Life Below Zero

Life Below Zero follows six people as they battle for the most basic necessities in the state with the lowest population density in the United States. Living at the ends of the world’s loneliest roads and subsisting off the rugged Alaskan bush, they battle whiteout snow storms, man-eating carnivores, questionable frozen terrain, and limited resources through a long and bitter winter.

Character Bio

Erik Salitan photo
Erik Salitan lives 67 miles north of the Arctic Circle. For his first two years in Alaska, Erik lived in a primitive tent with no floor. It was simply shelter from the weather. There, Erik lived out the real definition of subsistence, and those memories remain his favorite. Erik is an unlikely entrepreneur who owns his own hunting and guiding business. During the off-season, Erik hunts, fly-fishes, and traps in the Alaskan bush. He also joins safari and hunting clubs in the lower 48 while building his business for the upcoming season.

Erik is a professional hunter and registered guide in Alaska. Fully self-sufficient, he personally kills every piece of meat he eats and will use the rest of the animal for clothing and tools. Erik came to Alaska at the age of 18 because he did not want to get stuck in a factory job. Although not born there, Erik believes Alaska is where he will die. Erik lives a modest life, but his backyard is a million dollar view. Alaska presents real challenges, but Erik is living his dream.
