A Skier's Journey to Dubai

"I'm on the edge of the largest sand desert on the planet, where every night, it snows."

So begins the narration in the second episode of filmmaker Jordan Manley's series "A Skier's Journey." Skiers Chad Sayers and Chad Manley travel from the 100-degree Fahrenheit desert of Dubai to the Mall of the Emirates for a chance to ski 200 vertical feet of artificial snow made from desalinated water that coats the inside of a sloped tunnel cooled by a powerful and extensive electrical system. It's a cool flick, in the sense that it should make you think.
