Andreas Fransson might be the guy skiing the gnarliest lines on Earth right now. South face of Denali, AK solo? Only person to have ever skied it. Enough said.
This guy is also a climbing machine. His endurance is matched by very few.
He’s been through the ringer as well. In 2010, Andreas shattered his upper body in Chamonix and spent a long time in a hospital.
Since that injury he’s come back with a vengeance, garnered sponsors, and enjoyed the limelight. Andreas is doing what he loves full time now, and it shows.
You know you’ve made it, when helicopters show up to film you ski.
“Being grateful makes you happier and we have so much to be grateful for, spending our time in the mountains. This is a short edit about enjoying the full mountain experience. Trying, trying, trying and… Failing sometimes, but also reaping the rewards in different parts of the game. And more than that –enjoying every day spent among the mountains, the clouds and fresh air, its purest form. Life can be as simple as just that.” – Bjarne Salén
