Lines of Control – “1st Descents in Kashmir” Ep II

Kashmir is not just mountains, shepherds and ibex. This week the crew rolls into the Gulmarg ski resort, which sits a scant mile from the line of control that separates India and Pakistan. Although the opposing military powers might be a little skittish, the skiers certainly aren’t. They take to the backcountry with gusto and find some crispy powder bowls and hidden tree runs. Tony Rossi SLAYS the Kashmiri powder. Kalen Thorien send long steep lines. Don’t miss Vanessa Aadland’s runs and Thaye Rich’s spins — the poor kid gave himself snow dreads from shooting so long.
