Trying

We’re trying pretty hard to get stuff done here in Nelson. It’s been difficult, since it’s a long time since the last snowfall. But we’re shooting stuff you don’t want to shoot when conditions are epic, so it’s good times anyway! Trying to be creative.

The rest of the Sweetgrass crew, Nick Waggoner and Michael Brown, just came back from the Sentry Lodge, where they have been filming Kye Petersen, Eric Hjorleifson, and Zack Giffin. Dream team, and dream snow. Saw some of the footage, and… Next level footage.

Some pocket camera shots (if you’re reading at Freeride.se, you have to click the pics to read the captions):

Waiting game…

Sitting in the same room, waiting for the same snow, with same Oskar, Stephan and Ben. Don’t know if it’s gonna happen… It was raining today though, so hopefully it started getting better again. We’re hoping for that. Here are som iPhone shots of what we’ve been up to lately:

A lot of stuff to look at in Alaska. Like this boat.

This setup have kind of become “my” setup. I like the mug best.

This cat always tries to get in if there’s an open window or door. Here she’s (he’s?) super bummed after being thrown out. It tried to eat stuff…

AK.

I’ve been running (jogging) a bit the last days. Good for keeping the cabin fever away. Here I got to a dead end, so I chilled for a bit.

I asked if I could buy this gentlemen’s jacket. I could not. Bummer.

Trying to keep the heli-belly away. But this is the only meal where I was successful in terms of healthieness I’m afraid of…

“View.”

Hung out a bit with Field Productions yesterday. Started of with some manly action. Here’s the master boss Filip Christensen going for the kill. Everybody nailed it, except me.

Espen, Tom and some fresh crab. Sweet!

20120414-224513.jpg
The Field guys had awesome landlords, who invited us to their home. They also had an awesome dog. Fun little… thing.

Great minds think alike.

20120414-224807.jpg
I hang out too much with my iPhone, and sometimes I wish a monster would come and eat it, so that I could focus more on real things.

20120414-225025.jpg
Let-me-think-one-second – NO.

20120414-225201.jpg
We missed it. Darn.

20120414-225241.jpg
If the Hercules plate is taken, I normally go for the bear.

20120414-225339.jpg
Sweet!

20120414-225421.jpg
Too much good heli-belly-building stuff here…

20120414-225535.jpg
So I’m trying to move my ass a bit every day. The jog starts here.

20120414-225652.jpg
Went for a massage today. I enjoyed looking into that note in the ceiling. We need some pep-talk here. I also enjoyed getting properly beat up in the too many stiff parts of my body.

20120414-230017.jpg
And I got to lie down on probably to coolest blanket ever. Wolf, bear AND fish. Sweet lord…

20120414-230154.jpg
I like how some dirty water can deliver such a clear reflection…

20120414-230331.jpg
Swedish pancakes for dinner today. Liked it.

Now it’s passed bedtime. Goodnight.

Alaska photo blog

Having the second down day here in Haines. Carston Oliver went home a couple of days ago, and we’re waiting for Bryce Phillips to replace him. And we need a reset. There’s some good snow left, but it’s getting really hard to find it… The rest of the crew still in Haines – Oskar Enander, Stephan Drake and Ben Sturgulewski from Sweetgrass Productions – are not as tough today as yesterday (Ben’s looking good though), and I’m the only one without a hanover. Feels pretty good… I might as well stop write, and have you looking at the pictures instead. If you’re reading my blog at Freeride.se, you have to click the photos to read the captions.

Video from our Alaska trip

Here’s a beautiful video from our trip to Alaska last April. Ben Sturgulewski from Sweetgrass Productions put some mellow clips together, to show the love we have to the last light:
