In this short film by Bjarne Salen of Endless Flow, we see extreme skier Andreas Fransson and friends in action, skiing some lines that most people would need two axes to climb up.
These guys are blurring the line between skiing and climbing, or perhaps there is no line at all?
Enjoy this excellent film, showcasing some amazing mountains and fantastic skiers. The film has a great vibe and really got us psyched for winter. Watch out for an appearance from British skiers / climbers Tom Grant and Ben Briggs too.
