Kristoffer Turdell entered his very first Freeride World Qualifier (FWQ) just three years ago. In 2018, he was crowned the Freeride World Tour (FWT) champion, and that’s not even the most impressive thing about Kristoffer’s lifestyle. While many competitors in the FWT train year round, Kristoffer often returns home to work in the mines in his home town of Gllivare, Sweden, a tireless and demanding task. His work ethic between skiing, working and studying is one that has never been seen before.

Learn about Kristoffer’s home town, beginning of his ski career and his thoughts on competing in the FWT in this beautifully crafted short documentary presented by Black Crows Skis.
