VIDEO: Faces of Dav - The Explorer (Part 1)

With the intention of finding new terrain to ski, Chris heads north of the Arctic Circle to the archipelago of Svalbard, Norway with Ingrid Backstrom, James Heim, Michelle Parker and long time friend and photographer Christian Pondella.

The fjords of Svalbard are best accessed by boat, however shortly after departing from port in the 67’ foot Arctica II, the crew is hit with a massive storm swell.

But really...."how often do you get to go on a ski trip and bring your sailing gear?" 

Check back on December 4th for the next drop of Red Bull's "Faces of Dav".
