Spirit of Alaska – Henrik Windstedt

THERE IS A FEELING that is shared with skiers all over the world. It’s nothing you can teach, learn or explain. It’s something you feel. Something you know. It stops you from sleeping during a snowstorm – knowing that fresh powder awaits you. It gives you the urge to continue hiking up the mountain when everyone else is stopping at the top of the ski lift. It hits you when looking back at your line at the bottom of a run, wanting to go back up and do it again. It’s a different way of looking at the world and something only A Skier Knows.

Spirit of Alaska. Henrik Windstedt and Matilda Rapaport goes to Alaska in search of steep powdery spines, but end up struggling both with the mountains and them selves. Watch the enchanting edit for the full story. Production by Whiteout Pictures.
