Crash, Get Back-Up And Learn – Important Life Lessons Of A Free Skiing Athlete That Can Inspire Us All [Video]

This video teaches an important lesson – how to deal with set-backs in life. With so much of modern life focussed on being successful, it’s humbling to hear people’s real struggles and how they overcame them.

It’s ok to be human, real and fallible.

Aleksander Aurdal grew up crashing in just about every possible way before he settled with the sport of free skiing.

The level of free skiing has really progressed the last few years and consequently increased the risk of getting hurt when learning new and dangerous tricks. Aleksander now uses his previous crash experience to avoid getting hurt in this fast progressing sport.
