Whether in his style or his career, Sammy Carlson has never accepted stasis. The kid who kicked in skiing’s doors with the discipline’s first-ever triple cork became the man who walked away from competition on his own terms when he found a better outlet for his creativity. Today, he’s establishing himself as one of the world’s great backcountry skiers with some of the most spectacular segments ever captured on film – including The Sammy C Project, as well as being a major influence on the all new ARV 116.
“Skiing is an art, it’s a life-long passion. Whatever you do, it’s all about the adventure…Skiing is what you make it,” Sammy told us.
Unsurpassed imagination with zero tolerance for convention.
