In the latest episode of Spy Optic's See Happy, Wiley Miller visits Gulmarg, India with Level 1 Productions and Forecast to explore the Himalayas in Kashmir and capture footage for his annual film segment. When he gets to India, however, he finds warm temps, mediocre snow conditions and a heavy military presence near the border of India and Pakistan. He soon realizes that this ski trip will be anything but normal. It doesn’t take long for Wiley to uncover an entirely different culture of skiing as he bonds with locals via the universal language of sliding on snow.
For more on this adventure, be sure to pick up a copy of Issue 2.2 to read our feature on the trip, "Elders of the Gentle Race", which is available in ski shops and on newsstands across Canada now.
