To Risk Your Life For A Ski Run | Eulogy Of A Steep Skier

When the title includes the word “eulogy” and the topic addresses such a high-risk sport as steep skiing, I feared the worst possible ending to Nikolai Schirmer’s Eulogy Of A Steep Skier. Instead, this informative and entertaining video turned out to be something of a tribute to steep-skiing legend Andreas Fransson—hence the “eulogy.”

Norway’s Lyngen Alps look rugged and awesome, and the skiing on this terrain is at times truly death-defying.
