Daily Grind: Ski Iceland with filmmaker Jordan Manley

Filmmaker Jordan Manley is behind season three of the series “A Skier’s Journey,” and he recently released the Iceland episode, where skiers Chad Sayers, Forrest Coots, and Chad Manley visit a nearly abandoned island in the remote region of Westfjords. The guys say they went there partly to explore the remnants of a culture that inhabited the island for a thousand years, living in harmony and sustainably within nature, only to desert it by the end of WWII. If this sort of one-with-nature exploration doesn’t interest you, then perhaps the trios’ precipitous descents–the kind that make your hands sweat just watching them from the safety of your desk–will. For season three’s Dubai episode, where the guys ski in Dubai (yes, Dubai), click here. And for the Japan episode, click here.
