A Skier’s Journey to Japan


Expecting ski porn? Don’t. The third season of Jordan Manley’s ongoing series, A Skier’s Journey, makes its debut with this, Japan, and Manley shows even more patience and commitment to gentle narrative than he has in the past. This is, indeed, a journey — a visit to a foreign land, where Siberian storms create a winter monsoon and underground rivers heated by volcanos carry away the stupendous snowfalls. Aside from an experimental black and white segment (which uses lamentable music), the video is a flawless mix of travel, skiing, and powder research.
