Andrew McLean specializes in steep skiing in remote locations.  With first descents on all seven continents, he has carved turns in places such as Baffin Island, Antarctica, Iran and Morocco. As a ski mountaineer, he climbs peaks before skiing down them and his expeditions often involve spending weeks or months camped in cold, snowy locations.  A veteran of twenty expeditions and hundreds of first descents, Powder Magazine recently voted McLean as “One of the Greatest Skiers of Our Time.”  By profession, he designs mountain climbing equipment and uses many of his own inventions while skiing.  He is also the author of “The Chuting Gallery – A Guide to Steep Skiing in the Wasatch Mountains” which was the first skiing guidebook devoted to steep ski mountaineering. He lives with his wife Polly and baby daughter, Mira in Park City, Utah.
