Arc’teryx presents a one in a lifetime trip to chase powder in China.

For all you who thought China is just cold, snowless and flat, here is your chance to be proven wrong. It´s looks pretty damn sick over there and the culture and people are just amazing. Maybe you don´t have to go all the way to Japan next time 😉

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.
