“Up and coming” Featured athlete Anders Ujejski

As time progresses the sport of free skiing is evolving at a rapid pace. The North Face continues to help up and coming skiers like Anders Ujejski shoot their shot and make their mark on the sport we love.

“Being comfortable during long days on the mountain, and staying dry when it’s snowing / raining is key. TNF gear is dope. The Build Up pants are super lightweight which is good for spring days. The Dawnstrike GTX jacket is super comfortable and the green goes IMO (in my opinion).”   Anders

What aspect of skiing do you specialize in?

I guess it depends on the day and what I’m feeling. I ski park when conditions are dry but when there’s new snow I’m skiing pow. I also started dabbling in the streets this year too so when I feel like getting bodied I’ll go try to hit a street spot haha

What is the dopest thing about Skiing?

Spring hotlaps with all the homies. Hard to beat.
