Nadir Maguet Pivots to Fast and Light Alpinism in ‘FKT Project’

The champion ski mountaineer is always looking for new ways to challenge himself above treeline.

“When I do what I want, I am more satisfied with myself,” La Sportiva athlete Nadir Maguet says to the camera in the opening minutes of FKT Project.

And what he wants to do is fast and light alpinism.

The pursuit marks a change of pace for Maguet, who’s a force to be reckoned with in the ski mountaineering world. Now, as he searches for an identity beyond that discipline, he’s set his eyes on breaking several fastest known times.

Give FKT Project a watch, especially if you’ve been thinking about how you define yourself as an athlete. Who are you really competing against?
