Learning to Accept Risk on Alaskan Spines: ‘Kodak Courage’ Part 2

In the second episode of Sam Giffin's new film "Kodak Courage"–presented by Hand Crank Films–Sam gets over his reluctance to get back into ski filming and joins his brother Zack Giffin on a trip out to Haines, Alaska to shoot some classic spine skiing. Along the way, Sam explains how–while the shots may look incredible–skiing for film ultimately dilutes the true joy of skiing, and can lead to situations where safety is compromised.
