2000 Days on Skins

Seen It All?

It doesn't get more 'backcountry' than the winter life of G3 athlete Lars Andrews, ACMG/IFMGA.

G3 has been proud to support Lars' antics since day 1, and greatly value the feedback and insight that spawns from his experience in the field. Read The Whitecap Life for a taste of his winter, and stay tuned for a new webisode of Lars, the new skins, and a whole lot of BC backcountry good times.
