Spotlight: One Day in Las Leñas with Alejo Sanchez

November 7th, 2012 by

 

Thanks to Dorian Densmore for putting together and sending us this awesome little spotlight video of one of Las Leñas’ local legends: Alejo Sanchez.

From Dorian:

Alejo Sanchez sleeps less, snowboards more, and goes bigger in life than most anyone I have ever met. He is a super nice guy who has lived his whole life in Argentina, shredding during our (in the northen hemi), summer months. His strong motivation to work hard in the mountains, combined with his love for nighttime activities, make him a really fun person to hang out with, if you can keep up.

This video shows what it is like to spend one day as Alejo, and follow him through Las Lanas ski resort, his home in the wintertime.

Nice one, guys!
