So, this is the return of my blog, after a long time with just small phone updates. Hello!
Today I had my first real day skiing this season. And… I think it’s the best first day ever. I remember last year was pretty epic too, but this was better…
Was shredding with my buddy and awesome boarder Daniel Furberg (who started a small snowboard brand, make sure to check out Furberg Snowboards), FWT dude Wille Lindberg and the backflip master Olof Larsson. Good times! But my shins hurts oh so bad now… Always a week of adapting before they’re back on track.
Some shots. Will start shooting more.
Sweetgrass did it again. Their new trailer is nothing else than magic. See. Enjoy. Share.
Shredding and fishing?! Yep… I feel that I’ve been so lucky lately. Got to go to Alta for a meeting with Tecnica and Blizzard. Super nice to meet the guys over there, test some new skis, talk about the future, and just have a good time. Made some new friends, and got to ski with some truly amazing skiers. And I’m not only talking about the athletes, but all the guys at the meeting. Such good times!
Paid a visit to the Soulpole factory one night. Got to do our own poles! Awesome. Thanks Bryon!
Also got to ski a new prototype from Blizzard. Can’t say that much, but I’m stoked as HELL on that ski.
And to top a kind of perfect week off, I got to go fish the Green River together with some great fishermen. It was too good to be true almost. AMAZING place. So greatful… Thank you so much Mike and Brian for taking me with you! And Jed, Bart and Stefano too. Had a very, very good day.
So, here are a lot of pictures. If you’re reading at Freeride.se, you need to click the photos to read the captions, which you should.
Have been in Alta, Utah, for a couple of days now. Don’t know if it’s the greatest snow on earth at the moment, but yesterday was really fun! And we got some faceshots.
Haven’t been shooting that much, but here are a couple of photos from the last days. Pictures are not in order, don’t know why…
Just started a mission together with Sverre Liliequist, Christoffer Sjöström and Kina Zeidler. We’re doing the Glacier Express for the Swedish newspaper SvD and some other magazines. Had our first day shooting yesterday, and it went about as good as it could with the conditions we have here. It’s good at some places, but we had to search for them…
Today it’s overcast, and no new snow, so we’re gonna shoot some diamonds and other St Moritz stuff. It’s kind of fun to see this town. So different from… me, and what I normally do. But, you can always learn something from it. Here are some pics from yesterday. If you’re reading at Freeride.se, you need to click the pictures to see the captions.
Oh! And I must nog forget to say BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Matilda Rapaport, who I’m living together with in Engelberg. She got a wildcard to Verbier Extreme, and managed to win the competition. So awesome! Happy for her, but not surprised.
Engelberg had a couple of really good days now. It’s been deep powder, and I’ve been shooting some together with Mattias Fredriksson. It’s been me, Oskar Scherlin (Who I haven’t met before. Nice guy!), Mattias girlfriend Elle, and Sebastian Garhammer. Good crew! Here are a couple of photos. More coming. If you’re reading at Freeride.se, you need to click photos for captions.
Had a day off today. Pretty good for my legs I guess, even though it sucks so bad to sit in front of the computer for a whole day. Jason and Aidan went shredding for a while, but couldn’t reallt make it happen with the weather.
It’s kind of difficult right now. The last proper dump is new a few weeks back, and the snow is… super fun to ski, but not super easy to shoot in. Too fast for pillows, and not really sun on any bigger lines. Still good times here in the Sweetgrass house! But a dump wouldn’t hurt, for sure. The sad thing is that it doesn’t seem like it’s gonna snow for a while. Bummer…
Here are some characters from this house. A lovely house. And some snow shots from the last days.
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.
