Intro Andy is a pretty mellow character. He first really started to turn heads a few years ago with a super strong showing at K2's Back Nine Contest held up in Whistler's BC. Andy skied most of the "holes" sans poles and walked away the winner of two holes and secured a 3rd place finish along with 18 G's in prize money. From there it wasn't long before people realized what could be done both forwards and backwards while skiing pow and Andy's segments in PBP's War, Ski Porn and Eric Iberg's Idea were proof. Since then Andy has been working closly with the other athletes from Idea to bring you Nimbus Independent which is definatley a breath of fresh air as far as ski footage goes. The group is super tight and out to show us that skiing can be such a simple pleasure and that it can be done just about anywhere.
