Backe, also featured on our Athletes‘ section, found himself in gorgeous Geilo, Norway, warming up for the season and his ongoing BackeBreie Tour project.
The BackeBreie Tour is a project that Anders is doing with photographer Vegard Breie. The two of them travel to unique locations where the photographer is documenting the athlete’s efforts to push his skiing limits with new tricks and improve on the ones he already masters.

Somewhere between cutting bands, meetings and photo shootings with photographer Kalle Hägglund for a press-release for Skistar’s new resorts openings, the athlete managed to squeeze in a few days at home, training and enjoying other outdoors activities.
