VIDEO: Happy Winter
A happy little video by Bjarne Salén and Andreas Fransson
Bjarne Salén and Andreas Fransson love being in the elements and the mountains. Me too. But my version of “out there” is just a little bit different than theirs. Case in point: skip to 3:50 in the video where the sheer size and scope of their descent with Samuel Anthamatten down the Pain du Sucre in Chamonix comes into focus. (And for more of that, pick up our November issue and flip to the Shooting Gallery.) Still, even if our mountain equilibriums are different, we can all share that optimism. So Happy (almost) Winter!
