In the search of the ads…

My professor thought it was very important to read every single issue of Åka Skidor magazine that had been released in the past ten years. To see the patterns in the ads I’m writing my essay about. I guess he was right, but it’s a bummer I didn’t realize this the first time I looked through them all… Not the funniest thing I’ve done lately.

KASK

Went to Stockholm today to visit the KASK office. Met Sverre, and he gave me this sweet hat and some other cool gear. New goggles are king! Now I’m off to the royal library to read 100 magazines. Ciao!

Blue cheese and whisky goddammit!

Well… When I passed this one in the grocery store – not much to think about! Can’t wait until breakfast tomorrow. “How about some bread with our new blue cheese and whisky soft cheese?” Yes!

Student life

As a comeback to my friend “Telemarksper’s” blog earlier today – you’re not the only one in major study crisis. I also have another problem: What the fuck was I thinking when I bought lunch!? It seemed like a healthy, good lunch at the store. But now, when I’m eating it, it seems like a small, tasteless lunch for a cheap student! Merde… I’m turning into something… not good. Ah! Fuck it. Back to the library. T-minus about two weeks, then I’m handing in this shit. Hopefully…

XS

Just trying if I can blog from my phone again. Re-installed the app today. This is a pic from the meeting with The North Face in Banff last week. And the question is: will Nick Martini give up XXL? Is XS down vests the next big thing? Only the future can tell…

A wake up call (Reuters 50 best pictures of the year)

This might not all be pretty pictures, but they’re all very good pictures. I wouldn’t suggest it to young kids, but the rest of you should have a look. This is the kind of stuff that gives me perspective, and it makes it easier to keep my mouth shut, when I want to complain about my daily life in Sweden…

Link to Reuters.

Ice cream happiness

Just wanted to try my new Canon S95. It’s a sweet pocket cam. Records in HD-movies (this is not HD though), and got the same sensor as the G12, but is half the size. Sweet!

Had a dinner this saturday to celebrate that Bea and her sister handed in their essays. Hurray! After two weeks och fckn buffet mayhem in Austria and Canada, I was not up for dessert. Others took care of that instead. Ha ha!

This is the view from stage, just before  the movie. As always – legendary.

Crowded as hell!

Banff

Hola

Been in Banff for a couple of days now. Cool to meet all the other The North Face Athletes, and good to get some information about everything. Motivated for a new season! Gonna spend some money on camera gear soon, and start shooting more. Looking forward to that.

Don’t have time to write more, look at the pics and read the captions instead.

"Welcome to Canada" 1. Not that nice...

"Welcome to Canada" 2. Nice!

Good solution for the skis there!

I like Canada. And I like making fires. I like this car.

Pretty ok breakfast view...

Callum Petit, with whom I'm sharing room, starring in: "Empty eyes".

Sweet!

This is what the other athlete do for a living. "Canadian Death Race". I'm pretty glad I'm a skier, and not an endurance runner...

Yuji, completing a route that had been on the wall for 6 months without anyone getting further than like 10%...

Dave Short, Mike Riddle, (a hidden) Tom Wallisch, Dana Flahr, Kaitlyn Ferrington, Sage Cattabriga, Lucas Debari, Nick Martini, Ian McIntosh. Discussing something important.

Sideshow Bo... Sorry, Xavier de le Rue.

Callum Petit. Lots of energy.
