High energy, positive vibes, and genuine love for the mountains are what define Mattias Fredriksson. On top of that, he is probably one of the most published action sports photographers in the world. Last winter, Stellar Equipment went to Terrace, British Columbia to visit the Swede and his family on their new home soil. Shames Mountain, Canada’s first non-profit community service ski co-operative, serves as the playground for the week. Local superstar, Tikaani, a four-year-old Siberian husky, joins in to shred some powder in the backcountry, and Mattias talks about how his love for skiing and photography has taken him to where he is now.
