ADAM KLINGETEG (SWE) / Photographer
Mountains, music, fashion or people - there’s little thing that Adam hasn’t pointed his camera at. So far, his work has been featured in travel books, surf, ski and mountain bike magazines and he’s not planning to slow down. This year, Adam is travelling all the way from Stockholm to work and shoot in the stunning area of Courmayeur Mont Blanc. "I’ve actually never been to this part of the Alps, so I’m extremely excited to come here!“

SEBASTIAN ODEN SANDBLAD (SWE) / Filmer
A creative genius out of the Swedish west coast. A place which has given him a lot more of surfing than skiing. Have been following a promising South African olympic snowboarder for the latest but is now (just in time) available to join the Swedish team.
Knows how to get a good vibe out of just everything.

ERIK LUNDMARK (SWE) / Skier
Skiing is something Erik grew up with, since his family has a huge interest for skiing, so it has always been a part of his life. For years, he was shredding the park, but nowadays he’s on the hunt to ride some fresh pow. His goals have been and will always be to ski with friends, film, compete, travel, evolve as a skier and make sure to have a really good time while doing that.
The head of Dødsrytt, the fastest riding crew out of Sweden. Doesn't matter if the mountain is milky grey and the snow is packed to the max, he just goes for full send and stomp all the time. Probably with a Judas Priest soundtrack in the background.
Also originating from the competitive scene with a creative style and big shiftys which has led him to compete in the World Cup and more. Now easily living life in in the backcountry.

WILLIAM LARSSON (SWE) / Skier
Since becoming Peak Performance Rookie of the Year 2015, William hasn’t stopped to impress. Thanks to his solid background in freestyle, William has a playful and string approach to every aspect of skiing the mountains all over the globe! "This rider has impressed us by his versatile skills on the mountain. Through his playful skiing he has made the most of every obstacle in his way. He has shown us that he is no one hit wonder!“
The pure joy of skiing truely shines through when you see William ski. When he looks at a mountain he sees nothing but opportunities to draw fun lines and find the biggest hits. With a background in the Swedish slopestyle scene and now more a big mountain skiier, he surely knows how to lay down tricks wherever.
Been working a lot with photographer Adam before and won’t say no to a cup of ”kokkaffe"

KLAUS POLZER (GER) / Photographer
Klaus Polzer’s journey to life as photographer was an unlikely one – first, he studied physics. “But I liked to spend my winters in the mountains,” he says. His passion got serious and he began competing in the first freeride comps. Then, he was asked to join a German freeski mag. And finally, these days he’s at the helm of Downdays.
“For me, a great photo is one that makes me feel what was going on at the moment the photo was taken. When a photo can make you re-live those moments, it’s great.”
“What I prefer,” he says, “is to get up, get a coffee, pack my ski and photo gear and head out into the mountains.” Who can argue with that?
Oh, and he already won the COTM...

FLO ALBERT (AUT) / Filmer

GIULIA MONEGO (ITA) / Skier
Giulia is a passionate strong skier, IFMGA mountain guide in the making and all-around climber who made the mountains her home since the early stages of her life. Her love for snow made her move first to the Dolomites then to the Swiss Alps to finally end up at the foot of Mont Blanc massif where she is currently living.
As a former professional freeskier, she won Verbier Xtreme in 2006 and competed in the FWT. Soon after she expanded her focus not only in freeriding but also exploring adventurous steep skiing and aesthetic lines in big mountains around the world scoring. Giulia will join Click on The Mountain for her first time.

SOPHIE LECHASSEUR (CAN) / Skier
Originally from Quebec Canada, she stopped racing in 2003 and moved straight to Whistler where she started freeriding. After many years there, she was dreaming about the Alps. After spending 3 winters in Chamonix, she finally moved to France a couple years ago. Now based in Les Arcs France, she spends her Winters having fun on skis with friends, finding the good snow and travelling around to discover new spots.
