Spring skiing in Lyngen, Norway - there’s few things I like better to do in the end of April!

Light to Shadow


It was with great sadness that I heard last Sunday about the death of Ueli Steck, an Alpinist & Mountaineer I greatly looked up to. I was fortunate enough to meet Ueli several times throughout the last four years, and it all started with this video interview with him. He was a warm, friendly person and I always enjoyed chatting with him, about Finland, Switzerland, alpinism and climbing. I sincerely wish his wife and family much love & strength in this time of mourning.

Ueli, we miss you, says Steve House.

“Goodbye Ueli” wishes Will Gadd.
