Andreas Fransson’s Lyngen Descents
Norwegian lines with the world's best under-the-radar ski mountaineer.
Andreas Fransson is arguably the world’s best, smartest steep skier. He’s not much of a self promoter; he’s been very quietly ticking off huge descents without trying to create much buzz. But that’s about to change. This year, Mike Douglas produced a documentary about him, which is already winning accolades. We’ve got a profile of Fransson coming out in our December issue, but for now you can watch him climb and ski big lines in the Lyngen Alps. And look like he’s having a hell of a time doing it.
