Skiing in Åre

Had so much fun skiing in Åre this weekend. They managed to open up the cable car that takes you all the way up to the top, so we even did some real freeskiing! In November!! Good times skiing with lots of friends I haven’t seen in a while and some good apres ski beers after that. Awesome weekend!!

At the top of the cable car, full winter up there

The snow is back! This time I’m in Trondheim, Norway and the ground is all covered with fresh fluffy snow. We’ve already had a few days with temperatures reaching down to -10 so I couldnt be more stoked! Winter plans are being set and the first day on skis is coming up in Åre in just one week.

Meanwhile, check out this short edit from last season, made by my good friend Johan Huczkowsky.

A long nice summer is about to come to its end. For me it started off with a few weeks of work in construction in Stockholm. Had a lot of fun there with good people and it’s always nice to work outside. After that I headed to Greece for 3 weeks of spearfishing and riding around on our motor bike. I shouldn’t complain but this year was way to warm for me. A lot of the fishes decided they didn’t like the hot water and swam down to the deep blue sea. Anyway, a lot of good times in Greece! When I came back from Greece, I was wedding photographer at a beautiful wedding in the archipelago of Stockholm. A few days after that we decided to take the Volvo on a roadtrip down to Gothenburg, Trollhättan and a short stop to say hi to Patrik and Pauli at 8848 Altitude in Borås. Super stoked on the new collection coming this season!

Finally we’ve made it to Trondheim and I must say that Åre, that we passed on the way, is extremly green and beautiful this time of the year!

NM 2012

Just back from a super fun week in Riksgränsen where I came 7th at the Scandinavian Big Mountain Championships. My skiing felt really good so the season finale couldn’t have been better. This years comp had in total four runs and a lot of great runs went down. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such high standard of skiing in Riksgränsen.

Here are videos from two of my runs.

I'm back in Umeå now after an awesome week in Åre. Blue bird and good skiing every day. This year they had enough snow to build the Freeride park at the top of the mountain. I took a couple of laps each day through the park, but spent most of the time freeriding around the mountain. Lots of snow and fun cliffs.

Lots of features at the top of Åre

Next up for me is the Scandinavian Big Mountain Championships in Riksgränsen. Last comp for the season but also spring skiing with lots of good friends. Hope to see you guys there!

POV from FWT Snowbird

This is my run from the Freeskiing World Tour in Snowbird. Blue bird and a good day, but the sound from that concrete-like snow is just gnarly.

Check my last post for pictures from that day!

Epic days in Salt Lake City

Last 10 days we’ve been on a trip to Salt Lake City in Utah. Here are some photos..

12 hour drive straight through Nevada

We started off with the FWT in Snowbird. The venue was icy and filled with bumps. I had a pretty good run going on but went a little bit to big on my last drop and backslaped.

Didn’t make the finals, but was happy anyway because the famous Utah powder started falling next day!

Last day we skinned up to the back of Alta and built a super smooth backcountry kicker

On our way home, Gringos in the salt desert of Utah

Went to San Francisco for a couple of days. Such a nice city and pretty sweet to chill around in just a t-shirt in February. Did some seightseeing and checked out a few shops. Just wish I had my longboard over there, but that will have to wait a few more months!

Just chillin

Park shred in Cali

So we are in California now! Such an amazing place. Skiing just 3 hours from San Francisco. Been shredding the park most of the days. Super fun to be back on the narrow park skis throwing down some fancy tricks.

Mt Baker & Mt Hood

From Vancouver we drove straight down to Mt Baker. We rented a little hut in the middle of the forest with our own jacuzzi in the backyard. Epic days with lots of fresh snow every day
