We had the opportunity to film with first time blind skier, Dale Pollak, as he got back on skis for the first time without his sight. Blind adventurer, Erik Weihenmayer, inspired Dale to give skiing another shot and was there to mentor him on the slopes.
Dale has ironically been called a 'visionary' in the auto industry and it was so inspiring to watch him apply his fearless business approach to a new challenge. The courage these blind skiers exude is truly contagious. Edit coming soon.
