of a city of dizzying ambition, this ‘local hill’ climbs 60 vertical meters out of a luxury shopping mall. Inside the frigid, air conditioned space, they find a dedicated ski community of desert-dwellers, growing in the unlikeliest of places.
