Andrew McLean is one of the best known ski mountaineering athletes in North America. The guy’s written the book (literally) on skiing in the Wasatch, and he’s also known for ski mountaineering descents around the world, including places like Alaska, where he’s skied the three most prominent peaks in the Alaska Range (Denali, Foraker and Hunter), and Antarctica.
